Planning for Family Getaway

My kids are so fascinated with wild animals and been pestering me to go to the zoo. I hope coming weekend we'll be free from all work related schedule so we can spend the day the kids way. Anyway, while watching Discovery Channel tonight, my kids saw whats on TV and its all about Tanzania safaris. We have been planning for a family getaway and that is the first on the list.

This is one way of connecting my kids to mother nature and animals..

Blogspot Templates

Today is one lucky day. I was busy tweaking my food blog when I came across my green / recycling blog. I was surprised to see that I got PR 1. Now my blog is getting popular lol.. :)

Then after a few months of reading other blogs, I decided to buy the domain from Blogger direct and got a free blogspot templates. I was so happy with the come out of the design. Its perfect for my niche especially if I received lovely comments from my friends.

Airtight Bags

I know its been quite a while since I last posted here. I have been very busy in the real business world as we have imported several 40 footer containers of recyclable materials to sort in our sorting facility and re-export these to other countries either China or Indonesia. These are the two countries that we currently focus on export as we have our own people who could help in business dealings.

We previously imported mixed scrap plastics / post consumer scrap from Europe. We then sorted all the scrap in the warehouse and found out that there are different kinds of plastic. As these are post consumer plastic scraps, some would arrive with even stinky food residue but still fully sealed by anylock sealing rods.

The procedure of waste collection in Germany starts from the household. Each household comes in individual garbage bin for plastic, paper, kitchen waste and glass. These bins are then collected by private companies for proper disposal, send for recycling or other processes. But I am surprised to see how the consumer follows government regulation especially for garbage disposal. For kitchen waste, they would normally package it with anylock bag sealers so the food residue will not decay so fast.

Last year, I was in Germany and bought several bags of anylock slide and store. Its the easiest and simplest way to store food in the refrigerator. You just have to put in a airlock bags, fold the upper portion, push the bag sealers towards the end and bingo food is preserve longer as it is airtight. In using bags, you can store more items in the freezer as it doesn't eat so much space.
