    Made 3 salads in a jar. It's such a wonderful way to spend the time making salad at once, then eat on it for a few days. I've been so successful with that process.

    Tomorrow is May Day. Today we planted some kale and spinach in the garden. Our earth. Critical.

    Hello,
    I listened this AM to 1A on NPR about the clothing industry. All might find this conversation important.

    David Attenborough says, "Rewind the world. Our journey must be guided by a new philosophy or more accurately - a return to an old philosophy." 2020, A life on our Planet
    Yvon Chouinard in 180degrees South says, "Turn around and take a step forward."
    Maybe these two gentlemen have a point!

    I have been having a wonderful time making Salads in a Jar. I have done a pasta salad and green salad. They last several days in the refrigerator (although we eat them before they could go bad!) and taking the time to make 3-4 of them makes the week's salad making super easy. What a great idea!
    Also, I am successful at making a non-meat dinner 2-3 times a week. Not an issue for us as meat is not vital to our daily intake!

    WE watched Just Eat IT. Absolutely a great look at food waste. Gave us a talking platform to chat about how we do with our waste, which we compost or eat!

    Earth Day I am driving my gas powered car to an Earth Day celebration in the larger town close to me. Taking a friend. But, today I picked up garbage and recycle on the 1.5 miles near my house. The snow is melting so more it starting to show.

    Showering is easy for us. We shower at the gym 2 days a week. Showers are purposeful, not for luxury, so keeping it to 5 minutes. Pretty easy.

    Non-waste meals are easy for me. We compost all food scraps for our garden, I keep a container for those scraps I can use in making broth in the freezer. We eat all our leftovers. Not a hard action to attain.

    If accurate, this looks like a wonderful use of all the clothing we trash. I work at a thrift store and see all the fast fashion items that we throw in the trash, many of which could be fixed because of the torn seams. Frustrating for me, but I live remotely so there is no other outlet by and large that wouldn't be too expensive to access. We try to recycle as much as possible and do try to get some of the better items to another charity. Still, too much into the trash.
