What Happened This Week?

Fall is in the air! I’ve pulled out the warmer coats and soups are starting to simmer on the stove. Used local leeks and potatoes to make this favorite for dinner this week. In the meantime, the election is imminent! Let’s see how politics affect the environment. Plus some other fun links to share.

Recycling continues to be a controversial issue in New Hampshire. Some argue it saves money because it diverts waste from the land fill (and all of the fees associated with disposing of that waste) while others argue that it costs tax-payers more. As always, you can avoid this issue by reducing, reusing, refusing, repairing, rotting and respecting.

The Green New Deal was a hot topic during this week’s Vice Presidential debate. I’m sure you’ve heard about this plan, but do you know the details? We offer a summary.

Eversource hosted “Energy Saves Day,” where they provided energy-saving tips while we hunker down during the colder months. There are some great suggestions on this sheet. For example, did you know you cooling your food, before putting in the fridge, saves energy? I didn’t!

A fun video from the Northeast Resource Recovery Association: Tuck Your Worms in at Night: Subpod Food Scrap Composting Setup. You can also learn basic composting techniques on GreenLifeNH!

And here’s a recap of other topics Hannah and I discussed this week on GreenLifeNH!
