Tips Tuesday! You can’t and shouldn’t miss these of all Tuesdays Tips!
For the next two weeks our ‘tips’ will be referring to our Two week Garbage clean up Community Detox!
The fact that you are supporting our Green Business already speaks magnitudes of you as a human being! This creates awareness and strength to the Eco movement! But don’t stop there! Here will be a few tips on how you can be and share more Eco Awareness! Remember, where you spend your hard earned dollars is a form of voting to our Political Constituents. We are stronger together, let’s make our voices heard!
For the next two weeks our HHDS Green Family will be collecting garbage in our community and we ask for you to help us! We are keeping a running tally through out the Clean up so message us on Facebook and to email@example.com with your tally to add to ours! As an added bonus this year check out Amanda Weber’s Vibrant Living Wellness Center FREE ‘Detox your Brain’ for two weeks April 22 to May 6th as we clean out or ‘Defragment’ our inner world along with our outer world! We are intrinsically connected to our planet. By creating more awareness of self we automatically begin to acknowledge our connection to our planet and all things . The sign up page is here http://vibrant-living.ca/braincleanse/
The focus is on cleansing your brain, it is a gentle, food-based cleanse which will allow all participants to enjoy the benefits of a cleanse without the obligation to purchase any kits or supplements. We’ll focus on eating whole foods (recipes supplied!) and enjoy daily inspirational videos with guided meditations and mindfulness exercises all aimed at helping to increase your success!

‘As Within So Without’ ~Hermes Trismegistus~
Much of the garbage flying around and ending their travel in our waters is from garbage day and recycling bins and garbage bins tipping over in the wind on garbage day!
Help out your Waste Engineers out to make their job easier, get more recycling bins if you have to and separate your paper, plastic and metals, by doing so you make their sorting easier faster and idling trucks minimize toxin expulsion. Also overflowing bins are targets for flying debris! On windy days or any day, cover each recycling bin with a piece of cardboard cut to fit the top of your bin (Cereal boxes broken down works well) and place a reasonably sized weight\rock on top. I have been known to place my garbage bags on top of the bins too to prevent garbage escape!
Please feel free to share with us unique ways you have come up with to prevent litter or any other form of Environmental thinking with us so we can share with our friends!! In closing please enjoy these thought felt comments from many wise Eco Leaders
