Lowe’s Hardware on Iverson Way gave us a discount on building materials. Henson’s Inc. who is a leader in wood waste recycling donated mulch and compost.

Caring wife and mom, who wants to change daily habits for improving the environment. I believe that each person can make subtle changes. Recycling is one of those subtle changes. Learning about how and what is recyclable can lower energy, water and natural resources. Our earth is limited with her resources. Be kind to her and she will be kind to us. Please think before you consume or throw away!
