Christal White from the Green Project delivers The Green Minute.
New Orleans is a city that has long been known for its amazing cuisine, but not exactly for being the most green. Our recipe for success is delicious, but lacks some very important: environmentally responsible ingredients. Well, leave it to LifeCity to tweak the recipe.

Shopping for a car can be a real headache, especially for the eco-conscious consumer. Is electric really best? How about a hybrid? What if I just buy a used gasoline-powered car? The answer is…it depends. On a lot.
Medicaid and controversy seem inseparable in many states lately. For the most part, the wrangling is about a new wrinkle in Medicaid — the expansion of the health program for the poor and disabled under Obamacare.

With the cost of makin’ groceries steadily increasing every day, maybe it’s time for us to revisit buying in bulk.
I’m not suggesting that we all run out to the big box warehouse store for 20 dozen eggs and some snow tires, but rather hit up your local farmer’s markets, food co-ops and grocery stores for beans, rice, pastas, olive oil, maple syrup, honey, flours, soaps, nuts, granolas and even tofu. To find the best local selection, there’s a free app simply called Bulk.
People who say that nothing lasts forever are dead wrong when it comes to Styrofoam.
Styrofoam (or polystyrene, as the men in white coats call it) is a petroleum based product that will likely outlast us all — and that’s not a good thing.

Combine that with the fact that Styrofoam is lightweight and floats, and you’ve got massive quantities accumulating along coasts and waterways around the world, which makes it a health hazard for marine life.
Got too much junk in your trunk? Don't think pants size, think all that unsolicited bulk mail that clogs your box each day. And if you think a little junk can’t hurt, we seriously have a badonkadunk of a problem. Here’s junk mail by the numbers:
