One Beach Explores Cleaning Beaches One Piece of Plastic at a Time

Barefoot Wine presents us an excellent documentary entitled One Beach, which asks it’s audience to think outside of the box when it comes to the environment and preserving our beaches. Directed by Jason Baffa, he shows us that all walks of life can contribute to keep our beaches clean and find innovative ways to spread the message.

The documentary featured live September 20 on Facebook, but can be accessed online through the Barefoot Wine YouTube page.

When I watch this, it reminds me of all of my childhood memories growing up. I spent my weekends at Tobay beach in Long Beach, Long Island and continue to take family vacations to beautiful islands with gorgeous beaches. It is important that people stay diligent about keeping our beaches clean so we can continue to have these experiences to enrich our lives.


Although we should be thinking about the environment every day, we dedicate one day of the year to focus specifically on issues affecting the environment.

Today’s goal should be doing at least one good deed

for the environment – there are many things that you can do!

-Walk instead of drive your car

-Turn off the lights for an hour or two

-Pick up some garbage you see on the ground


Feel free to come up with your own creative, eco-friendly ideas and share with us! Hopefully one day of improvement can change behaviors for the long haul.

Best Make-Your-Own Halloween Costumes

I hope that everyone enjoyed their Halloween this year – delicious candy, fun costumes and lots of partying!

In my opinion, my favorite party of the holiday is dressing-up. Rather than purchasing a costume at the store where everyone buys the same thing, it’s an opportunity for you to bring out your creativity, while being cost-effective.

Inspired by the Britney Spears “Circus” music video, this year, I decided to be a circus ringleader. I put together my outfit with my mother’s vintage red blazer, along with clothing already in my closet. To add the finishing touches, I purchased a few items, which came to less than $30.

Making your own costume is not only fun but gives you the opportunity to express yourself in ways that you only imagined about.

Check out the NY Times blog Daily Green’s list of unique Halloween costumes using recyclable materials on a low budget. The best one on the list? The hamburger dress costume – doesn’t it make you want to order one?
