Anna's column is titled The Subject is Soup - a fitting topic for our chilly winter days. We learned that soup is the second oldest cooking method and that is believed to be responsible for the invention of restaurants. Always interesting reading from Anna. Click here to read Anna's article.

Sustainable Tip of the Week
We found this in one of the weekly newsletters we receive and thought it worth passing along: Upcycling Plastic Pill Bottles.
These translucent orange containers are often taken for granted and end up in a landfill. Because they are originally meant to store pills, these bottles are waterproof and are good at keeping dust away from their contents so they can be pretty useful. Just be sure to clean and dry them before you reuse them.
Here are just a few ideas as to what they could be used to hold.
