I’m going back to school this fall.  To get my gears running, I’ve been diving myself into documentaries.  As adults, when we are removed from the educational realm, it’s often really difficult to continually expand our knowledge.  I’ve always loved documentaries.  But with watching any documentaries, I always go in with the mentality of “take… Continue reading Sustainability Documentaries to Watch This Month

If you are one of those lucky people with 20/20 vision (like my husband), I envy you.  But for the unlucky souls like me, I wanted to offer a few tips on keeping your eye care as sustainable as possible.
