Welcome to the first edition of Tuesday’s Broccoli Soup (TBS). It’s going to be a regular feature of permablogger and it’ll incorporate everything interesting and worth mentioning that happened in the world of permaculture during the course of the previous week.
- US Congress spent at least $860,000 between April 2009 and March 2010 on bottled water alone. Wow! That averages to about $2,000 per member per year. But the costs for purchasing bottled watter are just the tip of the iceberg. Every year the fees for disposing empty bottles cost governments at least $42 million! And what’s more 44% of bottled water is sourced from the tap.
- On the other hand, apparently New York City is going green. In 2010 solar power installations more than doubled in the Big Apple.
- While I’m at it, if you’re into solar power, this mobile phone might be for you. I just don’t see how useful solar powered mobile phone really is…
- You’ve no excuse not to compost. Watch this video to see how you can do it even indoors. On second thought, I’ve been composting with worms indoors for years now. More on that some other time.
- While you’re at it, why not compost your shoes as well, if you’ve grown tired of them
- If you’re somewhat impatient (not something I would advise if you’re a gardener), here are some quick growing vegetables for you.
Yesterday was Valentine’s day. I hope you spent it with your loved ones and the way you like it. Remember, it’s not important how much it costs, it’s the thought that counts.
