If you think that paying a fee for the bag you put your purchases in would never happen (after all, they want you to shop in their store, right?), think again. In Minneapolis they are voting on whether businesses should start charging for bags. This is why and here are my reasons I have trouble using a reusable bag.
While I was emceeing the Northland Community Wellness Day my table was directly across from the Lake Superior College's Dental Hygiene program and they were handing out toothbrushes. The toothbrushes were made from 100% recycled plastic, like yogurt cups. How cool is that?
The time has come to dispose of your Christmas tree, get those lights and decorations off of it before it becomes a fire hazard, and WLSSD makes it so convenient with a dozen drop off sites to choose from.
Go green with more than your tree this year! Have you ever felt guilty to read a Christmas Card and toss it to the side? Think about it, someone thought you special enough to buy, write, address and spend money on a stamp to wish you a happy holiday. Feel guilty no longer, instead upcycle or reuse your Christmas cards. Learn how with the Duluth Public Library.
Even if you're an avid online shopper you can take advantage of buying holiday gifts that have been handcrafted by our local artisans. Gifts for both genders are represented and I just bet you can add to the list and help with ideas. You might even be a crafter yourself...
My craft room looks like total chaos and one reason is that it's hard to get rid of anything, ANYTHING! But, as I continue to do craft projects, I keep accumulating crafting supplies that I didn't use. The Duluth Public Library had a great idea and turned it into an event that we can all benefit from.
