Earth Day Things We Love

This month is dedicated to the environment, so we're checking out some top modern eco finds...

Mobile-garden-portable New at A plus R store is the Mobile Garden, a portable greenspace perfect for nomads or, more likely, apartment dwellers with a bit of roof space or a patio. Comes in different sizes, all made of 100% recyclable material that is UV-, frost-, tear- and traction-resistant, and even permeable to let soil breathe and drain with limited evaporation while protecting roots.  Phew, that's a mouthful of benefits and I have yet another...

Almost a year ago, the NY Times did a piece on lead in garden soil. It may get there from when the house was scraped and painted, or if a garage was removed or a home burned downed. Anyway it gets there, it stays, and leaches into produce grown in that soil. The article recommended soil testing and recommended building raised beds with new soil for produce. One of these gardens would be a perfect solution, too. So, as much as it may appeal to people with limited space for gardening, it's also got a place in larger yards. 

More modern, green trends.
