Meet Tangerine the cat, a fanciful feline for those of you who are devoted to or enslaved by a cat who is red, orange, ginger, marmalade or a bit rusty!
In celebration of my newest design AND the imminent return of summer here in the Northern Hemisphere, Tangerine invites you to take part in our June Giveaway by reviewing the 3 Rs.
Some may still cling to the notion that the 3 Rs refer to Reading, 'Riting. and 'Rithmetic, but apparently they haven't heard the news: SCHOOL IS OUT!
We're talking about the OTHER 3 Rs: Reduce, Re-use, and Recycle, in that order. In other words, Reduce your waste first (ie, avoid over-packaged products, compost food waste, etc ); Re-use an item instead of opting for disposable anything (ie use lidded glass containers to store leftovers instead of plastic throw-away containers); and Recycle (ie, when something does wear out, recycle every part of it that's possible).
TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY, please leave YOUR favorite way to Reduce, Re-use, or Recycle in the comments section at the end of this post. The best tips will be shared in future posts. Giveaway ends on the summer solstice, Monday, June 21 at 8 p.m. PST. At that time, one name will be drawn at random and the winner will receive his/her choice of ONE of the Susan Faye Beach Bags pictured below ($22.99 value), now available in my Cafepress Shop online.
These cotton beach totes are a good way to practice the 3 Rs. By re-using them for toting and shopping, you reduce the petroleum products needed to make plastic bags and reduce the amount of plastic bag bits ending up in our soil and our oceans. You can use them to carry your bottles to the recycle center!
One entry per household please. Make sure that I have a way to contact you in case you are the lucky winner, such as a link to your blog or e-mail address included in the comment.
Also, if you encounter trouble with the Comments feature, please send your entry to my e-mail --you'll find a link under my Profile.
Thanks for participating!
