Stuff I Like
I have been talking for a year or so about how I want a green burial when I die, and now it seems to be mainstream enough that Re-Nest is also blogging about it. It's extremely inexpensive, even more eco-friendly than cremation, and my body becomes compost for plants. What could be better? Send me off Little House On The Prairie style please, in a pine box with a cross made of sticks marking my grave. That's all I need and want.
And for the rest of the list...
-Try using a ShamWow for an eco-friendly reusable Swiffer pad.
-Make your own laundry detergent to save a ton of money. I am definitely trying this one! Don't blame me for the abuse of Comic Sans on that webpage though. Yikes.
-I love vintage suitcases. How about making one into a cabinet?
-Oh, this is a good one, and it's LOCAL! Dallas welder and craftsman Joel Hester is taking old car hoods and making them into fantastic coffee tables with an industrial edge. Talk about a conversation starter!
-If it's time to get planting, then how about you start your seeds in a DIY growbox? I had NO idea that Christmas lights can be used for this. So awesome.
-Or just build yourself a greenhouse from old windows. Not only is it eco-friendly, but it's super cute, too!
-And lastly, I want a claw-foot tub-turned-sofa!
