"I have never felt that anything really mattered but the satisfaction of knowing that you stood for the things in which you believed and had done the very best you could." - Eleanor Roosevelt

Earth Day

Earth Day is coming - April 22nd

What does this mean to me? Well, our house has already been certified as having a Natural Wildlife Preserve (ID# 22473). We already have two recycle bins from the City and we recycle all plastics, cardboard (toilet paper and paper towel rolls too), and cans. We take our newspapers to the local SPCA as well as old towels, sheets, and bath mats. Twice annually, we take all old chemicals, PC's, paint, etc. to a spot designated in the City for collection and then private companies foot the bill to safely collect and dispose of these toxic items. We have a compost bin and we try to landscape as environmentally safe as possible and use very little chemicals. Good old Ivory soap water mix takes care of most "challenges".

Consider this my public service announcement. Please look around your house and see what you can do to start being a little more green. I'm not suggesting anything radical, just common sense. Your planet will thank you.
