Peezy’s March 2018 Post

The good: Chlorine helps keep our drinking and swimming water safe. The bad: Chlorine released from manufacturing enters streams and lakes. The ugly: The resulting chemicals are persistent and toxic to both people and wildlife. What to do? Look for unbleached products in the store. These go way beyond paper and flour and toilet tissue. Just look! How many different unbleached products can you find in your store?

Peezy’s February 2018 Post

I don’t know how old I am. But I do know that I am likely to be jumping around and eating bugs for a year or so. That’s NOTHING compared to plastic! Did you know that plastic stays around for up to a thousand years! Wow! That means every plastic bottle or cup that we throw away just stays and stays. No wonder our landfills are getting full and our oceans are filling with plastic debris. Something to think about.


Peezy’s January 2018 Post

I sure like being with my friends! And I found a way to spend even more time with them. What is it? Carpooling! Yes. If we are going to the same event, I pick up the phone and ask, “Do you want a ride?” They almost always say, “Yes.” And there we go. We have fun at the event, and we have fun riding there and back. And, guess what? We save gas, and we save on air pollution. Wins all around!


Peezy’s December 2017 Post

The perfect Christmas gift. What is it? Well, I have a great idea for you. It is called a Do Together Gift. When you replace a “thing” gift with a Do Together Gift, you have the fun of spending time with the people you love. What is something that you would like to do with a family member? Write it on a card, and give that as your gift. You cut down on clutter and more stuff. And you give the very best gift of all: YOU!


Peezy’s November 2017 Post

Nine year-old Milo Cress has alerted us to the damage plastic straws do to our environment. Wow! Smart kid! He loves wildlife and sea life so much that he has started a campaign to reduce their use. Do you always need one? No. But you probably always get one. So this is a shout out to support a “straws upon request only” policy at your favorite restaurant.That will go a long way toward cleaning up our beautiful earth!


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!
