You know that saying, ‘Give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, he’ll eat for a lifetime?’ This sentiment is pretty fitting for a new service available in the local food and gardening movement. Farmyard, a Phoenix, Ariz.-based…

How can I reuse or recycle old aftershave/cologne?

Comments Off on How can I reuse or recycle old aftershave/cologne?

We’ve had an email from Bala: Can an aftershave which is nearly 3 years old be used as a car freshner?? This sent me down two research routes: 1) do aftershaves/colognes/perfumes expire? and 2) how to make a car air freshener. In answer to the first question, general not: they might lose their top notes or the scent distort in other ways after around five years but otherwise the alcohol will preserve it pretty well, especially if the bottle is pretty full (so there has been less exposure to the air). Some might separate slightly but at three years old, it should be fine. As for making the freshner, Planet Green suggests a dangly scrap fabric/scrap cardboard/fabric sandwich , but I worry about the suggestion to soak the fabric with the scent – I would have though a few spritzes, refreshed regularly, would probably suffice in a closed car (a little scent goes a long way!). Anyone got any ideas for making other types of freshner? Or any other ideas for reusing or recycling old aftershave/cologne?

Comments Off on Consumers "Too Lazy" to Switch Utilities. So Who’s Going to Insulate Their Attic?

Oh dear. Recent headlines do not speak very highly of the British public’s willingness to cut carbon emissions, or even save money. Despite near constant outcries about rising energy costs, it was reported recently that a full 10% of Brits are simply too lazy to insulate their homes . Now, as Business Green Reports, a Government minister has declared consumers are even too lazy to shop around for alternate energy suppliers , a pra… Read the full story on TreeHugger

Comments Off on How to Prevent Blossom End Rot in Tomatoes (Video)

Image credit: KLRU I mentioned in my Lazivore Manifesto that it is important, when gardening, to cut yourself some slack when you fail. I even suggested that it is OK to give up and grow something easier. (It’s a theme also discussed over at Planet Green in Organic Gardening 101: Be OK With Failure .) But sometimes failure hurts too much—especially when those promising looking green tomatoes… Read the full story on TreeHugger
