Pothos is a draping houseplant. It can be marbled white/green, yellow/green, jade, or neon green. The stems are pretty as cut foliage in a wine glass, potted or suspended. Pothos need very little care: just weekly watering and bright to very low light. - does this mean this is a plant I might not kill?

Is your diet adding to or taking away from your environmental footprint #treadlightly
Please, this is the only (Mother) Earth we have.
June 5 is World Environment Day, but every day we need to reduce carbon emissions. It has just been announced that the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is higher than it has ever been. Scientists say there is still time to change, barely. Issues like climate change, global emissions and plastics are very real. Make a few changes in your daily routine and help make a difference long-term. More info at this site.

There are many environmental and health issues to consider when making the choice between being a carnivore and a vegetarian. If you are a meat eater, check out this guide to eating meat (greenly) complete with helpful #infographics. #smartliving
Meatless Mondays, Health Food, Eating Meat, Animal Welfare, Meat Eater, 2011 Meat, Eater Guide, Health Wel, Eating Greener
When you do choose to eat meat and cheese, go greener. There are many environmental, health and animal welfare reasons to choose meat and dairy products that come from organic, pasture-raised, grass-fed animals. It may cost more, but when you buy less meat overall, you can afford to go healthier and greener.
Keeping Mondays Meaty - Earth Day 2012 is coming up this weekend, leading to much needed talk about how our food choices impact the planet. Most of this talk, as usual, centers on “veg centric” diets with all of us strongly urged to take the Environmental Working Group’s Meatless Monday pledge...

Gary Anderson's Recycle symbol, American Home magazine, 1971.
In 1970, Gary Anderson was a 23-year-old college student at the University of Southern California, when a Chicago container company held a design contest to raise awareness about the environment. Anderson’s submission won, and it became the internationally recognized recycling logo… he was paid $2,500 for it.
In 1970, Gary Anderson was a 23-year-old college student at the University of Southern California, when a Chicago container company held a design contest to raise awareness about the environment. Anderson’s submission won, and it became the internationally recognized recycling logo--and a design classic that ranks with the Coca-Cola and Nike marks, for sheer ubiquity. As Earth Day approaches, here's a little bit of history to share with your students.

Solar Wind bridge concept could power 15,000 homes, grow vegetables: Why just use solar power or wind power when you can use both? Designed by Francesco Colarossi, Giovanna Saracino and Luisa Saracino as part of an Italian design contest, this so-called Solar Wind concept would have solar cells embedded in the roadway (an idea that's already catching on) and an array of 26 wind turbines underneath, which the designers say could produce enough energy combined to power 15,000 homes.
The Solar Wind bridge is an extraordinary concept proposed by Francesco Colarossi, Giovanna Saracino and Luisa Saracino as part of an Italian design contest. It can be considered as a super energy model which is capable of generating both Solar and Wind energy with the help of embedded Solar panels (coated with transparent plastic) on the surface of the road and 26 Wind turbines attached underneath the bridge.

Green roofs environmental benefits Green roofs can be advantageous for many reasons: Reduce heating and cooling Increase the roof life span by at least double Grow fruits, vegetables, and flowers Reduce run-off storm water Filter pollutants and CO2 out of the air Insulate for sound and heat Filter pollutants and heavy metals out of rainwater Increase wildlife habitat

Roofs that hold water: reduce heating and cooling costs, increase life of roof, and create a rooftop garden! Would be great on a shipping container home, as there might be a risk of collapsed roof otherwise if drainage isn't sufficient.
