I am all for not using a car. I love to walk and in an area that makes room for safe bike riding, this is another great alternative to gas guzzling cars. It's a great partner to improving eating habits and getting healthier.

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, February 6, 2014 3:11 PM

A wonderful alternative to driving especially when the roads are in good shape and bike paths are available.

Dumpster-diving & Other Less Obvious Green Resolutions. ~ Katie Wilkins | Vintage Living Today For A Future Tormorrow | Scoop.it
If we see someone litter, there’s a chance we might curse at them in a fit of rage. We secretly judge the lady in front of us at the shop who’s choosing to use a plastic bag. And we judge ourselves when we look at the pile of apple products charging over there in the kitchen. So, to continue our constant criticism of the ne’er-do-well’s (ourselves included) who sometimes aren’t as green as they should be, let’s add some extra-special green resolutions to our list.

Along with recipes for six different cream soups (Cream of Cauliflower Soup, Duchess Soup, Cream of Spinach Soup, Chicken Cream Soup with Noodles, Cream of Crab Soup, and Bean Consomme; click the image to get a large legible scan with all the recipes), the vintage magazine has additional tips on cream soups.
