Live Green and Earn Points

    I gather them up, and take them to our local food bank, to use as mulch, and compost in their vegetable gardens. They go, to support a good cause, while saving space, and the air, by keeping them out of the landfill.

    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

    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.
