You know the rules for recycling (what to recycle and what NOT to recycle). Many recycle bins have a list on the lid. What about when you just don’t know if an item should go in the recycle bin? If you don’t know, please put it in the trash. Contaminating the recycling stream can cause huge problems. And you don’t want to be problem causer. So “when in doubt, throw it out.” Thank you.

Holiday time is coming up, and I sure do like the treats! It is a great time to treat the birds too. You know we have lots of pine cones around here. Pick out one you like and cover it with peanut butter. Then roll it in a dish of unsalted sunflower seeds so that the seeds stick. Hang it from a tree that you can see from a window. Boom – bird feeder! A great source of food for the birds and entertainment for the holidays. Enjoy!

I was creeping around the church campus the other day, just looking at the many lively growing things! And the happy butterflies! You know, I think working for a healthier planet is a little bit like defeating the COV-19 virus. How? Well, in each case the action you take today makes a difference for tomorrow. I am going to do my part today, so that we can have a healthy, happy tomorrow!

Did you know that caterpillars turn into butterflies? They do! To do that they need to eat right! It is good nutrition that helps them make this magical transformation. This past April, our church learned this lesson, big time! You can read about what happened to a project for Earth Care Sunday when a huge number of Monarch butterflies came to town. Just read “The Tale of the Very Hungry Caterpillars.”

Are you hunkering down to defeat the baddie COVID-19? I sure am! Many places are closed right now. But I have a surprise for you. The Woodlands Township Recycle Center on Research Forest Drive is still open 4 to 7pm on Wednesdays and 9am to 2pm on Saturdays. Wow! That means you can continue to take your clean glass bottles. It is a MUCH better way than in your regular curbside bin. Let’s do it!

I am a little jealous of pollinators. Why? Because people LOVE them! Pollinators like bees, butterflies and other insects are essential for the health of plants; plants that are beautiful and plants that are delicious. People even grow special flowers to attract pollinators. My diet includes insects, some of which are pollinators. So sometimes I get into trouble. But I have other good qualities! Really! I promise!

There are some things that you always put in the trash. One example is dental floss. It is good that you use dental floss! But please do not flush it down the toilet. Why? Because dental floss really gums up (ha!) the works in wastewater systems. It never breaks down and causes big tangles and clogs in the system. I guess the bottom line is that we do not use our toilets or sinks as trash cans. I can remember that.

What is an un-paper towel? This is a good question to ask a grandparent, because they have great old-school answer. Cloth is what they used all the time for clean up around the house. Cloth rags do a really good job of cleaning and soaking up spills. And you just throw them into the wash with the clothes. Each time you use cloth instead of paper, you are doing something good. And it is EASY PEEZY!

News Flash! The Precinct 3 Recycling Center on Pruitt Road now takes all kinds of clean Styrofoam. Yay! Those to-go containers, egg cartons and coffee cups just need a little wash to avoid going in the trash. Helpful hint: If you bring packing peanuts, please use a container you can leave with the center. Those little buggers like to fly all over the place when they are transferred! I really love this new development.

The heat is upon us, and it is time to get in shape! Yes, your body; we all need that. But also your irrigation sprinklers. Are they spraying the concrete? Are any heads broken? Is there a leak? Is the timer set for only your watering days? Are you faithful about turning them off when it rains? Have you looked into the benefits of drip irrigation? So many ways to save our precious water. Now let’s just do it!
