Diapers Don't Biodegrade? BioUPgrade By Making A Rooftop Diaper Herb Garden!

The environmental impact of disposable diapers got you down? Which depresses you more? Their non-biodegradability, landfill fillability, non-compostability, non-recyclability, or their weird, chemically enabled absorbability?

Well, cheer up, it's spring! The time of year when unpronounceable Dutch design firms emerge from the long, dark winter spent calculating the nitrogen fertilizer potential of the sodium acrylate crystals in a single, urine-filled Pamper. The season when they venture out onto the roof with their planting trays and seeds and topsoil--and their Diaper Genies and Exacto knives and rubber gloves--to transform their pee-soaked bounty into a lightweight herb garden in The Hague.

As for me, Big Mac's a Big Mac, except they call it de Big Mac.

I love it. Now I can feel less guilty for battling my husband against the inferior G Diaper. I wonder if there's anything these guys can do with our awful collection of frilly pink dresses - corn fields?

While we all love to spoil our pets, there are times that our fur-kids
do not seem to get the same enjoyment out of a mass manufactured product as those that come from an individual crafter.

Sometimes they climb a tree to get away from a chasing dog, or other thing
they perceive to be a danger. This means that everyone needs to know what rooms the cat is allowed
in.
