Rekindle Candle Is The Candle Holder That Creates Your Next Candle.

Rekindle Candle - The candle that can 'almost' burn forever.

The Rekindle Candle holder from Benjamin Shine is a simple and brilliant product that turns normally wasted candle wax into a new candle. Here’s more on the Rekindle Candle from Benjamin Shine:

“Rekindle Candle is a candlestick holder, which collects the melting wax to form a new candle. As the candle burns, melting wax drips down from the candle and accumulates inside the transparent stem where a length of wick is centrally located. Once full, the new moulded candle can be removed from the central section to start the process again.”

The Rekindle Candle holder won’t give you candles that burn forever but it would be great item to put in your home emergency kit and camping box. It’s great for everyday use too because everyone will monitor the Rekindle Candle. When it goes out, you can open the plastic holder and rekindle the new candle. [Gizmodo]

The ‘Xeriscaping With Burton Knight’ Show Canceled Too Early In Hotter And Drier Dallas Texas.

Burton Knight - XeriscapingBurton Knight, resident of Junius Heights in East Dallas, decided to proactively deal with Texas’ water shortage by xeriscaping it; he removed his lawn and replaced it with rocks and native low-water consuming plants and cacti. Unfortunately, his neighborhood’s Landmark Commission voted on March 4th that Mr. Knight had to bring back the grass because they didn’t like how his lawn looked and he has said that he’ll comply. According to city planner Carolyn Horner: There are historically appropriate and acceptable ways to save water, she said. “This isn’t it.”

Nuts! Imagine if every law and ordinance was guided solely on the idea that there are historically appropriate and acceptable ways to… deal with food safety? Healthcare? Witches? I think the land commission in Dallas needs to update their thinking and consider revisiting Mr. Knight’s lawn-free, low-water consuming yard. His case might be the jolt they need to help keep Dallas from completely drying up and turning back into Mr. Knight’s xeriscaped yard. [Dallas Morning News via Treehugger]

Asking ‘What Good Shall I Do This Day?’ Is The Best Way To Start Every Day. Thanks Ben Franklin.

What good shall I do this day?  -  Ben Franklin
Good posted a page from Ben Franklin’s daily schedule and pointed out how he asked himself each day ‘What good shall I do this day?’ and ended each day with ‘What good have I done today?’ Everyone can define good differently but using it as a simple daily motivator is brilliant. It’s not a daily affirmation; it’s more of a daily motivation.

We’re going to tweak this a little and add it to our daily schedule as ‘What Jubbling shall I do this day?’ and so far, not showering and composting the coffee grounds are on our list. Still have 12 hours to go! [Good]

We wrote about repurposing wood pallets for wedding tables in our post “And I Pronounce You Jubbling” back in 2011. Here are so more ideas from RenewPurpose that don’t require instructions; viewing the final repurposed pallet-product and adding a little stain or paint is all you need to duplicate these ideas. If you get a chance, check out their iDevice cases and handbags made from repurposed tire rubber. Pretty cool stuff. [RenewPurpose via Good]
