This combination extended the longivity of my equipment by many,many hours and miles as well.In addition we began using foam on all of our air filters to extend the life of the filters,most importantly the life of our equipment.The greenbacks saved offset our fuel costs considerably,never mind how many air and oil filters didn’t end up in the landfill where they do not decompose at all!
Thanks a bunch Sammy Samuelson

Recycling including recycling of water is a critical one. Another is to ask corporations to reduce the amount of packaging they use in their products and make what they do use recyclable, then see how many of them will pay attention. One thing that our People First Chapter did last Wednesday was to do a Community Conversation for the CDC on the issue of chemical exposures, another critical problem. We supported using natural indrediants for pesticides and laundry degergent and other things instead of manufactured chemicals. WE also supported the idea that Orange County Health Department, California Department of Health Services, CalEPA, USEPA, and CDC set up task forces to work up-down-and across organizational lines and between and among organizations in efforts leading to significantly reduced chemical exposures. We also are planning to ask Regional Center and Area Board 11 to develop a client outreach program for everyone in independent and supported living programs and their staffs and staff at group homes on how to make choices in the kinds of products you buy to get those using fewer chemicals and to tell otherways to reduce the risks of chemical exsposure. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

Yes, it was a great experience. I like the 4th R. It can be sold with the right info. Regards from DC.

By coincidence, I was part of an enjoyable middle school career day this week too. My remarks about recycling always include a fourth R: Refuse. It’s not an easy sell with kids–but worthy of their consideration, no? Regards from Phila.

In my country, when I watched TV, the students also acted like that. They planted some of vegetables at around their schools. But, actually, they have handicap when they back home. The parents are not supporting them. The parents have many reasons. The main reason is the culture, that the kids must to heed of them. Now, depend of their parents…. I hope, wherever, they are will appreciate their son abilities…!!!
