Like I said we took out the recycling today and then we plugged all the new amounts in to this super computer we bought off e-bay and it told us that since Nov. 1st (our official launch date) through today we have sent 25.01 cy (cubic yards) or 675.4 cf (cubic feet) to recycling. Whaaaa?! Thats enough to fill up a sweet above ground pool with 5,082.706 gallons of Amy's Ice Cream (which is being given away for free today in Austin, Tx via Google and we were so close to a road trip, but then we realized it would be Thursday before we could get there on our bikes...)
- There isnt much we can say about this next article except that you just really need to read it. I mean we come across hundreds of articles everyday and this is one we couldnt skim. It is part of a series so we will post the next parts as they are released.

- If you are one of those people that crys a lot because you dont own a house you rent one, but dont know how to make it "greener" then you need to read this...and also figure out why you cry so much about stuff like this... http://www.treehugger.com/files/2011/03/can-renters-go-green-too.php?campaign=th_rss
- WISCONSIN is trying super hard to become the next MONTANA! We dont know what it is with this states close to our Canadian friends, but they are getting real dumb. Dont worry we are going to send them a bunch of UNdumb the world stickers when they get made. but check this out, the Wis. Gov. took away all funding for wind energy. Thank goodness that stuff about burning coal is a total myth...oh ooops its not. Either way Wisconsin is officially on the "Being a Montana list". http://www.grist.org/article/2011-03-25-wisconsin-gov.-scott-walker-ruins-everything-including-wind-powe
