Should plastic bags be a thing of the past?
Carolina Lewiston April 23, 2014 at 10:40 am
Costco items are bulky and heavy. They cannot fit in plastic bags without ripping instantly. I doRead More not need to carry reusable bags with me. There are plenty of "recycle your plastic bags here" bins that can be used. Its another way for stores to make money by charging you for reusable bags and soon plastic bags. Ikea does the same thing and forces you to buy their blue bags.

OMG I can't believe this; I just saw a plastic bag, float across my office window. It mocked me forRead More a few seconds, as it nonchalantly hovered in midair, taunting me with its bag like features. And just as it came, it quickly vanished from my view. It’s probably hovering its way.... to its next victim.

CAPICU, was that bag mostly white with 2 loop holes for convenient carry- ability? If so, it justRead More blew by my window now. This could be the first signs of a zombie-like outbreak. I wish I had shared the rage and anger for plastic shopping bags like others here did. I feel any life lost during the coming attack of the plastics bags rest on my shoulders now. God forgive me. God forgive me!

I pick up styrofoam cups In The wetlands along Kettletown road all the time. People throw themRead More and beer cans, nip bottles, soda cans, and McDonalds bags there regularly. In the woods, their personal dumping grounds. No one picks them up. I do. People honk their horns when I'm out there, but no one helps. What gives?

Nobody bothers to pick up trash across from their homes. Maybe they're embarrassed to be seenRead More picking up trash, but nobody does it. George's Hill Road is also littered with ignorant people's trash. Can't people take the time to pick it up?

Sure I'd use my own mug or a paper disposable cup if they offered it through the coffee shops. HowRead More about 5 cents off the cost of a cup of coffee if you bring your own mug?? Supermarkets do it if you bring your own shopping bag why not coffee shops?? Lord knows we all love our coffee! Ok, I do anyway. :)

I've found Wednesday and Thursdays to be good days in my area. Saturdays and Sundays were alwaysRead More slow for me.

And yes, I take my signs down immediately after my garage sale.

I like going out to yard sales more than holding them although we do at least twice a year. MyRead More boyfriend is great at finding deals (more expensive items) and then flipping them, that's pretty awesome! I enjoy the early mornings out together, coffee, meeting new people and sometimes coming across something really cool, like my angel bell. I've never heard of bookoo.com Stephanie P, gonna look into that for selling : ) thanks!
Lotion Bars and Body Butter is available now.

Come on people get a grip! The product is NOT MADE FOR CONSUMPTION, even though the article seems toRead More have confused most of you. It’s just a healthier alternative for children, free of toxins.

Don't know about this BRAND - but health food stores sell coconut butter, which is very tasty onRead More toast. Some of you "commenters" need to check facts...

what I find missing are the wineries that have installed electrical consumption reducing items.Read More also we have the lowest grape per acre production - which is one of the major reasons it is not profitable for wineries to "sustain - existence" economically here.

without subsidizing their business through creative ideas - "parties etc....

I hope they can bring a few cost estimates to the meeting. The costs for kilowatt of wind is $1000Read More per kilowatt. 1000kilowatts per megawatt =$1,000,000 per Megawatt x 4=$4,000,000 for the windmills alone. With the yearly payback costs on the bonds for the windmills alone far exceeding any current or future incremental power costs. The solar per KW is 25-50% more then wind. For all the mayors dreams that's the real reality. If people want an eco experiance walk Moores woods and see nature as it is, not as created by people, A simple cleaning of Clarks Beach and open access would show nature naturally. The way it's been for 1,000,000 years.

Perhaps getting approvals from the town should be the first step in this Green Dream
