Recycling is good for the planet and that’s excellent feng shui. But how far can you take recycling? Architect Karl Wanaselja took a bunch of junk cars and built a magnificent home in Berkeley, California. See the full story at Treehugger.com link below:

If you’re an artist or creative entrepreneur, you may have heard of towns across America giving homestead tax incentives to artists to come gentrify neglected neighborhoods. Paducah,Kentucky famously revived itself into such a town. And with cities such as Detroit crumbling, other cities are following suit and welcoming artists with open arms to turn their urban feng shui around.

If you’ve been reading Feng Shui By Fishgirl for a long time, you know that plants add ch’i (energy) literally by pumping oxygen into the air. They act as a natural filter to clean and purify air. As long as your plants are thriving, they are great feng shui. If they are stragglers and have lots of wilted, dead leaves it is time to replace them. Round shaped leaves are best for feng shui but sharp and spikey can be used in the Fame & Reputation area.
