Reinventing the Dish and the Drainboard to Make Dishwashing Easier

Comments Off on Reinventing the Dish and the Drainboard to Make Dishwashing Easier

Collin is convinced that dishwashers are greener than handwashing , but I am not so sure; one or two people can take a long time to fill one up, and his calculations don’t take into account the embodied energy making the dishwasher, the space it takes up and the cost of buying and maintaining the thing. We have a Bosche that needs a $500 repair and are washing by hand these days, and I have found that the standard dishrack could use a bit of a redesign

Comments Off on Today Is A Starting Point – Thoughts on World Oceans Day

Photos via The Plastiki It’s very exciting to have a world ocean day, and when you think about our planet being covered in 72% of water, one would think that rather than calling it Planet Earth we would call it Planet Ocean. Today, the 8th of June is a very special day , we get to recognise and appreciate the scale of the ocean and how integral it is to our ability to live on this planet. Often we don’t connect with the ocean; it is often out of sight out of mind, an endless horizon that in real…

Comments Off on Seattle High-Rise Being Demolished- It’s All Of Nine Years Old

Buildings have a lot of embodied energy and should last a long time, particularly if they are built of concrete. Concrete is responsible for for a lot of CO2; perhaps as much as 7% of worldwide emissions .

Comments Off on Natural Burial Travels East

Image credit: Final Footprint When I wrote about a Green Burial Expo in California , asking if green burials could be fun, one commenter worried that we were perpetuating the notion that sustainable funerals have to be “wacky” or offbeat. Indeed, while natural burial may give us a great opportunity to refresh and update our rituals around death, they are not just for hippies anymore.
