Live Green and Earn Points

    I do not know the last time I needed to even purchase a new pen or pencil!! Pens are handed out like candy for marketing purposes I don't go out of my way to get them but have inadvertently ended up with them. Then add on the fact my wife and I dragging them home on accident from work. I think I even have pens, pencils, markers, highlighters left from high school and that was 20 plus years ago. I know I am not referencing recycling but my point is I am not buying into new ones.

    I take pens and markers apart and use the ink to make alcohol ink for art journals and I use the plastic tubes in some pens for the base of paper beads. Thus recycling paper.

    Please do NOT throw away your mascara wands. Instead, clean JUST THE WAND with dawn soap, place them in a ziploc bag and mail them to a Wildlife Refuge accepting donations. These little wands are able to be upcycled to clean away oil, larvae, fly eggs, mites, infections, mud and other contaminants from wildlife. Works great for medical care and wound treatment

    Pick your refuge to mail to:

    Appalachian Wild
    P.O. Box 1211
    Skyland NC 28776


    Wildlife Wands
    P.O. Box 1586
    Southwick, MA 01077.

    I have been reusing the washable markers bought for the grandkids. Dip tips in water regularly and cap. Goes a long way.

    I make Sharpies or other permanent markers last longer by soaking tip in rubbing alcohol. You may see tiny bubbles coming from the tip of the pen- that's air being displaced. It might right a lighter shade but it's still quite usable.
