Ok, I’m late to the party this spring. Between weird weather, allergies and an exceptionally busy Green Diva Studio schedule (thank you GD Lynn!), I just haven’t had the pull to be outside playing much yet this spring. So last weekend as part of our Mother’s Day fun, the kids and Wayne and I got started on setting up our deck, which is normally my favorite ‘office’ this time of year!

Gracie supervised . . . but there was an awful layer of pollen and dirt on EVERYTHING. I ran in to get my usual non-toxic glass cleaner, but there was none left. argh. So, I decided to get creative and make some. Grabbed the ingredients that seemed like they might work. Here’s what worked and worked much better than I thought it would!

GD Meg’s easy non-toxic, no-streak DIY glass cleaner

1/4 cup Dr. Bronner’s unscented baby mild castile soap (I keep this on hand for many of my homemade foaming soaps and other things)

1/2 cup white vinegar

1 1/2 cup clean water (I always use my filtered water for stuff like this)

I used an old glass cleaner spray bottle (I keep these kinds of things around for just this reason)

Give it a really good shake to mix it up and keep it from curdling. Mine did have a few small white chunks in it after a couple of weeks, but it still worked beautifully and doesn’t seem to be a problem. 

Here’s my clean and streak-free glass table as I write this post!

A Fierce Green Fire

Spanning 50 years of grassroots and global activism, this Sundance documentary brings to light the vital stories of the environmental movement where people fought – and succeeded – against enormous odds. From halting dams in the Grand Canyon to fighting toxic waste at Love Canal; from Greenpeace to Chico Mendes; from climate change to the promise of transforming our civilization, A Fierce Green Fire is “nothing less than the history of environmentalism itself.” (Los Angeles Times). Official Selection Sundance Film Festival.

Overfed and Undernourished

“We live in a world with increasing levels of Cancer, Heart Disease, Diabetes and Obesity. Over 70% of foods we consume on a daily basis are processed, and according to the World Health Organization, if current trends continue one billion people will be obese by 2030.

With our fast paced lives, we have become reliant and connected to devices, TVs, computers, tablets and smartphones and disconnected with the natural world, and the people around us.

“Overfed & Undernourished” examines modern lifestyles and a global epidemic through one boy’s inspiring story to regain his health from the inside out. After heartache, Liam, weighing in at over 80kgs (176lbs) turns to his Aunty & Uncle for help, and embarks on a journey where we witness the highs and lows, a family unite for a common cause, and the promise of transforming his life forever.

With 25% of children and 74% of adults obese or overweight, Liam’s problem is not uncommon, but, as the film illustrates, the treatment is more readily attainable than most people think.

This ground breaking documentary is interspersed with interviews and advice from leading health and wellbeing experts from around the globe and provides us with simple solutions to improve the quality of our diet, lifestyle, and personal bonds, ultimately asking us the fundamental question – are we really nourishing ourselves?

Featuring: Joe Cross (Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead), Dr. John Demartini (The Secret), Dr. Anthony Gollé, Dr. Arne Rubinstein and Don Tolman."
