My ultimate goal as far as everyday diet would be somewhere between vegan and vegetarian. The only reasons I wouldn't go 100% vegan is if I can find people who make goat cheese without starving/selling off the kids to slaughter, honey without hurting/majorly disturbing the bees beyond what they can handle, or eggs without harming/over-working/slaughtering the chickens.

This biodegradable URN contains a tree seed that gets its nutrients from your ashes. You can become a tree when you die! i suppose this doesn't really belong on my "life" board. /: lol.
This biodegradable urn contains a tree seed that gets its nutrients from your ashes. Essentially, you can become a tree when you die. I'm normally not big on this sort of thing, but this is kinda neat!
This biodegradable URN contains a tree seed that gets its nutrients from your ashes. You can become a tree when you die!. Creepy and awesome
Interesting...wonder what the tree success rate is? Would be a bummer to think you're going to turn into a tree and have a drought or harsh winter the year you die leave you just in a random dirt pile for eternity.

All I have to say is the Pacific Garbage Patch. Look it up. (btw there are garbage patches in every ocean on Earth. The PGP is just the biggest...) Saying you want the ocean's clean but doing something about it is the big thing
This is just an advertisement that is talking about not polluting into the oceans because we wouldn't bathe in water like that so why should the marine life. The reason there is pollution and the water is like this is because of humans and how they interact with the environment.
majority of pollution in the ocean comes from plastic. plastic comes from petroleum and petroleum oil spills are destroying marine systems while burning petroleum simultaneously pollutes the atmosphere. END ALL DRILLING FOR OIL. SWITCH TO SOLARPOWER NOW. All pollution with an identifiable "brand name" is now the legal responsibility of that brand to clean it up or cease doing business on Earth, effective immediately.
You wouldn't bathe in this... then why should marine life? Ocean Conservancy Awareness Campaign

How To Make Your Own Bathroom Cleaners. I'm definitely going to give this a try because, quite frankly, all those chemically cleaning supplies freak me out a bit. I can't pronounce most of the things in it and who knows what it's doing to your skin (if you don't wear gloves) and what those fumes in the air are doing to you. Ick. These natural alternatives are definitely worth a shot.

DIY: Scented Plugin - Refill With Essential Oils - how to reuse the commercial plug in units and refill with nontoxic oils.
Holy Crickey DIY Wallflowers Scented Plugin i’m about to get hippie on you all. plugin air fresheners (and tons of other stuff) have something called VOC in them. VOC stands for “volatile organic compounds” and they are highly toxic. they are chemicals with a low boiling point. VOC cause all sorts of problems in your body: infertility (some of you may like that!), headaches, nervous system disorders, memory loss and cancer for both your pet and you…. lots of things. i was bummed when i learned about this and unplugged mine. being a packrat i couldn’t bring myself to toss it out and thought, maybe i’ll just plug it in for the holidays and poison my loved ones only a few times a year. then i had a bright idea: replace the bad stuff with good stuff: essential oils, which are awesome for you and, sometimes a lot cheaper than the liquid cancer bath and body works sells. here’s how you do it. . remove the wick part (which ironically looks like a cigarette) empty and rinse out the bulb . find an oil you like. i chose peppermint because its pretty cheap and it makes my house smell cool and clean. i highly recommend orange, lavender, cinnamon, roman chamomile, clary sage, lemon, rose, grapefruit, jasmine or ylang ylang oil. . pour the oil into the bulb . i fill it up about 1/3 of the way but it will last lay longer if you do the whole thing. . fill the rest of the bulb with water, but not to the top or else inserting the wick with make it spill. put the wick back in the bulb. . screw it back into the plug in part and enjoy refreshing, healing air that won’t make your hair fall out.

How to Protect Your Family from the Dangers of Formaldehyde (1) Open the windows regularly to let fresh air in & old air out. Many toxic substances can build up, opening the windows gives them a good opportunity to exit. (2) Make your own cleaners. (3) Get Plants - one of the most effective ways to remove harmful chemicals from indoor air. Ferns are thought to remove formaldehyde most effectively. Chrysanthemums are also very good.
