Weekly Link Roundup, October 10, 2016

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! If you’re not busy preparing for a hearty Thanksgiving dinner (as a guest or a host), here are this week’s links to keep you busy before you are. We’ve even thrown in a couple of Thanksgiving themed links in the spirit of the holiday.

  • 8 Easy Green Thanksgiving Tips
    • Our favourite quote from the article, for no other reason than the fact that we’re already feeling sleepy just thinking about dinner: “Before you rush to eat yourself into a Tryptophan-induced coma, take a minute to think about where your food comes from.”
  • How to Go Green: Thanksgiving Day
    • Definitely one of the most thorough posts on Thanksgiving eco-friendliness we’ve seen! Lots of helpful information here, including some cool facts about turkeys!
  • Best Before Dates & Expiry Dates: 5 Things You May Not Know
    • Did you know that the yolk of an egg past its best before date may be more likely to break? More importantly, there’s probably nothing wrong with it, as long as it’s not cracked. Before you throw out those eggs that were best before yesterday, read this article and start reducing your food waste.
  • The Big Sort: An Insider’s Tour of a Recycling Plant
    • Ever wonder how that jumble of recyclable waste in your blue bin actually gets sorted? Here’s a cool video showing what happens to the contents of your blue box after they’re collected from your curb.
  • Red Propeller
    • Do you know what a VHS tape is? If you do, chances are you probably have a collection of them lurking behind a pile of junk in  your basement–right beside the picture of you sporting a fantastic mullet. Like your mullet, their time has passed. Convert their contents to DVD or Blu-ray and recycle them with this company. Amazingly, they also accept children’s used car seats for recycling so you don’t have to throw them in the garbage!

Hope you all have a great holiday everyone! Remember to follow us on Facebook or Twitter for regular updates, tips and news.
