Day 340: The Circle of Life

Today, I take a small step in promoting home-grown food.  And in resource-saving efficiency.  And a giant leap in making my apartment much cooler.  Today, I am supporting the Home Aquaponics Kit – a soil-free garden with a self-cleaning fish tank where plant and fish can coexist peacefully on my windowsill.  And yours.  Check out this very neat project and order one of these happy little ecosystems before December 15.

The waste-water from the fish is then pumped up & upcycled as an awesome organic fertilizer for the plants. The plants take up the nutrients and, at the same time, clean the water which then falls back down for the fish.
