Reduce Your Child’s Carbon Bumprint

In a perfect world, all parents would use cloth diapers and reusable baby wipes to greatly reduce the footprint their baby’s bottom leaves on the planet during the diapering stage. But in reality, one-time-use baby wipes are a staple in every parent’s bag of tricks. Used for wiping up messy […]

Dished Out Sex With a Side of Burlesque

Saucy spaghetti anyone?

Lustables: Poopy Packs

If you’re going to scoop the poop, you might as well do it with style. The nice thing about babies is that your poop collection duties eventually halt. With dogs, on the other hand, you’ve got a long walk ahead. Treat yourself, your dog and the planet with dignity by […]

Plant Pots That Can Magically Disappear (I Mean, Biodegrade)

However, they would be if you’d bought them from EcoForms. EcoForms is an environmentally friendly company, producing pots out […]

Lustables: Wasara Dinner Party Plates

The supple and biodegradable Wasara series is made from reed, bamboo and sugarcane waste. If a Communion wafer mated with a tulip, their love child would probably look a lot like a Wasara.

Corny Cutlery

My environmental cop husband gripes that everything portable that touches our girls’ mouths is made of plastic, from yogurt tubes and Vitamin Water bottles to the spoons I throw in their vinyl lunch boxes. But recently he turned me on to cutlery made of corn starch, biodegradable spoons, forks and knives that are even wrapped in compostable bags […]

Note to the Notemakers: Not So Tough, Please

Modern life is complicated, and we all need reminders of what we’re supposed to be doing – hence the rise of Post-It notes, everyone’s favorite temporary reminder. Except…maybe they’re not temporary enough. Post-Its are one of the most lauded accidental inventions in history. A 3M scientist named Spencer Silver invented […]

In Hard Times, Food Vendors Keep on Truckin’

Everyone’s dishing about how the concept of food trucks has been overhauled. They’re not just parked at job sites to feed hungry laborers anymore, but are taking the high road and giving restaurants a run for their money. I got a taste of the trend at the posh 50th birthday […]
