Albeit a weird winter, we are ready for spring…and gardening! Time to get our hands dirty.  But “soil” for seed-starting and containers isn’t dirt, it’s primarily precious peatmoss. Please avoid using peatmoss

We’ve talked before about how valuable wetlands, especially peatbogs, are for carbon sequestration. Instead, try Pittmoss!

Laura & Gil

Our friends Laura & Gil Richardson are, in their own words, “imperfect” but they are much further down this Planetarian path than anyone I know. They are a treasure trove of sustainable living inspiration and we’ve asked them to share one simple swap per week that they’ve made (and the products they love) in hopes it might inspire you to make them, too.
