Are Landfills Green?

On June 7th, I was fortunate enough to attend the Thesis Defense presentations at the John T. Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies. I had the opportunity to hear Carolyn LaPrade present her topic “Food Waste as a Resource: Rethinking Our Waste Infrastructure” and I’ll never think of garbage the same way again. More...

Wilderness Stewardship, Not Quite Leave No Trace

Small Town Life

Cash National ForestI grew up in a small town in Utah. When I was in grade school, there was no cable television so on summer days, we had to find other things to do. If my brother and I even breathed we were board, my mom would send us out to climb a mountain or go to the swimming hole in the river or take our BB Guns and shoot some cans. More...

I got an email a few days ago; a friend of mine is outraged at Kleenex.  Seems they don't already have enough uses for Virgin, Ancient Forest, they created a new Hand Towel for the bathroom.  If you haven't seen it, check out the commercial here...

I'm not a tree hugger... seriously; I'm just a business owner who would like to leave some air behind for my children to breath when I'm done breathing air myself.

So I figure there are little things I can do like park at the far end of the parking lot and walk into the gym rather than driving around and around in circles looking for the closest parking spot... seriously, I'm getting on a bike or treadmill when I get in the gym anyway. More...
