    I was reading about synthetic nitrogen today and learned a lot of things  : In short, we know that plants need nitrogen to thrive.

    My baby was famished so spent boob - time researching electric cars. Would I get one? Maybe.

We DO need a minimum amount of protein (around 15%) in our diets to function otherwise we start craving it. Although they are many plan based proteins, several scientists studying protein requirements in the 19...

    One more day until the start of the EcoChallenge ! I know you all have busy lives, so no pressure to do anything drastic, or bring in lots of points. I am looking forward to see what kind of changes (big or small) this brings into my own life, and hopefully that's what it can be for you too !
