8 Easy Tips for Using Less Plastic
Artist Profile: Erick Wolfmeyer
Erick Wolfmeyer would be the first to tell you he can barely stitch a button on a shirt, but that hasn’t stopped him from making quilting into a fierce fine art. For the past twenty years, he has been creating abstract works of fabric art. His goal is simple—envisioning quilts to inspire and endure for generations. He hopes his work offers his audience a “big experience, to lead them to something deep within, to help connect or reconnect them to something greater than themselves.”
The two fundamentals to all of Erick’s quilts—a commitment to preserve the tradition of hand quilting and a passion for color composition. Erick loves color, playing around with it, bending and shaping its tones and values. Quilts are a canvas that, for him, offer infinite possibilities.

Carbon Offset Can Mitigate Climate Change
Imagine a world where every individual, firm, company, corporate body, and governmental agency can reduce their carbon footprint no matter the business type! Carbon offsets usually directly support community-driven projects that protect and restore critical forests around the world. These forests, in turn, conserve biodiversity, sustain livelihoods for millions of people, help communities around the world build resilience to climate change, absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and help mitigate climate change globally.
Just invest more in carbon offset projects. They are practical and effective ways to address climate change and encourage the growth of renewable energy. By supporting carbon offset, you contribute to a more sustainable future by counterbalancing your personal carbon emissions, aka: "carbon footprint."

Vegan Cyclist: What To Eat When Training
The best part about being a plant-based cyclist? Knowing that you’re treating mind, body, and planet well while remaining competitive. However, as a vegan athlete, you may not know exactly what to eat when training, or which foods offer incredible nutrition for long days out on the road.
The connection between performance and diet is, at this point, undisputed. Eating better aids muscle recovery, in turn getting you back on the road fitter, stronger, and feeling ready to spin the pedals again. So, it should come as no surprise that legions of cyclists are becoming vegan out of concern for bodily health, as plant-based diets are high in antioxidants and reduce inflammation. Food can be both a fuel source and medicine.

How to Force Spring-Flowering Branches
On a sunny day, when the air temperature is above freezing, cut a few small branches from the tree(s) you have selected. Choose limbs that have an abundance of visible flower buds and cut them 1-3 feet long. Cut off with sharp pruning shears or a knife, so neither the tree nor the branches will be harmed, then cut a 1-inch slit into the bottom of the branch so it can easily absorb water and remove any smaller branches 6-inches from the bottom.
