Earth Day 2016

Posted on April 20, 2016

Happy Earth Day! April 22, 2016 is the 46th year of celebrating Earth Day. Earth Day is not just about one day a year but rather to bring focus on our Earth and keep it going all year long. Whether you are planting a tree, attending a rally, picking up litter, recycling materials or bringing awareness to our precious Earth in some other way, the key is to DO something.

As they say, every little bit helps and our Earth needs every one of us to do our part. If you are a long time reader of this blog, you know I love to recycle materials and use them to create new and useful items. I recycle plastic bags, plastic packaging, t-shirts, old linens, cassette and video tapes, and denim jeans. I also reclaim yarn from old sweaters and repurpose plastic lids, rings and old purse handles. I try and do my part which I know is a small thing and again when we all do a little, it can make a big difference.

So on this Earth Day 2016, try recycling, repurposing, or reusing something. If you need ideas, I have free tutorials and patterns on how to use many different recycled materials on my blog. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact me here.

Most of all, Happy Earth Day and lets celebrate and honor of beautiful planet today and every day!

    Do you accept cassette tape if mailed to you? I am cleaning out my kids old tapes, etc. that they no longer want. My recycling company will take the hard cases but not media tape.

    Appreciate what you do.

    Colleen – I have so many tapes now and can’t take any more. People ask me often if I can take them and I have so many. Check with Goodwill in your area as some of them take and recycle the tapes. Otherwise Greendisk.com is another option for recycling them but there is a cost. Best wishes and thanks for thinking of me.
