Kids "reinvent The Environment"

Kids "reinvent The Environment" - by Wendy Mitchell

As the old saying goes, "one man's trash is another man's treasure," and now kids nationwide are taking something old and making it new and functional for a good cause-to protect the environment.While recycling has grown in general during the past 20 years, recycling of specific materials has grown even more drastically. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, 50 percent of all paper, 34 percent of all plastic soft-drink bottles, 45 percent of all aluminum beer and soft-drink cans, 63 percent of all steel packaging, and 67 percent of all major appliances are now recycled

To support future generations of recyclers, Doubletree Hotels' Teaching Kids to CARE initiative is educating elementary school students about their roles in caring for the environment by challenging them to create fun solutions that could some day save the Earth. Students will work hand in hand with teachers and hotel team members to "imagine" how they would turn recyclable household products into "eco-friendly" solutions that help the environment.

For those parents and teachers wanting to encourage their kids and students to increase their eco-friendly practices, here are a few tips:

1. No trash week-Challenge your family or class to lower their trash output. Several easy tips to follow include using reusable bags when shopping at the grocery store and bringing plastic storage containers (or even better, reused jars or plastic tubs) for leftovers with you when you eat out.

2. Buy recycled materials- Encourage kids to be environmentally accountable by being responsible purchasers. Recycled paper towels, plastic waste bags and inkjet cartridges are just a few of the items available. The EPA estimates that one ton of recycled paper also saves 2,000 kilowatt hours of electricity, 3,000 gallons of water and keeps 30 pounds of air pollution out of the sky.

3. Cut out bottled water-Each year more than 4 billion pounds of plastic bottles end up in landfills or as roadside litter. Plastic bottles also require massive amounts of fossil fuels to manufacture and transport. Instead, encourage the use of sturdy plastic bottles which can be repeatedly filled and washed.

4. Use the "off" switch-Save electricity and reduce global warming by turning off lights when you leave a room and powering off major appliances. Make a game of it and create a family or class chart and recognize efforts by tallying points for turning off lights and the television, etc. Reward kids with a special treat.

5. Recharge those batteries-Purchase rechargeable batteries and teach your children how to recharge batteries for their toys. This not only helps to reduce garbage, but also keeps toxic metals such as mercury (found in some batteries) from getting into the environment.

Burn The Fat 3 Steps To Fat Loss And Keeping It Off by Doug Philp

Burn The Fat 3 Steps To Fat Loss And Keeping It Off by Doug Philp

When most people consider losing weight and getting into shape brutal honesty predicts the vast majority will fail every time they try to burn the fat off.


Because virtually every single person who decides to lose weight goes on a diet. And 'going on a diet' also means there will come a time to 'go off the diet' too. The dirty little secret about dieting is you start and you stop diets. They are bound to make you fail in your goal to get fit.

So what does a person do? There is three things I recommend.

First, do not go on a diet. Crazy suggestion huh? Sure you might burn off fat quickly with a diet but you are going to most likely see that weight loss come right back. Here is another dirty little secret, the way you eat right now, this is a diet. Actually the way you eat at all times is your diet. And most of us have a very poor diet. This is why we are over-weight.

Second, change the way you eat. Take the time to learn the way to healthy eating. Discover what foods to avoid and those to eat regularly is the best place to start your research. I am not telling you to get so deep into studying that you never get to actually implementing the changes to your eating habits. Just find out how eating properly can help you obtain your goal of losing weight and getting physically fit.

Third, get your entire family involved with you in changing their eating habits too. And take this approach slowly. Trying to shove everything down their throat all at once will create rebellion. In fact, I would share with them the information you are learning about proper eating all along while you learn it yourself. Make this learning fascinating and watch your kids(the young ones at least) enthusiastically join with you. Your spouse and any teenage kids will be a different story as they will likely resist. In this case share with them how their participation will really help you fight your battle - watch them come around as a result.

There you go, three simple steps you can use today to get your family involved with you to burn the fat off, and get everyone into better shape. It's a simple plan for success but do not be fooled by that simplicity. And one that you can use for a lifetime.

Hair Removal Cream - Is it Right For You? by Patricia Mitchell

Hair Removal Cream - Is it Right For You? by Patricia Mitchell

Using a hair removal cream is one way to get rid of unwanted body hair. With all the options for hair removal out there, how do you decide which one is right for you? You should know that each method has its good and bad points and knowing some of those can help you determine whether the method will be a good one for you.
Hair removal creams or depilatories are creams or liquids that are applied to various areas of the skin to remove hair. Generally, the cream reacts with the protein structure in the hair so that the hair dissolves and can be washed away with water or wiped off with a washrag or cloth. You can get hair removal creams in most grocery stores or pharmacies. Some are also available by prescription from your doctor, particularly those that are used by women to reduce facial hair growth.
The Pros:
Hair removal creams have a number of advantages over other treatment methods. First, as mentioned above, they are widely available for most individuals and easy to find. You won't have to make appointments or worry about transportation to a treatment facility. Instead, you can use hair removal creams whenever you want in the comfort of your own home. This method can last between several days and several weeks depending on your hair growth rate, but it will generally last longer than shaving.
Another reason that people use hair removal creams is that the method is inexpensive. You don't need to shell out a lot of money for the creams. Even special formulations for the bikini area, face, or other sensitive areas will cost just a few dollars.
The Cons:
Hair removal creams can be messier than other options and the results do only last for a short period of time. In addition, individuals with sensitive skin can suffer from allergic reactions or other skin issues if they use particular creams. The method also tends to be less effective on course hair.
Although some people find the method useful, others find that other hair removal procedures work better for them. Experts recommend that if you are thinking about trying a hair removal cream, you should read the directions and follow them carefully. You may also want to do a small test area to make sure that the chemicals won't react with your skin.
The best hair removal option is the one that works best for you. For some individuals, a hair removal cream works very well, costs little, and can last up to several weeks. Other individuals will discover that another method works best for them.
