First of all, I’m back! Haven’t posted anything in a while, but I thought it important to share this. I know Miss Lilian has been writing about the vegetarian transition, being kind enough to offer recipes and all. I’ll try to support her blog by posting more resources here. Just bear with me, I have about 395726395 things to do every day. Thanks for your patience!

Better start buying some fruit juices...

Thank you to everyone who participated. As a prize, everyone is going to be able to bring roller skates on Friday! Congratulations. Here are some pictures from our recycling day:

Ventilate Your Home Regularly

Indoor air pollution affects all enclosed spaces. This can be caused by a ventilation system tat does not remove stale air properly, by a faulty gas stove or heater, or by the improper use of products that require a a high degree of air circulation to dissipate pollutants, such as paints, varnishes, and household cleaners. Some pollutants, such as mites an molds, are of natural origin.


On average, we spend 80% of our lives in buildings. The quality of the air indoors can therefore have a major effect on our health. To circulate the air and remove pollutants, ventilate your indoor space regularly and generously, even in winter

Ventilate!

Boil Only as Much Water as You Need

Whether you use an electric kettle or a saucepan, heating water uses energy. There is no point in doubling the energy you use, for no purpose. Boil only what is necessary. A study found that if all the US did this for just one day, the energy saved could power all the country’s streetlights through the following night.

When you boil water for coffee or a hot drink, try to boil only what you need, or pour the surplus into a thermos flask to keep the water very hot until you need it

Watch what you boil!
