Why I Became a Freegan | Environment on GOOD

Why I Became a Freegan | Environment on GOOD | Road Tripping | Scoop.it
What is an apple? In your kitchen, it’s food, nourishment. At the market, it’s currency, a player in transactions.

 

Dangling from a tree or baked into a pie, it’s part of our cultural identity, an axis for uniting families and friends around the bounty of the harvest. But what about when it’s sitting under three layers of thick black plastic, in a tower of bulging garbage bags on the curb, waiting for the metallic teeth of the nightly garbage truck? How do we regard this resource that holds such cultural, economic and environmental value when it’s suffocating beneath plastic, tossed away?

Sharla Shults's insight:

When I first started reading this article, I thought YUK! Then, as I read on, I realized it only confirmed what I have been thinking and conversing with my husband lately, "There is too much waste in America!" Not too keen on dumpster diving but sure wish the awareness of all the edible food tossed in the trash could be channeled in a new direction other than simply decaying in a garbage can.

10 best free bar snacks in the U.S. | Road Tripping | Scoop.it

SEE AMERICA | THE AMERICAN GUIDE

SEE AMERICA | THE AMERICAN GUIDE | Road Tripping | Scoop.it

THE AMERICAN GUIDE is a revival of the Depression-era guidebook series by the same name. It’s a travel project to keep a state by state record of an America coming out of the Great Recession and beyond: to document people and places both pretty and hard because, all things being equal, that’s what makes America, America.

Gormet Chocolate Tour sounds fantastic! Two drawbacks for me: It is in San Francisco and we are in Georgia; it requires a 3-hour walking tour. Okay for me but not for hubby! :-( Are you up to it? Go for me and send me comments on your culinary walking tour!

Awakenings: Kilroy Was Here!

Awakenings: Kilroy Was Here! | Road Tripping | Scoop.it

A funny little scribbled face became a graffiti icon! It has shown up everywhere worldwide, on buildings, on trains, in school books, with autographs, in diaries, on restroom walls, on sidewalks, in subway tunnels, on rocks, on dumpsters, on invitations, in letters, on tee-shirts, on campaign buttons, you name it and probably Kilroy has been there. It is even engraved on the WWII Memorial in Washington, DC. Of course, that is not as unusual as it sounds which will be discovered later on.

Sharla Shults's insight:
 "The outrageousness of the graffiti was not so much what it said, but where it turned up." ~Charles Paniti, author

The perfect trip isn't just about where; it's about why. So before you book two tickets to the first Caribbean-island resort with complimentary buffet tickets, ask yourself: What exactly does my girl need from a vacation right now?
Sharla Shults's insight:

Laid-back beach escapes, poolside party scenes, and civilization-free hideaways in Utah. "The only thing more relaxing than a poolside daybed next to a desert rock formation is Xanax."
