    I was drawn to the "Land Sinks" challenge of choosing better wood products namely because of my use and relationship with paper. Because of the method in which my education began, I have a special interest and relationship with using pen-to-paper products.

As such, I always tried my best to throw paper, plastic, and metal into the blue bins whenever they were available. It is important as a tool as it means that new materials such as metal ore or...

    Community gardens at first glance appear to be on too small of a scale to create any kind of real change, globally. However, there is plenty of land available for the creation of these gardens that building enough of them could have a significant impact on the sequestration of carbon emissions. The fundamental idea is that any kind of plant...
