There are a ton of opportunities to repurpose things around the house, upcycle, or get creative with the way you present your presents this holiday season!
Noel and Jacob sift through what is considered recyclable trash and what goes into landfill and discover that they didn’t know as much as they thought.

However, did you know there is a lot more green going on in and around the Super Bowl…other than just the Green Bay […]
