Peezy’s April 2019 Post

Who loves a good rebate? Me! Did you know that The Woodlands Joint Powers Agency will give you a credit on your water bill when you purchase certain rain barrels, rain sensors, drip irrigation systems, smart controllers, and even native plants? They will! Just go to their website to get all the particulars: www.wjpa.org/services/rebates. You will get 50% of the purchase price, up to $150. That’s a lot of green!

Have you seen the new blue recycle bins around the church campus? I think they look nice! Maybe the pretty blue color and recycle logo will be a good reminder to deposit ONLY clean plastic and aluminum drink containers and paper. No food. No chocolate cake! No old toothpaste tubes, cigarette butts or broken pencils. That all goes in the trash. That’s it. I’ve had my say. I feel better now. Thank you.

Our congregation just took the unusual step of endorsing a bipartisan bill in the U.S. Congress, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. This bill aims to control carbon emissions and reduce greenhouse gases. Like the Presbyterian Church (USA) says, “With our concern for the planet goes our concern for the most vulnerable people living on it.” And those are the folks who get clobbered the most by climate change.

Always recycle paper, right? Well, not so fast! Did you know that brightly colored paper should not be put in recycle? That is because the dyes in the paper mix with all of the good paper and make the whole batch lower quality. The paper mills don’t like that. We want to keep the recycled product as pure as possible, so that it can be sold. The next time you have some “astrobright” paper, better to throw it in the trash.

Microbeads are common exfoliants, so you will find them in many skin care products. They do an okay job, but at a very high cost. You see, microbeads are so small that they pass right through water purification filters. And they are very good at absorbing toxins. So these little carriers of yucky stuff end up in the oceans and into our seafood. That’s good reason to stick with natural exfoliants. I know I sure will!

Peezy’s November 2018 Post

Fa la la la la! Time to dust off the Christmas decorations. This year I’m putting up LED lights. It will save electricity and money. And there are other benefits. LEDs are cooler than incandescents, which makes them safer. They have epoxy lenses, so they are sturdier. They last longer. I can attach 25 strings end-to-end without overloading a wall socket. And I will recycle the old broken ones at WCPC!
