    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

    OR

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

    After an extensive road trip we found we had accumulated a lot of maos. I used these to wrap Christmas presents. Everyone loved it an d we spent hours discussing where their maps were from !

    Now, if we could get more businesses into recycling the many pieces of paper they use.

      I publish a free local magazine and everything I use gets recycled from the office to the magazines. Every month I collect them and bring new ones, and bring them all into the recycling center. Unfortunately there are other magazines that think making money is all that matters and don’t put in the effort. So I take pictures when I see huge stacks of them in garbage cans and blast them on their social media pages. I’ve been recycling since the 90’s. If I can, they can.

    thermal paper (used almost ubiquitously for cash register receipts) is NOT recyclable. This stuff contains BPA and is a health risk. It should be kept out of the recycling stream. Only exception are receipts from Whole Foods, which is printed on BPA-free paper, distinguishable by the paper's light orange tint.
