Being Green - A Modern Problem


old fashioned familyI seen this on Facebook today and it was just too good not to share.  Although I'm a little too young to remember a few of these, it does make some excellent points.
 
Being Green
Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the older woman, that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment.  The woman apologized and explained, "We didn't have this green thing back in my earlier days."  The young clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations."

DIY How to Build a Cattle Panel Greenhouse

Here's an awesome DIY cattle panel greenhouse design from Alan (aka TexasPrepper2) at HomesteadAdvisor.com.  It appears to be simple enough for a single person to construct in less than a day and yet is sturdy, functional, and even looks great.  With just a  quick estimation, this greenhouse would cost about $120 to build with all new materials.  And if you have extra lumber, nails, screws, etc lying around you could probably build this for next to nothing.

Heating an Organic Greenhouse with Used Cooking Oil

 

 
An organic farm in Freeport Maine has engineered and adopted a clever idea of using used cooking oil from local restaurants to heat his large greenhouses in the winter time. It's an idea that should go viral as it saves the local restaurants from paying to have their used cooking oil taken away, and the organic farm acquires a nearly free heating source for its greenhouses that is much more environmentally and economically friendly than its alternatives.
