We talk a lot about small steps we can take to better the planet while we're living on it. One thing that’s not often discussed, however, is the environmental impact of leaving it. Toxic chemicals leach into the soil from embalming, and cremation releases millions of tons of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. The solution? If you ask Katey Houston and Brie Smith of Return Home, the world's first large-scale terramation facility, that’s human composting. In this week’s episode, we dig into the environmental impact of dying and options that could transform the "deathcare" industry for the better.

Transportation accounts for 29% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, making it the largest contributor—even over electricity and agriculture. After decades of stalled action on fuel efficiency standards, fuel efficiency and new vehicle greenhouse gas standards are on a path to improve over the next 13 years.

Unlike most of my friends and family, I like shopping considerably more than they do. Consequently, I'm continuously on the lookout for places where you may get good deals on goods. The website https://alitools.io/en/features/aliexpress-image-search not only helps you find the best deals on AliExpress, but it also offers other features. Every time I want to buy anything from them, I go via their website.

I only now came across this and went back and listened from the very beginning! I love it so much!!! Especially loved the Parka episode so far....this has been a constant research project for me that has ended in me pushing off buying a good winter coat for years now. I'm also moving into a new space which I will need to furnish. Loved all the direction on how to spend my hard earned dollars in a productive way!
