Declining Forests

I don’t know what hurts me more the fact that we are wasteful, or the fact that we are killing our trees for our own personal use. Everyday we use the trees for paper, toilet paper, homes, furniture and other material things. Killing the trees effects the animals, water, air and humans. What are we doing to stop this? There are other alternatives for humans to live a comfortable life without hurting the environment. I read this article about the forests declining globally and it breaks my heart to see the earth being destroyed by us.

halal-turkey-rice-white-sauce-recipe

This was my first leftover meal I prepared since Thanksgiving which was on a Friday. It took no more than 25 minutes to prepare. It’s healthy, light and delicious; I managed to add just a touch of sour cream to compliment the dish. I prepared 3 more dishes with the Turkey leftovers. My favorite dish is the Turkey avocado enchilada. This meal is rich with flavors, creamy and healthy. You can use organic ingredients or a different ingredient for your dish. It saves me time in the kitchen ,reduces the usage of gas and electricity. If I cook enough food that will last for 3 days my light and gas will be reduced to at least $5 bucks a month. Avocado-Enchiladas

2nd Month of Air Drying My Hair

Good morning Professor and Peers,

I took the liberty of washing my hair on Saturday and letting it air dry for one day. I applied my conditioners,moisturizers and trimmed the ends of my hair. I find that letting my hair air dry is cheaper and reduces heat damage to my hair. My hair is healthier, longer and stronger. My next wash will be this weekend November 19th and I will let it air dry. It cuts back on power usage, my bill is $35 bucks cheaper. I had no idea that blow drying my hair every weekend can be costly.

Turning Beer Wastewater into Energy Storage Benefits Breweries, Battery Manufacturers Read more:

Beer wastewater can be converted to materials needed to make energy storage cells — a development that researchers say could be a “win-win” for breweries and battery manufacturers.

University of Colorado Boulder engineers have developed a process that uses a biological organism cultivated in brewery wastewater to create the carbon-based materials used in energy storage. Companies are using left over beer and converting it into energy; this will help beer companies leave less of a carbon print. It helps to cut back on water and energy. More and more companies find this method to be useful and it helps them to save money.
