Green living: Save Our Earth By Living Green

Making the Case for Greener Living

Living green often seems like an extreme practice. After all, it can be very inconvenient. And everyone has watched one or two TLC specials featuring cooky-looking folks who make salads out of greens that they find at the local park, or go to amazingly creative (and off-putting) lengths to reduce the water used for toilets and showers. And everyone knows someone who takes healthy and sustainable living to an extreme and has a kitchen stocked solely with plant-based protein powder and chia seeds.

However, “going green” has also gained a lot of popularity in the last couple decades. Gradually, we’re learning that new technology doesn’t always have the answers that we need. Sometimes, the best way to move forward is to take a step that looks, at first, like a step backwards in time. More »

Plastic and the Pacific Garbage Patch

Most oceanographers estimate that humans have only seen about 95% of the ocean. Our oceans teem with life and mysteries that we haven’t yet explored. What’s a narwhal’s horn for? What is that lost city near Japan? What’s the milky sea phenomenon?

Alternative Currencies in the World

While living green is extremely important another important piece of all of our lives is the “green” that helps us afford and take care of the world we live in. When we think of currency, we tend to think of paper bills and a handful of metal coins (which, as this article points out, is an oversimplification). Now, with the growth and rise of globalization, you could just as easily imagine currency as a few numbers on a computer that are constantly shifting over a global marketplace as goods and services are able to move more freely from country to country, due to incredible advances in technology that bring the world closer to each other. However, not all currency fits into this very specific mold. Indeed, there are dozens of other examples of currency that exist around the world, in one way or another. Some of these examples have been here for thousands of years, while others are mutual to this new age. Here are some alternative currencies that are still used around the world…

This is done, perhaps casually, by nearly every culture on the planet, and is the most common way that we bypass using a mainstream currency to purchase the things that we need. More »
