DONT THROW AWAY YOUR THANKSGIVING LEFTOVERS!!! DONATE IT!!
If you have a big Thanksgiving party/feast and you have a lot of leftovers DO NOT THROW THEM AWAY!!! YOU CAN DONATE IT TO PEOPLE IN NEED!!!
Give some to your neighbors or friends
Give some to your church (some churches donate food)
Go around and make plates for the homeless
Contact Copia -> they are a company who donates leftover to people in need
It's the season of giving, so if you are able to give back please do.

Tip 19
- start a “eat me first” bin in your fridge
Sometimes our fridges can become Narnia, and we can’t find that red bell pepper we brought a few weeks ago. Then you start thinking you're are crazy because you swear you brought it, but you can’t find it....this is totally not a personal experience.
Have a bin, drawer, shelf, or a location in your fridge for the foods
Put all the foods that are close to its expiration date or almost going bad in the bin
Every time you cook/eat go thru that bin first and see what u can use
This helps reduce food waste and not have random rotting food lying around. Also you can pretend you are on Chopped and it's one of your mystery ingredients.

YALL I JUST FOUND THIS OUT AND IM SO EXCITED!!!! YOU CAN USE CANDLE JARS AS CUTE DRINKING CUPS!!!
- clean out the wax with warm water and soap
- remove the label
- BAM A DRINKING CUP
Please make sure its thoroughly cleaned.
It does have to be a drinking mug. It could be a plant pot, spice jar, and pencil jar. YOU LITERALLY MAKE IT INTO ANYTHING!!!
For my witches out there, you can put in died flowers or herbs, MOON WATER (or any type of water you collect for your craft), or a big spell jar. Omg u guys can do so much with it!!!

THE HORRORS OF CAFOS 🐄🐷🐓 DUN-DUN-DUNNN
Since Halloween is right around the corner, here is a scary story for you that's happening in your backyard. Happy hauntings my green leaves 😈😈 MUWAHAH *violently starts coughing* sorry asthma
CAFOS stands for concentrated animal feeding operation. They are the big animal farms you see with a bunch of cows, pigs, and chickens in cages.
If you want a good halloween movie I suggest u watch movies about CAFOS. They are VERY graphic and disturbing, so watch at your own risk.
Some CAFOS movies
Food Inc
Farm to fridge
Cowspiracy
Cock fight
Right to harm
THE DEADLY FACTS ABOUT CAFOS ☠☠
Animals are injected w antibiotics and growth hormones (that u end up consuming)
Animal cruelty - mostly to baby animals
Overcrowded = a breeding ground for disease
Unsanitary (POOP AND PEE EVERYWHERE)
Release pollutants (ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, methane)
Land, water, waste pollution
Requires A LOT of land
Contributes to climate change

WHY IS MEATLESS MONDAYS COOL??
Cutting down on meat = less contribution to climate change (I'll explain CAFOS in another post)
Try a new vegetarian/vegan recipe. I LOVE vegetarian meals, they are freaking bomb. I'm not talking about a salad. I'm talking bout an actual MEAL.
It can boost your heart health bc a lot of meats we get at the grocery store is pumped out with injections and why not from the animals. Eat veggies, beans, and nuts.
It cuts down on energy. Eating meats costs more energy than vegetables because of CAFOS
(CAFOS stands for concentrated animal feeding operation)
I know sometimes it can be hard doing meatless mondays if you really love meat or you are in a family that eats meat based meals. I recommend doing it once a month and see where it takes you, then slowly add another monday in, and BAM you are doing meatless mondays for a whole month!!! Take it slow and easy!! ADD TO THE LIST IF YOU KNOW MORE STUFF I LOVE IT WHEN YOU GUYS DO THAT CAUSE I LEARN FROM YOUR GUYS TOO!!!!!!

TIP 14
Have leftover veggies?? Make some broth!!
Make vegetable broth out of ur kitchen scraps
The base should be onions, carrots, celery, salt, and pepper (if you say salty is too spicy then im going to come to ur house and feed u spices like the cinnamon challenge... add the salt emma). Let it sim for 2-3 hrs. When it's done make sure u strain it and u can freeze it up to 6 months.
Other things you can add
Bell peppers
Leafy greens
Herbs (not the one you get from ur plug)
The skins of veggies
Mushrooms (not the "fun" ones)
Inspo/reference pics at the bottom :)
You can make a lot of sauces and soup w veggie broth
This reduces our food waste bc we are getting the most out of the food before we throw it away.

- Buy wood kitchen utensils for cooking and eating with it
My mom recently brought wood spoons for cooking instead of the weird plastic/silicon ones we had.
Can someone tell me if we can use metal ones, I think u cant right? Cause it will get hot. I'm a horrible cook you guys.

Back to School ->Ecofriendly Edition
Since some of yall are going back to school, I thought about sharing some ways to be nice to the earth while going back to school
Reuse your old notebooks. Take out used pages (pst pst you can use shredded paper for compost) and BAM new notebook
USE THE SCHOOL SUPPLIES U ALREADY HAVE!!!! I can't stress this enough, if you already have highlighters, don't go buy new ones, FINISH THE ONE U ALREADY HAVE
Try to use up the paper as much as possible. I have a bunch of scrap paper laying around, I use the plain back of the paper to show my work in math. I also write down equations I need to remember and keep it.
Buy second hand supplies. I know they always have a lot of binders and folders. I needed sticky notes for English class I found some sticky notes at a thrift store, it had the label of some insurance company, so heads up its not always gonna look pretty. If you get lucky you might find a one direction notebook 😉
Use those free pens you get from ur doctor's office or the bank. Instead of going out and buying blue or black pens, use those thousands of free pens laying around. My blue pen is a plain pen I got from dentist and my black pen is a pen from my dad's bank. ITS LITERALLY FREE GUYS!!!!
IF YOU HAVE MORE TO ADD PLEASE ADD THEM!!! Be safe at school if you are going in person. Wear a mask. Wash your hands. Social distance. If you are doing school online PLEASE DO YOUR WORK IT COUNTS!!! Ok I love yall, stay safe my green leaves and my dms are always open if you gotta rant about your math teacher :))

Greenhouse Affect #24. Symbiopoiesis. August 28, 2020.
“Symbiopoeisis” is when an organism relies on a symbiotic relationship with another organism for its development. Almost all organisms are a little symbiopoeitic, one way or another.
The species described in this comic are: Euprymna scolopes (and Vibrio fischeri) and Maculinea arion (and Myrmica sabuleti)
