    Grocery Store Demos: Whole Lotta Spillin’ Goin’ On

    Tweet Remember the 1950s? Even if you weren’t there personally, the decade’s been immortalized in TV sitcoms and song. Rock ‘n’ roll was just being born, and the music was typically sweet and innocent.

    When The Build Up Needs Clean Up

    Tweet We recently watched a heartwarming six-part series on The Ellen Show called The Build Up, in which two design and construction experts help transform a Baltimore community, paying it forward for two young men who are giving back at a local high school.

    A Farmer’s Frenzy of Spills

    Tweet The Chinese New Year, which begins in February, is always symbolized by a specific animal that defines the qualities for the coming year. It’s a very different concept from how we recognize a new year in the West, with lists of resolutions that are all too soon forgotten. 2019 is the Chinese Year of [...]

    Don’t Fall Off the Mountain

    Tweet Many years ago, Oscar-winning actress Shirley MacLaine wrote a book called, Don’t Fall Off the Mountain. She wasn’t focused on erosion control, but the title is apt: in winter months, when the rains often cascade in sheets, it’s all too easy for soil to wash away unless it’s protected. That’s where Jute netting comes in. Made from [...]
