    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.

    Can you recycle garden hoses?

    A friend told me that there was a news report that said most of our recycling was put in a landfill anyway. I guess because China isn’t buying are recycling anymore. I thought we were trying to reuse most of our recycling.

      Hi Angela, 

      This is why avoiding contamination of recyclables is so important. The amount of recyclables that end up in a landfill varies widely by municipality, but when it happens, it's most often caused by improper recycling at the household level causing contamination down the line.
