That’s why I’ve worked to bring my zero-waste habits to the restaurants, cozy cafes and easy, family-style pizza parties I often frequent. Check out […]
By Jennifer Tuohy We love to hate laminate countertops. They’re durable and functional, but they look utilitarian. They also last forever, which makes ripping them out to install trendy stone countertops a tough decision. We don’t want to send them to the landfill when they still have life left in them, but we want to […]
By Jennifer Tuohy The combination of working from home and managing the lives of a family of four means accumulating a lot of paperwork. Despite my efforts to live a paperless lifestyle—via scanning and recycling—I simply cannot live without a good filing system. For many years, I used a beat-up old filing cabinet stashed in […]
