    A new trend in home improvement is to try to create more personalized space that would reflect your preferences and character, rooms full of originality and creativity. Although tastes are so varied , you can bring in your home with minimal financial investment, extraordinary decorative and useful furniture, sofas, tables, shelves made ​​from … wood pallets. Wood pallets have stopped being just simple building material and began to be used independently, in order to achieve originality and also cheap furniture. The possibilities in which you can use wood pallets are endless: you can paint and use them as a coffee table in the living room, sofa for the patio, flower holders or shelves in the kitchen. A set of wheels will only cost $ 3.49, and a pallet can be found at any materials storage for free or for a very small amount. If you can not find a pallet, it can be bought for $ 17 .

Pallet TheaterAnother super smart way to reuse crates. To get cheap cushions, try buying lawn furniture cushions/mattresses. Stack pallets in increasing order to create a “movie theater” feel.

    Growing up and even now I have learned in depth about wild animals and other creatures. But when I learned about farm animals and other commonly eaten animals I was taught “milk comes from cows!” “chickens lay eggs!” very basic facts about how we consume and use them. When really these animals are so interesting and are not just “dumb” or “food” animals. People disconnect themselves from these animals so they feel less guilty when eating them.

    Don’t Buy Microbeads!

    ichbinerica:

    nerdloveandlolz:

    Do you use any cleaners with microbeads? You know, ones like this:

    image

    Microbeads are also in other lotions, sunscreens, and even toothpaste.

    Did you ever think about how many microbeads are in one bottle of things like this? There’s a lot.

    image

    Why is that bad? Because these little microbeads are made of plastic, and they’re of a size designed to go right down your drain. Where do they end up?

    Well, of course — they end up in the oceans, eventually. And they look just like fish eggs to animals, who eat them and eventually die.

    There is a push to ban them, and measures are being debated in New York state and a few others. Johnson and Johnson and a few other manufacturers have promised to “phase out” use of microbeads — but they’ve set up a multi-year time frame for this and that’s way too long for me. And as the soaps are phased out, you can be sure that you’re going to see a lot of them on sale or even clearance and it’s going to be really tempting to buy them. Don’t.

    If you like scrubs, you can use scrubs with natural exfoliants, for example, walnut shells. Honestly, I’m not sure what we can do with those soaps we already own, but for now, don’t buy any more. And be sure to tell your friends.
