This Earth pilgrim is highMany moons ago, the American Indians used to celebrate Thanksgiving the right way — the green way. Then the pilgrims came along, and ol’ Gaea wasn’t invited to many more Thanksgiving dinners after that.

Well, I say it’s time to slide back a chair, dust it off, and offer Mother Earth a seat at an ol’ fashioned green Thanksgiving this year.

Green Thanksgiving Foods

  • Wild food – forage through your local woods for edible plants. Mushrooms are always a tasty treat. Don’t forget your protein-packed pal, the grubworm!
  • Reused food – you’d be shocked and appalled at the food that some businesses throw out. Save this food from the landfill! A barely-expired can of cranberries can make a sumptuous side dish to complement a locally-found bird or deer.

If you’re like me, you like having a desert plant around, whether it be a colossal cactus, a jolly jade plant, or another succulent species o’ flora.

Still good as new

I’m still using the same razor that I bought on New Year’s Day. 4 months and still going strong, thanks to the patented Immortal Razor technique!

To refresh, here are the three steps necessary to keep using your same razor generation after generation.

  1. Buy/make/steal/”borrow” a razor.
  2. Clean out all hair, blood, skin, or what have you after each use.
  3. Dry off your razor, using soft, wooly towels or the warm breeze of a hair dryer.

It’s as simple as that. By maintaining your razor, you can save some money, plus you don’t have to throw away your old razor. Kill two birds with one stone.
