Eco Trash

Just what will they come up with next?

Eco Trashcan.  Envi promotes green by processing biodegradable waste. 
Yes, that’s right.  It actually turns biodegradable waste into organic compost, which in turn, sustains the plant which it carries and lives in harmony with.
Most of the compost produced by Envi can be removed from the container and used for other applications.
This project uses bio-reactive substances based on photo catalysis to accelerate the degradation process of waste into organic compost.  If used properly, the plant within the container will grow and thrive.  If not, the plant dies.

A Southern Winter Wonderland

It’s not often that Wilmington, NC finds itself in the path of a major winter storm event.  Maybe this happens once every decade.

Well, it happened for southern North Carolina residents last night.  Here is what we woke up to this morning!

The snow-covered landscape seems surreal--

Last night on the evening news, Brian Williams reported that 49 of our 50 states reported measurable snow last night.  That is quite a statistic! 

Snow  is especially appropriate now as all eyes are on Vancouver for the Winter Olympics. 

If the snow has found you today, I hope you enjoy it as it will soon be gone!
