    Whether we are climate change activists or skeptics, we can all agree that we should all be doing our part to leave our Earth in the best condition possible. Sustainability isn’t always the easiest thing to accomplish considering our consumerist lifestyle in the U.S., but we’ve come up with four things that can really have an impressive impact and make big changes!


    Composting allows you to literally turn your trash into treasure! It may be tough to make the decision and get started, but it’s worth it! Your garden will also thank you (see  #2). Soil is one of the most important ingredients you need for a productive garden. In order to have a lush garden that grows big, juicy vegetables, you need lots of nutrients in the soil. And this is where composting comes in. Compost doesn’t replace your soil but instead acts as a natural fertilizer for it, making it worth the planning and effort!

    The first thing you will want to figure out is the location of your bin.  Placing the bin adjacent to or actually in your garden will save some time and labor when it’s time to apply your finished product. One cubic yard of compost can weigh up to a ton! Make sure you put the compost pile on the actual soil as well!  You’ll want the bugs and earthworms to work their way into the composting material.  If you put the compost pile on a concrete pad, it’ll be much more difficult because the compost will be cut off from the ecosystem.

    Begin by adding equal parts of “brown” waste and “green” waste to your compost bin. “Green” waste includes fruits and vegetables and “brown” waste can be items like wood shavings, dry leaves, or even old newspapers. Maintaining a balance between the two is important is because “brown” materials are rich in carbon, feeding the organisms that break down the scraps and “green” materials supply nitrogen, which is the key for building the cell structure of your new soil. Keep in mind your compost will also need to “breathe”. It will need oxygen and some air flow to break down the waste into usable compost. –Ready Nutriton

    Once the compost looks like soil, it is ready to use! Work it into your garden beds, or sprinkle it on top of your garden! Your garden will thrive! Speaking of gardening…


    America was founded upon an agrarian lifestyle, and farmers were the driving force behind America. Currently, people are trying to find ways to move back to farming in order to grow their own food, be more self-sufficient, and less dependent on the highly-unstable government. In fact, by growing your own food, you cut down on trips to the grocery, thus cutting down on gasoline, carbon emissions and save some money in the process. All around, it’s a wonderful adventure.

    Not only do you get to enjoy the delicious vegetables you grow, but taking care of a garden keeps you in shape! With nearly 75% of men and more than 60% of women who are obese or overweight, it’s important to consider our health in the sustainability equation too. The burden obesity is putting on our already strained healthcare system is not sustainable, and these little changes could end up being big ones in the end!  Not only will your garden produce healthy options, weeding it and doing the work to maintain it will help keep you fit.


    When we started our garden this year, we planted organic heirloom seeds indoors because we live in a colder climate. Starting them in February in a small town also meant planters weren’t available, so we used what we had – empty bean cans, plastic containers, and empty aluminum cans were our go-to. And, as an added benefit, all of these things can still be recycled after you transplant your seedlings!  My husband simply drilled holes in the bottom of the trash (obviously glass wasn’t an option) and we planted away!  All of those “pots” saved us a bunch of money, did double duty, and have already been recycled.

    Here are some other ways you can re-purpose your trash and have zero waste in your kitchen:

    Another trick for those clothes your kids ruin beyond repair or stain so bad a thrift store won’t even take them is to make them into rags or reusable shopping bags.

    Get inventive with your trash, especially if you’re on a budget! Your wallet and the Earth will thank you!


    Did you know that if a household started conserving water, you can reduce your in-home water use by 35%? This means the average household, which uses 130,000 gallons per year, could save 44,000 gallons of water per year. Learning ways to practice the art of conserving water now, will help you make the most of your water sources.

    A small drip from a worn faucet washer can waste 20 gallons of water per day. Larger leaks can waste hundreds of gallons. Check for leaks in hoses as well as this also wastes large amounts of water.

    Another simple way to cut down on water use is to turn off the shower after soaping up, then turn it back on to rinse. A four-minute shower uses approximately 20 to 40 gallons of water!

    With these simple sustainable changes, you could make a big impact on the Earth and on your bank account! What are your ideas for reusing trash or conserving water? Let us know in the comments!

          • Panther it seems that no one else is having an issue, but like you I’m having a problem even getting SHTFPlan to come up and its always 3 or 4 days behind and there seems to be no comments on many articles. Trekker Out

        • When running some errands (in Summer heat) this morning, I saw literally-retarded (or whatever I am supposed to call it) people at a community center, working in a community garden of theirs.

          Fully functioning (?) unionist Caucasians will physically destroy private workmanship and the means of production.

          Which is most useful?

      2. Genius, I have to agree. Morons having future morons. something has to give somewhere.

        • Planned Parenthood is working on that. Remember PP was established to help control the black birth rate. Funny how Liberals never mention that.

      3. People FAIL to realize that the more people there are the more food will cost and housing and everything else. Not to mention the less places to getaway there will be and everything available will be full of people. The more nuke plants, pollution, resource depletion of every kind, less wildlife, much lower quality of life, more govt., lower wages, the list goes on forever! Fuckin idiots only think of themselves and the NOW! Forget yer grandkids, they will suffer like a motherfooker! But hey, you fullfilled your selfish shortsighted, dimwitted wants!

        • And don’t forget to oppose abortion! God knows we need millions and millions more people to feed and house in prisons and create crime up the wazoo! People act like they WANT to end the world ASAP! Tell ya what, YOU pay for all the bastards and reimburse everyone for the crimes and welfare etc. ok? If you can’t support yer kid you should be MANDATED to an abortion and sterilization. Oh but thats so mean? You don’t know what mean is! Mean is putting these poor spawn through the biggest hell you can create for them! It isn’t rocket science, it’s REALITY!

      4. I use rain water to flush my toilets and well water for everything else. I doubt that we use more than 30 gallons of well water per day. You can’t get much more frugal than that.

      5. I do manage to spread/pile (to let it cool first) chicken shit from the coop to spread onto the garden during the off season. I’ve tried grass clippings but they have combusted a couple of times during the summer and I don’t need no fires.

      6. have used animal fat with a piece of jute twine to make a candle in a old baby food jar burned for a couple hours every nite for five days. use old walmart bags for lunch bags then trash good for cleaning up dog shit too. got a three foot tall compost pile in the back corner grass clippings wood chips and rabbit shit go in it. . dont get hot though so no hurries for compost. water from central air condenser is my future project gonna pipe it into the garden pumps out probably a gallon every 45 mins or so. right now it just dumps it on the ground. figure i can keep the soil in my three raised beds moist consistently with the water given off the central air unit which im running anyway. gotta make full use of what you have. im the cheapest bastard you will ever find always looking to save a buck or make a buck.

      7. I started this spring at my new place with a rocky, clay containing patch of ground for a garden. Tilled the heck out of it, removed/screened out rocks,and hundreds of dollars of peat moss, a little gypsum for the clay, garden soil, and a whole lot of mushroom compost later, I’m proud to look out at the lush green goodness.The yard is a hill, I left the rows at somewhat of a slope so that way I can water one plant and the water flows down each row watering all the plants in that row.’Mators, squash, many kinds of lettuce, watermelons,bell peppers, hot peppers, herbs, corn outside the fence till the elk ate it, ( I knew better) , hot peppers, green beans, beets, ect. fill the garden space. If your soil/climate makes it hard to grow something, change it. I started in early spring with a crappy patch of soil,worked it for three months as time allowed, and this first year garden here is blowing up !

      8. Don’t forget who did 9/11:
        Wikispooks.com 9/11 israel did it.
        DON’T FORGET!
