What will you do to help create the change you feel in your soul? Will you help your fellow man or woman? Will you make just the slightest of change to effect the community and world in which you live?
Why is it that the simplest efforts create the most significant impact. Is it the 20/80 rule where 20% of your most effortless input creates 80% of your success. Maybe it is the 20% of our efforts, time or energy that we give back that creates the 80% of rewards we reap in our lives. Here is a project with a simple plan and guideline for you to give your 20%.

Verterra is a new company producing and selling recycleable / compostable dishes that are stylish, functional and completely environmentally friendly. What started as a dream just a few years ago has now turned into a real company that produces about a million pieces of flatware per month who's products are found in diverse venues such as Whole Foods Markets, football stadium box seats and even the upcoming Winter Olympics to be held in Vancouver, B.C. Verterra has received recognition as the Best New Green / Environmentally Friendly Product. The biggest problem Michael Dwork, the company founder, has encountered is that they look so stylish that people might find them to attractive to throw away. He does state that repeat orders stand at ninety percent so that obstacle must be working itself out.
The Verterra products are made exclusively from fallen leaves of trees and water with no additives. How cool? They are designed to be fully compostable & won't contaminate the environment so people can toss them away with food waste and landfills won't need to be littered with polystyrene foam products that are loaded with hazardous chemicals and take eons to breakdown.

The Peruvian police arrested four people and are searching for two more who were allegedly part of an underground ring of individuals participating in the murder of unsuspecting people in remote areas of Peru. The slain individuals then had their body fat extracted, packaged up and sold on the black market.
Makes you wonder a little bit about what is in things we use and consume.
