Peezy’s October 2017 Post

I am going to be a vampire for Halloween! That reminds me of “energy vampires,” those evil ghouls that suck electrical power from your appliances when you aren’t using them. How to defeat them? Unplug when not using your devices (power strips make this easy), set electronics to low power or sleep mode whenever possible, and when upgrading always choose ENERGY STAR. Together we can save lots of watts!


Peezy’s September 2017 Post

Texas, our Texas! What a wonderful place to live. I am a native, you know. And today I want to celebrate all of the natives! Did you know that planting native trees, bushes and flowers in your yard is a HUGE benefit to our state. The natives save water and nurture the living landscape for birds and other local animals. They love on our state! If you want to see some good examples, just drop by the WCPC Prayer Garden.

Today I am going to talk trash. Yes, garbage is something that we just want to ignore. Toss it and forget it! But did you know that you can inventory your trash, for a kind of “life habits” measurement? What items are in your trash? Weigh a weeks’ worth of routine trash occasionally. Is your household reducing waste or increasing it? Knowledge is power! What is your trash telling you?

Paper or Plastic? Does this question make you pause? Well, it should, because it is not easy to answer. It turns out, there are environmental costs to either choice. So the answer may depend upon what you plan to do with the bag after using it. Choose the bag you would reuse and/or recycle responsibly. Maybe the better question from the checker would be, “Do you have your own bag?” You know the answer to that one!

Did you know that some consumers make buying choices partly based on the packaging? Yes, because sometimes what they see is just too much waste! Suppliers are beginning to pay attention, and many products are now packaged more sensibly. But we have a long way to go. So the next time you shop, take a look at the package that your item comes in. Will that weigh in on your decision of which item to buy?


Peezy’s April 2017 Post

This is my friend Billy Bee. He and his cousins are super heroes for humans (and insects!). You see, these little buzzers are responsible for pollinating over 40% of the food we eat. So they are important little workers. We must not let them die out! Yes, they have stingers. But if you don’t bother them, they will mind their manners around you. So let’s give a big shout-out to Billy and his hard-working friends in the field!
