Earth Day is April 22nd. I don’t go over board with promoting earth friendly things here on Xtreme, but this week is a good time to bring it up. We each need to do our own part, whatever that part may be so that our children’s children have a clean earth to live and breathe on. We, as a family, do a lot of recycling, re-using and donating so that others can re-use. How about you? Do you participate in the 3 R’s: Reduce, reuse and recycle?
One thing you might want to check in your area is a collection site for Capri Sun juice pouches and plastic drink caps. (I am collecting my Boost bottles from the great deal we got awhile back. A school teacher will be HAPPY to have these!!) These can all be used for various art projects & crafts.
