    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Hold it! Recycle That.

There are many times each and everyday where we throw away items that could be recycled without any thought. Plastic bottles get thrown in the garbage can, plastic separators from six packs are tossed on the ground, and plastic bags are thrown away in groves. Now, you may just be one person, but that’s where it starts. If each one of us works to be dedicated to recycle items each day, the environment will benefit down the line. It is true that in some places, recycling services are unavailable and waste disposal constitutes only garbage. What do you do in these circumstances? Reuse and re-purpose! Here are some items that are handy for reuse:

-Plastic bags- Instead of throwing them away, use them for small wastebasket bags, organizing supplies for crafts, and as totes

-Water bottles- Reuse them by refilling them for use for multiple days or create children’s art projects with them

-Old CDs- Use them for interior decorations and art projects

-Print Cartridges- Bring them to a retailer such as Walgreens and have them refilled with ink. Helps the environment and is wayyy cheaper to fill!

-Paper- Cut up old sheets of paper for scratch paper, use paper bits for scrapbooking, or use them for art collage

-Aluminum cans- Crush them and bring them to a local can donation center (almost each town has one) or use them for something fun….like hockey pucks for boot hockey!
