Thought About Making Lawns More Pollinator Friendly Part 1

So a while back I had ran across an interesting discussion with Neil deGrasse Tyson and how our vision of the lawn is worse for the environment. The American lawn basically and what qualifies as a good lawn. And we have been wrong on what is really a good lawn. I can’t find the video or what ever it was at the moment but it made me think. And considering I’m in the process of adding lawn care and landscaping to my list of services with my company. Since seeing that video thoughts and ideas in how I could make that part of my company but still make nice looking yards. But also since I’m planing on turn my first house into a special type rental with my company. One thing I working on is actually making as much on my company as green as possible as I think businesses have a responsibility as well when it comes to helping make thing sustainable. It god damn effing sad that most businesses won’t recycle or anything without getting anything back in return.  Anyways so one of my thoughts is more the pollinators like honey bees, bumble bees and so on. We are losing them and will lose all of them if we don’t do something. Anyways while I’m still trying to work on my idea and approach to this service. So the other day in my front yard and as well as my home office for my company I observed a bunch of honey bee on these thing that don’t look so much like flowers But they were landing and gathering off them. So I got video and upload it it to my youtube account on the idea I want to do with my front yard. So here is the video and I will continue this in my next post about it. Thank you for reading.

Save Money by Washing Your Bags

So when I was little we didn’t have a lot of money growing up. We were basically poor so we did what we could to save money. And when my siblings and I got old enough to do choirs washing out bags like Ziploc type of bags to save on money was part of that choir list. So to this day I still do this. More so now then I did before because not only does it help you save money it also helps you safe the environment.

So what do you need to do. I would suggestion hand washing these bastards with good handwashing dish soap. Use hot water as you will need it to kill AS many germs as possible. Both my youngest sister and I think that you probably not keep ones that were used to store meat as from cross contamination. Also if you wash it our out and it leaks water toss it as its no longer good and has holes in it. If it stinks after washing you (if you washed it good) it probably best to say throw it. If you can recycle do so but toss ones not safe to use. This will help you out in the long run. More or less based on my experience. So anyone else got insight feel free to share as I want this place to be a place for free knowledge. I may post more about this later or not. Thanks for reading
