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?

Support Local Farmers. Local food! *woot!* More sustainable, helps your own community and economy. Healthier food on your table for your family. :)
Support Local Farmers by PhoebeWahl on Etsy.
I shop at local farmer's markets. I choose to support small farms, artisan producers and independent local businesses. It's about sharing the love, being kinder to the planet.
Ask important questions at farmers markets: did you grow this and where is your farm? Many vendors buy at the same wholesale warehouse the groceries use. Support LOCAL farmers.

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.

Wind Turbine Bridge Transforms Italian Viaduct Into Public Space
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.

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.
