YNN's Rich Segal made another trip to TreeHouse
to speak with Jason Ballard about a couple of products that people can use in their attempt to keep 'green.'
The first product allows you to grow plants inside or outside your home. It's called a Woolly Pocket and is designed to be used as a living wall planter. Living wall planters can be expensive to install, so the Woolly Pocket is an alternative. The 'green' effect is that it is made out of recycled materials.
The other product is called a Weck Jar. Weck is the company that introduced home canning to the world more than 100 years ago. The jars can be used for just about anything and have a longer shelf life than plastic.
