A casual glance at a magazine spread or a 30-minute TV viewing session confirms what any media-savvy consumer already knows: There are a lot of children working in the advertising business today. Many work as actors, others as models.

There have been considerable efforts from all sorts of entities including: governmental sectors, for-profit and nonprofit industry divisions, the media, and etc., to build awareness and encourage the general public to take on a proactive approach. Not only is a good idea to conserve, but a personal responsibility we all should take into account. It’s a matter of duty to ourselves, to each other (humanity), and for all forms of life; for the overall betterment of the entire planet as well as for the future generations to come. We may know of such a responsibility, but do our children know of it? We need to educate our children, so that they understand and comprehend that they too play an important role in this matter.

If you enjoy making smoothies or other tasty treats that need to be blended, you will need to buy a quality blender. However, all blenders are not created equal. The quality of blenders can vary greatly, so you will need to do some research in order to find the model that is best suited for your needs. If you are interested in buying a Vitamix blender, there are websites such as Blender Babes that will give you all of the necessary information that you need to have before making a purchase. Here is how you can find out where to buy a quality blender.
1. Ask people that you know
If you know other people who have the same eating habits that you do, talk to them and see what model of blender they use. Ask them if they are satisfied with the way their blender prepares their drinks. If you receive a number of positive reviews about a particular model, you should do some more research on it. Along with asking people in your family, you can also ask your close friends. If you find that not enough of these people use blenders, you can expand your search to people who live in your area and people you work with. Speaking to this large number of people should give you a decent selection of blenders to choose from.
2. Read reviews of blenders online
There is a chance that you still may not be able to get the amount of blender recommendations that you want by talking to your friends, family, neighbors or coworkers. If this is the case, you can go online to read a wide variety of reviews of various blenders. There are many sites that are set up to enable people just like you to write detailed reviews of any product they have used. Blenders are no exception. These reviews should let you know about all of the features that a blender has, as well as its ability to perform. The information you receive from reading these reviews will be very helpful to you when it comes to making a purchase.
3. Blender company websites
You can also go directly to some of the blender manufacturer websites to get information from them. While their information will not be unbiased like the customer reviews, these sites will tell you more information about some of the features, as well as the warranty.
Love sipping seltzer with your meals? Your favorite beverage can do more than just satisfy your thirst.
1. Breathe new life into a dying houseplant with flat club soda. Before using it, make sure the soda is room temperature, then use it as you would water to reinvigorate your plants. The minerals in the soda enrich the soil.
2. Have a rusty screw that you can’t get to turn? Pour some club soda on it, then wait five minutes before trying to twist it again. The carbon dioxide releases the rust and buildup, making it easier to turn.
3. Get rid of stuck-on food. After dinner, when your dishes and pans have hard-to-remove food on them, a little bit of club soda will help you get your dishes clean. If you have other home cleaning products that you’d like to sell, check out tools like Secure Net Shop. In order to sell online, you’ll need to weigh the pros and cons of different shopping cart systems.
4. Make your pancakes fluffier than ever by using club soda in place of milk or water. The bubbles aerate the batter, which makes your waffles or pancakes lighter and fluffier. Plus, you’ll save some calories by cutting out the milk.
5. If you drink tea or coffee daily, your mugs are probably a bit stained. If you can’t seem to scrub the stain away, fill the mug with club soda and let it soak overnight. The carbonic acid in the soda will get rid of the stains.
6. During spring cleaning, make your bathroom fixtures look like new again by polishing chrome with club soda. Pour some of the beverage onto a soft, clean cloth, then wipe the metal. You’ll get rid of the grime without even leaving so much as a water spot behind.
7. If Jello is your go-to dessert, kick it up a notch by using club soda instead of water. Not only will the bubbles make the gelatin look sparkly, but it’ll also give it a bit of fizz. Opt for flavored seltzer for even more flair.
8. Don’t bother investing in expensive jewelry cleaners. Club soda can be used to clean most metals. Just let the jewelry soak overnight, then dry it off in the morning.
Who knew that something as inexpensive as club soda was a can’t-live-without product for your home
