What It Takes to Make Your Business Green {Guest Post}

Make Your Business Green


Businesses are going the green way. Up until recently “Tree-hugging” was considered the domain of environmental activists but it has now wooed its way into the hearts of those who run multi-national conglomerates as well as the small business owner. As global climate changes and environmental issues take center stage in our rapidly changing world, consumers have taken it upon themselves to be responsible world citizens and conscious buyers of green products. And in this scenario, businesses are left with little choice but to follow the “green” road.

Woolzies Wool Dryer Balls {Review}

Cut Dryer Costs and Time with Woolzies Wool Dryer Balls


http://woolzies.com/
Woolzies are wool dryer balls made by Soft By Nature, Inc., a company that treasures our earth and has developed all-natural eco-friendly products. Their dryer balls are 100% wool and last for 1,000 loads of laundry! These Woolzies dryer balls are made in Nepal and provide a steady source of income to the needy women of the developing nation.


What makes all-wool dryer balls so wonderful is that they are 100% natural and they cut down on drying time. Dryer balls help your clothes dry faster because they warm up themselves and then are able to transfer the heat to the clothes as they move around in the dryer. Wool dryer balls are also great for cloth diapers, which can often take a long time to dry! In fact, some of our loads of laundry that used to take two dryer cycles to dry, now only take one cycle with the wool dryer balls!

Consistent Cooling: Duct Versus Ductless Air Conditioners


Consistent Cooling: Duct Versus Ductless Air Conditioners


Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot


Heating has long been considered to be a necessity in all but the warmest climates. By contrast, for many decades, air conditioning was a luxury reserved only for the super rich, if it was available at all. Box fans, cool drinks and cold showers were expected to suffice when the mercury climbed.

These days, air conditioners are a must-have addition to any new home. In addition, many older homes are being retrofitted with central air conditioning systems. One of the first decisions associated with installing central air conditioning in your home is deciding between a duct and ductless system. Each system has its merits and its disadvantages....

Getting a Masters Degree Online

Getting a Masters Degree Online in Geographic Information Systems

 For today's students, one of the primary goals is to obtain a degree in a cost-effective and efficient manner. These students don't want to spend years going after a degree that could have been had in little more than a year.

School is just too expensive, and more students are ready to get out into the world to make some money. This is especially true of those people who are currently pursuing geographic information systems (GIS) degrees.

The good news is that today, students can get a masters in GIS relatively quickly from well-respected colleges. USC is a good example of a well-respected school that's now offering a GIS degree to students who are willing to get things done quickly. What's more interesting? The school's offering this program entirely online.

Yummi Pouch Refillable Squeeze Pouches {Review}

Yummi Pouch Refillable Pouches


Pouch foods in general are so popular because they're not messy and they're easy to take on the go!

However, the problem with most pouch foods that you purchase in the grocery store is that the pouches are used one time and are then trashed. That's why Yummi Pouch has created a reusable refillable pouch that can be washed and reused!

We absolutely love our Yummi Pouches and use them nearly every day! They are a great way to send homemade applesauce with my kindergartner to school. I know that it won't spill in his lunch and is a great way to reduce our waste. Plus it's a way to get him to eat fruits at school!

Yummi Pouches are dishwasher safe, freezer safe, BPA-free, and phthalate-free, making them a safe choice for you and your family. You can read more about the Yummi Pouch here.


Read on to hear more about the Yummi Pouch reusable pouches and to learn more about our experience using these great refillable squeezey pouches!
