Do you like your home or car to smell like an Ocean Breeze, an Autumn Sunset or a Fresh Baked Birthday Cake? If so, you’re probably like millions of others who use air fresheners.

It’s not too late to plot a small veggie garden, grow your favorite herbs or get a pumpkin patch ready for Halloween. Growing your own food can be personally rewarding and save you money but it also does wonders for the environment. Homegrown food requires very little energy or waste to produce and deliver – no excess packaging, shipping in large trucks or gas guzzled to get to the store and pick it up.

Here’s a cute treat for your tweet tweets (ok, we admit that was a stretch): Etsy shop owner DeeLux Designs has come up with the perfect way to recycle an old liquor bottle – into a hummingbird feeder !  If you like showing off your alcoholism (kidding!) or just want a fun conversation piece for your backyard gatherings this summer, take advantage of a recycled bottle.  Not to mention hummingbird-safe by not using a ball-bearing in the feeder tip to protect the hummingbird’s tongue. Thanks to Melissa Adelman for suggesting this tip

Do you have an ache this big?  For those of us who take medication to help soothe the pain, here’s something interesting to keep in mind: a dose that is prescribed to you or directed on the bottle is not just a suggestion – it’s what your body will take in.  Our bodies only use a fraction of any drug we take and the rest goes through our system and out with our body waste which is then flushed into the water system.  Pharmaceuticals in this water seriously affect ecosystems, and not in the right way. So for your own sake and that of the water supply, don’t take more medication than you need.

Last week was the National Bike to Work Week, with last Friday marking the end as National Bike to Work Day.  The event started in 1956, but has gained popularity, resulting in over hundreds of thousands of folks biking to work this year – a pat on the back if you were one of ‘em!  If you missed the hype, it’s not too late.  In fact the best time to try to spark you and a friend’s interest in biking is right now, during the Unofficial Bike to Work Week (now happening for the next 51 weeks!). The Huffington Post did a great article spotlighting 8 excuses people have not to bike to work , with answers and tips for each one and encouragment to explore some carbon-free commuting.  Have a safe ride!
