A Greener Indiana

Everybody can do something to make a greener Indiana

 

Seeking serenity on a budget has always meant a 45 minute to 1 hour and 15 trip to a state park or the Hoosier National Forest.  It seems those in Beverly Hills are just learning how glamourous camping can really be...for your wallet.

Glamping is not all smores with champagne "champs".  Here is my list to make camping glamourous

1.  Arranging Floral and Fauna at the camping site.  Centerpieces add an elegant touch to an all ready natural scene.

2.  Sandbar pedicures and Mud masks.  Get up early and do a beauty ritual at the beach.  Stretch and do some Yoga.

3.  Retail Therapy:  Shop the Camp Store

4.  Choose a wishing rock, read/write a ode or a poem 

5.  Pass danty finger food on a silver tray

6.  Bring  blankets and pillows to lounge upon

7.  Okay now you can have the "champs" around the camp fire while painting your toenails.

8.  Because ice is glamourous while camping have a slushy cocktail and a sinus eye ice pack while relaxing at camp.

9.  Preplan the party with a Citronella Geranium Nosegay or posy to keep the bugs away.

10.  Close the night with a sunset candle light vigil

 

Here is a toast to more camping, canoeing, hiking and biking this spring and summer.

Wish I could just glamp, but I always turn it into a research jaunt, always dragging along my bird books, tree books, insect books, weed book, flower book, etc. binoculars, mag glass, measuring tape....you get the picture, oh well it must be the scientist in me.

What percentage is recycled?

Hey Renee,

A friend — one of those who thinks recycling is bogus — said that he was talking to a friend of his who actually works at a MRF (he didn’t say which one). That friend said that only five percent — yes, five percent — of what arrives [...]

No 6 Styrofoam

Hi Renee,

Do you know where I can recycle clean white Styrofoam? There used to be a company called Createc on Guion Road that would take it but they closed down years ago. I don’t have a whole lot of it, maybe 10 cubic feet but if I cant recycle [...]
