3 R Friday

Welcome to 3 R Friday

A weekly series of simple tips geared toward helping you darken your shade of green. Easily.

Reduce: Reduce your consumption of residual hormones, chemicals, antibiotics, & pesticides by drinking organic milk.

Reuse: Reuse “handles” from cupboards, drawers, old furniture, etc to make a coat/purse/bag holder: Creating Pretty Hooks for your coats and bags

Recycle: Recycle your gently used blankets, books, and stuffed animals with your local police department.

It is unfortunate but true that many times police are called to a scene in which children are present. Providing small items such as blankets, stuffed animals, & books is a wonderful way to make the children feel comfortable, lessen the stress, and provide a security item for them to cling too.

Last year my son’s class assembled ~160 “comfort kits" (baggies filled with a gently used blanket, stuffed animal, book, and picture) and presented them to our local police department. The “comfort kits” were placed in the trunks of police cars and handed out as needed.
What a great way to recycle!

Hope you found these tips helpful. Feel free to share any tips you may have.

Have a Great Green Weekend!
