A SIMPLE £40 gadget which keeps fruit and vegetables fresh in the fridge for twice as long has been launched in the Uk. The 'BerryBreeze' device pumps pure oxygen around the fridge which kills the bacteria that causes food to decay.

Feeding the family is an important area where a great deal of effort and expense go towards.
Food waste is such a HUGE problem on so many levels, and it always gives us hope when we see the next generation stepping into the role of affecting positive change in this area. One of the best ways to support and facilitate reducing food waste is through educational institutions, which is why we’re taking a moment today to recognize some programs across the country that have kids and schools taking the
Tomorrow is Earth Day, and for many Americans one of the only times of year where they stop and think about the “big picture” regarding the planet and our place on it.

Unlike much of the country, we have been experiencing just the opposite of a “polar vortex” here in Las Vegas, with it sunny and in the seventies for the end of our winter. Not much snow activity happening in the mountains around here, which has us looking to maybe take a trip eastward to have a little ski-cation weekend before spring fully takes hold of the land. We were perusing some of the ski
