How to find and support eco-friendly places on Google Maps

Google recognizes how important it is to be a sustainable business. At its Sustainable with Google event two weeks ago, Google highlighted its efforts to help people live more sustainably using Google products. Features announced included Nest Renew, to help people find eco-friendly commuter routes and even search for eco-friendly products and appliances. But when it comes to supporting sustainable businesses, Google is adopting a more DIY approach. For example, it added features to its My Business listings, allowing business owners to advertise whether or not they accept recycling materials and what varieties. But what about us? Sure we can pick up a sustainable phone, but how can we find and support those businesses going the extra mile to help the environment? There are two ways, and we'll show you how.

Why daffodils are the new tulips

This time last year, I was hastily shoving dozens of daffodil bulbs into every patio pot within a 10ft radius. I’d wound up with bags of the things, freebies from the nursery I’d made my bulb order with that year. I remember my scepticism: it was late October, the grass was carpeted with yellow leaves, the clematis was looking jaundiced. I don’t like yellow in the garden at the best of times, but the notion of a bright and bawdy daff was particularly unappealing.

DIY Halloween Card from Kids

When our daughter was younger, “we” made a lot of holiday cards for our far-away family. These usually consisted of a seasonal handprint or footprint.
