Tree Hugger

I am a born and bred tree hugger. I love being outside! I love the oceans, the mountains, the forests, and I am working on loving the dessert. Right now it is too hot to love it. But try me in January when I am buried in snow and maybe my opinion will have changed. Anyways, recently as I have been blogstalking I have found several people posting about one of my favorite topics.
Recycling and Earth Awareness
Mrs. Saoud posted a new unit on Global Missions. She even included a freebie. Don't you love her? I do. :D Link over and check her out.
Mrs. B, Busy Bee also posted about TerraCycle. This is a program my school did last year, I just never knew what is was called. Basically you collect items that most people would consider trash and send them in, and then they send you a check. Granted I don't know a whole lot, because the PTA ran it last year, but it is something I am looking into starting at my new school.

  2. You know what is even better? Freecycle! It's great because there is 0% waste! My grandmother passed away, and after posting offerings of her belongings, most were taken within a few hours. We didn't have to fill a truck or throw anything away! You can also pick up free stuff - I got so many baskets, crates, and even a fish tank and bookshelf for my classroom! I've even seen coffee cans and egg cartons. There are groups all over the country, check it out! :)
