Eco-centric

Nothing is off limits when it comes to greener alternatives

Implications - Recycling and composting is one thing; using poop or urine as a home garden fertilizer or alligator fat to fuel your car is completely another. As bizarre and eccentric as some new sustainable solutions may seem, they are becoming more prevalent in the world of eco. Now, green-minded consumers are beginning to recognize that committing to a green lifestyle means the embrace of eco alternatives they would have never before even considered.
