Winter 2013: Montreal's Igloofest

For the first time ever, I had the pleasure of attending one of Montreal's biggest winter parties. Igloofest is an outdoor party hosted in the old port of Montreal. The event boasts performances by some of the best local and international artists in the electronic scene. The visual ambiance is definitely one not to miss, with it's 'ice-and-steel' decor, one can expect igloo-like structures, sculptures, and much much more. My favourite part of the entire event were the fire pits conveniently located throughout the venue where guests were invited to roast marshmallows!

The Green Thing

I saw this on Facebook last week and I really wanted to share it on here because it's SO TRUE! It's definitely something that I gave some thought to!

The Green Thing

Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the older woman that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment. The woman apologized and explained, "We didn't have this green thing back in my earlier days." The young clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations."

She was right -- our generation didn't have the green thing in its day.

Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were truly recycled.

But we didn't have the green thing back in our day.
