Recycle newspaper! Newspaper can be recycled in many ways. In the winter I use newspaper as kindling for my wood furnace. I roll several sheets into a tube and then put a knot in it. In the spring I make little paper pots out of strips of newspaper to start my seedlings. I use a special wooden tool called a potmaker to do that. Then when it's warm enough to put my seedlings into the ground I use newspaper as a mulch to make paths in my garden. I use several sheets to make a thick layer, and it's good to wet them so they don't blow away. I then cover the newspapers with grass clippings and leaves so they stay moist and don't blow away when as the paper dries out. Bay the end of the season the paper is digested into the dirt. There are many other uses for newspaper, these are just a few of my favorites.

The Rachael Carson Homestead offers environmental education programs which advances Rachel Carson's environmental ethic. I like very much that Rachael Carson knew how important it is for all of us to take time to observe and wonder about the plant and animal communities around us.


(Hi Beth, Hi Harry, I really enjoy this Contest. A very original way to raise awareness. I'll be spreading the good news not only for environment but for Harry's talents too !)

Turn off the lights when you leave a room and if there is no one else left in the room. Of course the best way to save energy is to switch to fluorescent lighting , they produce more light but use less energy and even last longer than incandescent ones.

The SOS Children Villages shape orphans' future. I've visited one in Madagascar when I was 10 and the friends I made there never left my heart.


Hi Beth, thanks for the thumbs up on my blog. It's natural to add you to my blogroll because I maintain a few websites extra-professionally for a few Ngo's and am passionate about the application of social media. I would love to be able to discuss these aspects with you in the near future but while waiting, will be following you here so as not to ask you stupid questions. I will be launching my own business in a few days time for the fun of doing so (I work in local government for 90% of my time)and my business will be promoting social media. I'll get back to you soon.
