Exciting News!

I have some very exciting news that I learned today! Our city is now offering mainstream recycling! The first pick up will be on Earth Day! I am SO happy!
My patron Saint that I chose for Confirmation 3 short years ago is Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha. She is the patron of ecology. I chose her as my saint because we have much in common. Her and I both are part Iriquois Indian. We both have very bad vision (mine is corrected by lenses). She saw God in the Earth and I do too. She is the patroness of ecology, I am an Earth lover!
I admit that I am not the best "tree hugger" even though I do think that recycling is the way to go. I am hoping that having the recycling available in my front yard will encourage me to be more eco-conscious. With this program I can recycle:
newspaper
magazines
phone books
catalogues
cardboard boxes
food boxes
shoe boxes
office paper
junk mail
aluminum cans
steel or tin cans
#1 and #2 plastics

All I have to do is have them packed in a black trash bag and sitting by the road on Thursdays! YAY!

Thanks for stopping by! The week of Earth Day, we will be doing some fun activities so check back!
