Man invents machine to convert plastic back to oil


Not my “normal” WannaSmile post, sure. However, there is nothing more I love than seeing someone come up with a way to better our planet and reduce the waste that we produce! This guy has come up with a portable machine that can be taken anywhere to help people reduce their waste and re-use it:)

I wanna hug this kid. A plea to President Obama:

I voted for him, and I think he has true vision. Looks like this lil’ guy thinks the same thing. As my mom would say “out of the mouth of babe’s”. Sometimes children see things in such a simple way that is so pure and true. It’s simple. Stop killing whales.

Just trying to do my part in helping save the planet;) For more excellent information and great articles on “green updates”, check out TreeHugger.com

branch_eggling_basil_320This little container is made out of ceramic and shaped to look like a cracked egg. Perfect lil’ thing for your desktop or Mother’s Day! You can choose the type of seeds you’d like to have sent with the container, all for under $15. Not too shabby in today’s economy. I kinda want one for my desktop here at the office…I’m thinking a lavender plant would be nice:)

Coolest Kids Playhouse Evah:

qbleadI know that this was designed for a child in mind, but come on! I want one too! These are qb Playhouses, and they encourage the child to create their own space and design the look with various color options and everything. Not only that, but they are environmentally safe to boot! You can pretend you’re a hobbit with the way these are built, love it:) Here’s a link to the article for more information, click here.
