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.  Happy Earth Day

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.

All sewn up

Hi Renee,

Do you know a place that re-uses fabric from sewing projects?  Some may be several yards, usable for making an outfit, others are scraps from projects.  This would be most helpful for my closet cleaning!

Thanks.

Recycle this!

Dear Renee - 

What is the best way to get involved and have an impact on what the city of Indianapolis decides regarding recycling?

I find it ironic to see all of the new billboards around town noting the problem when the solutions haven’t seemed to follow.

Thanks!

Have a seat

I have several expired car seats that can no longer be used. These things are huge and I feel bad dumping them in the garbage, but I can’t find any information about recycling them. Any ideas? Thanks!
