Comments Off on INFOGRAPHIC: A Guide to Natural, DIY Cleaning Products

We all appreciate a clean living environment, but so many cleaning products out there are full of really nasty chemicals that can wreak havoc on our health. Sure, they’ll get the job done, but they can cause incredible damage to our respiratory systems , not to mention those of our family members and pets as well. Making your own cleaning products is simple and easy , and these natural products (made with ingredients most of us already have around the house) are just as effective as store-bought chemicals, if not moreso! They’re also better for your budget, especially since many of the ingredients can pull double duty around the house. Check out the infographic below for some great tips on how you can make your own laundry detergent, kitchen/bathroom cleaners, and more! The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Ballroom Luminoso: San Antonio Freeway Underpass Transformed Into a Beautiful Gathering Space

Ballroom Luminoso , a new public artwork by Joe O’Connell + Blessing Hancock , was recently installed in a freeway underpass in San Antonio, TX. Composed of six brilliantly lit, color-changing chandeliers, the sculptures are clad in recycled bike parts gleaned from bike co-ops and collectives across the country. Through their use of materials and refined forms, the piece melds grandeur with a sense of neighborhood rejuvenation. + Joe O’Connell + Blessing Hancock The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Supermarkets Transform Their Unsold Spoiled Food Into Green Energy

Two supermarkets are making lemonade out of lemons the green way—by converting their spoiled food into energy . Grocery chains Ralphs and Food 4 Less (both part of the Kroger Co.) have joined forces with FEED Resource Recovery to make use of the rotten and expired foods that their markets don’t sell. Any food that can’t be sold or donated will be transformed into energy to help run their distribution center in Compton.
