Cucumber & Green Tea Mojito

It’s that time of year when almost every food item seems to turn green. There’s green beer, green cakes, green eggs, and even green pizza (ewe!). I dunno, it seems that green occurs naturally in so many foods that you don’t really have to dye anything. Sure, a green beer is nice but I am going to stick to this mojito. It’s always green and always tasty!

Vinegar is not only for your fries

goodgirlgonegreen:

Vinegar and water go together like peanut butter and jelly when it comes to cleaning the house.  So I say, why not ditch the nasty chemical and petrolum-based cleaners in  your home and make your own eco-friendly products. Why you ask?

  • There is less packaging waste. You are not buying new bottles over and over again.
  • It is good for your wallet.
  • It is less harmful or actually not harmful at all to humans, animals, and the environment.
  • Homemade natural cleaners always smell better than store bought.

In 1925, the future was owned by pedestriansMore than 85 years ago, Popular Science Monthly magazine imagined what the city of the future, aka 1950, would look like. It’s remarkable green.
A few thoughts:
• The future (in 1950!) is going to be a walker’s paradise! I want to live in that city! • In the future, we’ll all fly around in inflatable dirigibles. What they lack in speed when compared to jets they more than make up for in fuel economy. • Freight tubes will allow goods to be moved from city to city and around to shops with ease and without road-choking emissions.• The terraced cities of the future will have rooftop green space for people to relax, play and learn in.
We didn’t quite get to the green future imagined in 1925 by 1950, but maybe by 2050?
