We’ve seen numerous efforts over the years to purify water and make it safe for drinking, but it wasn’t until just recently that we came across one invention designed specifically with desalinization in mind...

 

Editor's Note from Margaret Marchuk: An Italian designer has invented an eco-distiller that uses solar power to make salt water drinkable, making safe drinking water for people in developing countries.

Having spent many of my formidable years tucked well below the Bible Belt, I have a special affinity for whiskey–bourbon to be precise. While a nip is sure to warm you up on a cold winter’s day (or cool you down when mixed with ice, simple syrup, and a squeeze of lemon) I didn’t think this delightful spirit was capable of much more.

 

Editor's Note from Margaret Marchuk: A Scottish company is turning thousands of tons of waste left behind in the whiskey making process into fuel for our cars. Distillers, drivers and the environment benefit!

The Nokero solar-powered light is one solution that is aiming to deal with the problem, and now deciwatt.org’s GravityLight joins it in providing cheap, safe and environmentally-friendly light for developing nations...

 

Editor's Note from Margaret Marchuk: The GravityLight provides cheap, safe and environmentally safe light for developing nations. There are no batteries so there are no costs after the initial investment, and there are zero waste products and no deteriorating parts. The video explains how it all works.

Cotton is one of the most heavily sprayed agricultural crops in the world, using chemicals that are harmful in many ways. Cotton accounts for more than 10% of pesticide use and approximately 25% of insecticide use worldwide. Organic cotton farming avoids the use of chemicals by promoting healthy plants and soil to control the pests and weeds, and eliminates the need for genetically modified crops...

Editor's Note from Zorica Denton: Urban Gleaners in Portland, OR rescues over 500,000 pounds of food a year from being thrown into landfills, and instead they made sure it went to people in need. In addition to the 10 agencies they supply food to, they also deliver to 1,200 families! This is all that slightly imperfect stuff you never see on the shelves of stores... it's a GREAT idea and very reproducible.

Editor's Note from Margaret Marchuk: If you find yourself without electricity at home, on the road or in the wildnerness camping, all you need is the power of the sun and these devices to help charge your electronic devices or start a fire.

Despite frequent exhortations not to print at the bottom of people’s emails, we still seem to be drowning in paper. I do my best to (a) reduce = not print (b) reuse = fill the GOOS (good on one side) box for homework and other notes and (c) recycle...

 

Editor's Note from Margaret Marchuk: If you still feel concerned about paper use and waste in your office, then consider this paper composed of 80% wheat straw fibre (a waste product) and 20% virgin wood pulp (Forest Stewardship Council certified).

Worm composting, also known as vermicomposting, is the process of transforming organic waste using worms to create fine black granular compost known as worm castings or worm compost. Rich in phosphorus, nitrogen, and other nutrients and trace minerals, worm compost is a great source of slow-release nutrients for your plants or lawn and is an excellent all round organic fertilizer and soil conditioner. Worm composting is a very convenient way of composting for apartment dwellers and anyone else who would have difficulty maintaining an outdoor compost pile. Here’s how to get started...

Using Toilet Paper Made from Old-Growth Forests?

from GrinningPlanet.com

With all the waste paper in the world that can be recycled and all the acres/hectares of forest land that are now used to grow trees for pulp mills, is there any reason for us to cut down giant swaths of old-growth forest to make toilet paper, facial tissues, and other single-use paper products?
