Thinking about….

Black Pine Tar …. This is “The Finest Stuff” 100% Organic: Authentic Pine Tar also referred as Stockholm tar is a pure, natural wood preservative made in Sweden. Pine Tar has been used since ancient times for creating a water repellent vapor barrier on wood and rope and for its gentle antiseptic effect. Pine Tar is used for wood preservation on utility and fence poles, cottages, splint roofs, boats et cetera. Pine Tar is an excellent wood preservative and substitute for pressure treated wood. Works well for preserving wood used underground. Use this recipe to thin Pine Tar with Purified Organic linseed oil to obtain faster penetration and avoid stickiness. Apply warm if possible. Note: do not apply on skin

BLOG STATS As of 01.29.2017 onward have been counting the number people who have read each post. WHY CUT PLASTIC About 100 million tons of plastic are produced each year and much of it is used to make one-use, disposable items. Because plastic doesn't biodegrade these items, though only used for moments can last for decades, centuries, possibly forever. We are creating ever lasting rubbish in unsustainable amounts. It is polluting the environment, maiming even killing animals, poisoning fish and may be poisoning us.
