    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.

    Compost them! We love the compost that they make for our family garden!

    I take all of my leaves to the High Plains Food Bank in Amarillo, where they use them to make compost for their gardens. This helps them to produce more vegetables for the 120+ programs, such as Snakpak4Kids, Kids Café, the many food distribution points, spread out over the 29 counties of the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles.

    I just took them 5-33 gallon trash bags, full of crushed leaves, weighing about 35 pounds each. And I will have about 2 more bags when I am done.

    We actually did nothing one year just to see what would happen.after the last freeze we raked them up and to our surprise we had the only green lawn in the neighborhood.

    We live in a forest and the quantity of leaves is huge. So I blow them back into the forest -- and the layer of leaves =, mulch, compost, etc. from years of doing this, is now at least a foot deep! The fun part is that the forest supports deer, and small beasts -- rabbits, chipmunks groundhogs, turkeys, etc. -- no predators tho.
