Two Years Ago in Treehugger


TreeHugger was light two years ago for the Thanksgiving weekend; many posts on the holiday and Buy Nothing Day which we have all had enough of now. We did see that great idea from Dupont- a smoke detector that recharges itself from a light socket; it now comes in a less ugly model that you can wire in to a junction box if you have a ceiling fixture. We learned that cranberries are good for your teeth, that Ontario approved some new wind farms for 2007 (none of which happened), and that the third world is being turned into a biofuel plantation to keep our SUV's running. More carmakers showed up at shows with vaporware hybrids (some things never change) although we did like Brent's '32 Ford hybrid. ::Two years ago in TreeHugger
