DIY & an UPCYLCE a necklace for Earth Day

Aimee Lastrella

April 21, 2011

Believe it or not, this necklace was free and it was made out of an old t-shirt. Doesn’t look like it, does it? All you have to do is find a previously loved shirt that is in gently used condition and get crafty. Any color or print works, but generally, the best necklaces are made from simple...

Celebrate Earth Day with an upcycle

Aimee Lastrella

April 20, 2011

Like my necklace? Like today's issue? Too bad we aren't printed on recycled paper. Ironic isn't it? How the world can be so green forward and preach about green initiatives, but those who preach don't practice them. But today's CSUN Footprint entry isn't about another guilt trip. but rather a ...

You’re guilty, so celebrate Earth Day a little early this year

Aimee Lastrella

April 12, 2011

Personally, I think it is quite sad that we only celebrate the Earth only one day a year. Especially, when we hurt and contaminate it on a daily basis, but nonetheless, at least we celebrate it. Scratch that. As a community we don't. Well we kind of do, but if I really want to look at the CSUN community,...

With World Water Day only one day away, I feel that the best way to promote it would be to suggest some fun and helpful ways to conserve water. Some things on the list are more fun, suggestive, interesting and creative. I looked up a bunch of conservation tips online, but these definitely are t...

February 21, 2011

It's a whole new take on Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth," sort of? I don't know how to explain it really, but ever since then I have been an eco-documentary junkie. If it has to do with the world and how to save it, how we're killing it or all of the above- shot in documentary style, I have probably...

I've always dreamed about being with a dirty politician, haven't you? Just thinking about hooking up with one, especially a politician that loves to pollute, just gets my feathers ruffled and gets me all hot and bothered. NOT, and Greenpeace shares my sentiment. Just in time for this week's love fest, known as ...

Aimee Lastrella

February 10, 2011

I'm sorry, the inner broke college student meets fashionista loves the retailer H&M, but the inner tree-hugger is not too fond of the brand. I'm not that forgiving when it comes to second, third and fourth chances. H&M, I love your prices and your fashions, but I do not love your practices. In...

Eco-Valentine’s Day ideas

Aimee Lastrella

February 3, 2011

Love don't cost a thing and it shouldn't cost the environment either. Valentine's Day is right around the corner and before you go and kill some flowers and purchase non-fairtrade chocolates, I think you should rethink your love situation. I'm a girl. So I know, I am kind of lucky when it comes...
