Three years ago (oh my how time flies!!) as I approached my 46th birthday, I wrote all about how I was going to get a composter and start composting at home. Well as it turned out, I never got that composter. Not sure if it was the price or space needed in my kitchen or what - but it never happened. So I needed to find another way to make sure my food scraps were not ending up in a landfill taking up space and creating potent methane gas.

If someone ever told you that a handful of people can’t make a difference, he or she hasn’t met the five hardworking moms who started the Food and Tray Waste Composting Pilot in District 3 schools on the Upper West Side of New York City. What began with the moms’ concern for making their own children’s schools more environmentally sustainable has evolved into a citywide effort to reduce waste and educate future generations.

With the winter season behind us (oh, yeah!), it’s time to get our minds and bodies ready for Spring. That means curing dry skin, which includes those yucky dead layers on our lips (yes, they are there!). The best therapy? A wonderful lip balm.

The weather is getting warmer, the flowers are blooming and everything is coming out of hibernation! It's Springtime! And is there ever a better time to throw a breezy, outdoor party?

It’s all about love! Environmental stewardship and green living start within, deep in the core of our heart and soul. Embracing green living through honoring Mother Earth begins by first embracing self-love of your mind, body and spirit. In today’s hectic, faced-paced world, we often neglect self-care practices that feed and nurture our mind, body, and spirit. Distractions, deadlines, commitments, and complications often undermine our best intentions to create a balanced life.

Achoo! Achoo! Do you find yourself sneezing all day at work? Do you blame it on your allergies, or an a looming cold? But what if the real culprit is actually your working environment?

Matt Damon may not have starred in the movie Water World, (which I’m sure is something he’s happy about), but he is trying to address the world's water shortage! Matt Damon co-founded a charitable organization called Water.org with Gary White of WaterPartners. The goal of Water.org is to try and solve the global water and sanitation crisis. Nearly two billion people do not have access to clean water and toilets. And 4,000 children die every day from this solvable issue.

When was the last time you bought a brand new designer bag or the newest, most buzzed about electronic invention? How much did that cost you? $800? $1,000? MORE? Well, it’s time that you stopped spending your life’s savings on brand new items, and discovered the art of sharing, borrowing and swapping. Haven’t you heard?? It’s the hot, new trend!

The winter season in the northeast (where I hibernate) doesn’t seem to want to end. Despite the arrival of ‘Spring’ on our calendars (March 20th), temps have barely crept over the 40 degree mark and we’re still days away from tucking our long down coats into storage bins.
