Memories are great, but they don't have to take up room in your closet: donate prom dresses to one of these organizations that share them with the less fortunate (thus making much more efficient use of the resources that went into them). #promdresses   #reuse   #donations  
Wearing a dress for one night isn't a particularly efficient use of resources. You can donate prom dresses to one of these organizations for reuse.

It turns out recycling fraud can be worth millions. #recycling   #crime   #fraud  
Recycling fraud worth $14 million? Who'd have thought. But that's the size of a California-based fraud ring recently broken up by authorities.

One of my favorite places in town to get some work done, grab a cup of coffee, or meet someone for lunch. Love the fact that they provide details on the coffees they brew (roast, body, acidity).
