    I love the comments made in this article. I agree with the author when she states that people have to look at the solar panels as part of the system on the building and not as something added on.

TLC Home "50 Ways to Never Waste Food Again" - 2 views

  •  
    Great tips on how to cut down food waste. Cutting food waste how it helps you make yummy food in the kitchen. The last one is important to read.
  •  
    Original: "Use it up, wear it out, make do, or do without" is a favorite adage in both frugal and green circles, and it is something I strive to live by. One of the best ways to "use it up" is to think differently about our food and ways to avoid wasting it. Lloyd wrote a great post a while back about the statistics for how much food we waste in the U.S., and the numbers are, frankly, appalling. On average, we waste 14% of our food purchases per year, and the average American family throws out over $600 of fruit per year. Paraphrase: Half the loaf of bread goes stale and the grapes aren't as fresh. With an attitude to stop waste and some creativity, you can create new things with your food before it actually goes bad. Left over roasted vegetable can be made into soup and leftover rice can be added into oatmeal the next morning. There are many more ways to reduce waste in your home.
