    I listened to a podcast about generating meat from animal cells. I thought this might be an odd process, but the idea was to save on the slaughter of animals as the animal does not need to die in order to harvest a few cells to grow their meat/protein in a lab environment. Not sure how I feel about this at this time...?

    Energy Upgrade My Windows
    How does improving your home's energy efficiency help you better live out your values?

    Value in the simple sense equates to dollars and windows that keep out the cold and in the heat save dollars. In my personal values, it is wise and in my best interest to utilize the most efficient products I can afford to save on my environmental footprint that inefficient windows can cause and this is in everyone's best interest.
