Some Feel Good Ideas

Global Soap Project
Have you ever wondered what becomes of those tiny bars of soap that you leave behind in a motel room? There are, literally, millions of hotel/motel rooms in America. It is standard policy at most hotels to renew the soap supply in each room, each day. The used bar soap and half empty shampoo bottles used to tossed in the trash for their trip to the landfill. There are a great many of those discards now making their way, not to the landfill, but to those in need.
What an excellent idea and kudos to those carrying through the effort to bring cleanliness to the entire world!
Here  is another look at one of the recycling stations that take the used soap and makes it usable again.

Please take a moment of your time and watch these Happy, hopping baby lambs...

Window Socket-Do You Want to be Green?- Champagne Flutes

Window Socket
The window socket is a concept design for a portable solar energy collector. Check out the website!
It is a very cool idea! From reading the comments, I've come to the conclusion it isn't quite ready for marketing at the moment. There are some 'bugs' to work out in a few areas. There are the usual comments from the ones who think they know it all, the ones who have nothing concrete to add to the comments. But there are some comments from people who seem to know what they're talking about who don't think it can work, period.
I say if you have the capacity to think it up, you have the capacity to see your vision through to the end if you believe in it enough.
The article I've linked to will tell you all about this cool little device!

It could be a handy little critter to have around if they can make it work properly.

I love this comment:

Why aren't windows solar panels? or conductors of some sort to give us energy?

Yes, why aren't windows solar panels? That's an excellent question! I'm not knowledgeable enough about physics and things of that nature to know the answer to that question.

Surely they could turn skyscrapers into solar energy collectors, couldn't they?  There are an infinite number of windows the world over!

Do you want to be green?

Here is an article about one way you can decrease your carbon footprint. Have your groceries delivered. You can either listen to the 1:23 long audio or you can read the article at the link.

Champagne flutes made from 100% recycled glass. 

That's all from me today. I'll see if I can't do this more often. I kind of forgot I even had this blog!
