I posted Tuesday about two surprises in the mail. Today I've got two more surprises. Not in the mail...but deposited at our door. Aren't they great looking?!
Confession. I have not been a recycler. However.......I will be now. Our waste management company and our rural little city have a new agreement.

A little bit of a change in the way we do things, but I do admit this is a good thing.
The following facts have been floating around in the twittering/blogging world. Check them out.
Fact: About 900,000,000 trees are required to feed America's paper consumption each year, according to the Clean Air Council.
Fact: With over 90% of US households taking advantage of the convenience of paper towels we produce over 3,000 tons of waste each day.
