Yep it is the 40th Earth Day!
OK I am a recycling NUT! my recycle big is always full my trashcan hardly ever full! when we finally get our house my sis recently told me our local waste management will give you 2 recycle bins at no extra cost! Love it! my garage sadly to say has huge black trash bags of cans and bottles etc cuz well i can get money for those he hee
But for reals I hate things like Styrofoam...hate it!
Hate throwing away anything plastic because well its worse than Styrofoam
and I hate when people just throw away electronics, batteries, light bulbs (the fluorescent ones) because those things need to be disposed of properly
And my hubby and I and my parents and my uncles wife are all working on our own home gardens as well.
Don't get me wrong I am not perfect I don't have a hybrid or electric car almost got one but just too pricey one day when prices go down I will so get one but for now my good ole Corolla gets great gas mileage at least, and ya know organic foods are good but I don't buy all organic once again...recession, can't afford it. You know and thats the truth, but I do try to do the little bit I can and especially all us crafters, all the papers we go through I always have tons of scraps or mistakes that go in the trash and most of that paper can be recycled.
SO in Honor of Earth Day...and our Spring Break we have been taking I have another special Freebie!!! This is a one day only sneak peak deal!
I have the Whole World in My Hands
Image was finally removed 4-25-10
so you had a few extra days to snatch it up
It will be in the store 5-1-10
Make sure you double click her to get the full resolution version.
She is a brand new image that is free for today only and then she will be up for sale in the store on the 1st along with some great new image's you'll start seeing this weekend! So snatch her up while you can! ...I know your probably going hmmmmm she looks familiar?!?!? lol well she is! Baby Bump was on of my 1st ever digi's I brought here to SSD when I opened and well she's a lil sad and not so smooth along the edges like many of my pre halloween images and that is just because I used a different computer editing technique, and soon I will probably be taking all those oldies but goodies away and replacing them with fresh new images, and so I thought this was a great way to freshen up and change and revamp and modernize baby bump so she can stay with us a bit longer!
So Happy Earth Day everyone!
don't forget your freebie, and maybe take an extra step for our mother earth today pick up that piece of trash someone threw or dropped on the ground, don't throw away recyclable bottle or can in the trash if their isn't a special bin make an effort to bring it home with you.... maybe ride your bike or walk instead of take the car, but every little bit helps:)
PEACE AND LOVE!
