Comments Off on All I Own: Swedish Students Photographed With All Their Possessions Show How to Live With less

Can you fit all your belongings in one photograph? Gothemburg-based photographer Sannah Kvist created a collection of photographs entitled “All I Own” where Swedish students were pictured with sculptures made from all their possessions. The result makes us question what we really need for living, if we are buying too much crap , and if it’s true that less stuff leads us to more freedom.

Comments Off on Edmonton, Alberta to Turn 90% of Their Trash into Biofuel

Oh, Canada! What wonderful green things you do! Edmonton, Alberta is about to get the world’s first municipal scale gas to biofuel plant and when it is up and running they’ll be recycling 90% of their non-reusable trash into biofuel. That’s 100,000 tons of garbage diverted from the landfill — which translates into nine million gallons of biofuel. The plant will begin operation in 2011 and the city of Edmonton is hoping that other North American cities will follow in their footsteps.

Comments Off on Pumpkin Pounding: A Halloween Project Kids Can Do Independently

Encouraging my children’s independence is VERY important to me. Not only is it easier for me to parent two small children who can pour their own milk and put on their own coats and carry their own balance bikes up and down the front porch stairs, but it’s also a priority in my parenting that my girls see themselves as capable individuals who can handle challenges and perform the meaningful work of day-to-day living.
