Waste nothing, I tell my son. We draw pictures on the back sides of flyers from school. We eat our roast chicken for supper then boil the bones for tomorrow’s soup. It’s all about appreciating the blessings we have without living a numbness to how good we have it. Take care of all things entrusted to you, and by the way, open up that napkin, the inside’s still good.

Demode is a genius material developed by Bernardita Marambio of Pecas Design Studio, comprised of left over scraps from textile factories of Santiago, Chile. In Santiago a jaw-dropping 46 thousand tons of waste is a result of these factories alone. A mix of plastics and natural materials are pressed together with a 100% biodegradable adhesive, making for a strong product that has been used in wall tiles and furniture pieces. They are a standard setter company, challenging the globe to waste not, striving toward environmental care certification. We are inspired by their efforts, looking forward to their success with this wonderful new product in all its possibilities.

Allison

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
