20 minute clean-up...go out and pick up trash for 20 minutes around where you work. Makes a difference. We're doing at my school this week!

Well I think I did my part today by mowing my lawn with my little electrical (long cord) mower, and pulling out lots of weeds instead of ever using any pesticide. I never use pesticide, but I just watched my neighbor, a woman, bring out a huge container with a hose attached spraying all over her yard, with no mask no gloves, nothing, and in shorts and bareless arms. Hello? Why do people not understand they are breathing in that stuff and its very dangerous if gets on their skin? The wind also blows it up and into the air..bad stuff! Glad I was in the house when I saw her doing this..shut my windows. We are so addicted to pesticide. I also don't use chemicals to clean my house haven't in years, I use Bon-ami, peroxide (instead of bleach it disinfects also)and green products to clean surfaces,etc..and I sure do love my ionic breeze machine! So quiet and much less expensive than using those noisey air cleaners that use up so much energy..so doing my part!

our town did a trash pick up. But they have made it such a production that it's almost hard to go pick up trash around the town.

So...we cleaned up our place. And I forgot to water the plants outside, so I conserved water. hehehehe

I sent you an e-mail, did you get it???
