Photo: Kelly Rossiter I love to cook, but really what I love is cooking for people. It’s a wonderful feeling to sit down with my family and eat a meal I thought about and have prepared for them. It’s even nicer when you use ingredients that you’ve grown yourself . Now, I can’t take all the credit for the eggplant and the cherry tomatoes that went into this recipe, because my daughter has had the yeoman’s duty taking care… Read the full story on TreeHugger

How can I repair/revamp a stained cotton rug?

Comments Off on How can I repair/revamp a stained cotton rug?

I haven’t done a “repair this” for a while but this is something I’ve been wondering about for a few weeks now: how can I repair/revamp a stained rug? It’s a circular cotton rug with off-white (even before the stains!) and pale blue strips, and even though it was pretty cheap, I love it. But it is stained and dirty now and it really needs a good clean and/or a revamp. Since it’s cotton, it can probably handle some tough cleaning love – but it’s also about 2m/6-and-a-half feet in diameter and heavy and awkward to work with. It’s not going to fit in a sink or a washing machine – even cleaning it in a bath will be very awkward because it’s so big. As for revamping it, since it’s cotton, I thought about the possibility of dyeing it – but again, that’ll be an awkward job, and also potentially a very, very messy one. Any suggestions for how can I clean it? Or any advice for dyeing it or revamping it in another way?

If being green was a class in school, the first lesson would probably be, “don’t litter”, right? We all know that it’s not good to litter, but have you ever thought about why?

Comments Off on Green Your Packaging Now — Before They Make You Do It

When we think about greening “print,” we often think about books or marketing communications like direct mail. But what about the world of packaging? Because packaging provides the additional functions of shipment and product protection as well as marketing, it brings a host of unique issues far beyond other types of printed materials.
