There are such things as trash-free homes, but it takes a lot of planning and scheming with some extra purchases in the beginning to make it possible. It really does cut down on costs and environmental impact in the long run, but until you’re used to it, it’s sort of a pain.

Hmmm, is it me, or does everything seem to get smarter and smarter these days? After all, the human body is “electric” in a sense, where it is made up of atoms, electrons, protons, and neutrons, and happens to be a driving force behind the modern innovation that we find in a myriad of sensors, smartphones, wearables, and consumer products, to say the least.

How many trash bags do you go through in a week? It’s not really something you give much thought to since you know when something is used up you stick it in a bag and put that bag in a bin, never to be thought of again.

We as a society are absolutely fascinated by caffeine. Coffee is the nectar on which we live, and it gives us the extra pep in our step that we need to face each task of the day.

However, for those who wake early enough, preparing coffee from start to finish is a time to collect your thoughts and prepare for the day.
When you’re hosting a get-together, you want to be the entertainer with an unlimited supply of things to eat and drink while maintaining a calm environment. If you have the ambiance and snacks down, there is one item you’re likely to be out of frequently, and that would be ice.

Have you ever noticed how much stuff you throw away in a week? It’s a pretty massive bummer when you think about how much could be recycled but isn’t, and how many tons of trash are stuffed in a landfill somewhere, never to break down properly because it’s so far down that air can’t reach or is in a bag.
