Today I had Mirena put in. The process was slightly more painful than what I thought it would be, and since I’ve left the doctor’s I’ve had cramping 🙁 I’m not a happy camper today. Hopefully my body gets used to it quick and it stops hurting.

I will be watermarking all my pictures I put up that I’ve taken. I have run into bloggers using my images for posts like mine. I may be bearly starting out but I DO recognize that is stealing. Go take your own pictures when you represent a company please. If your going to review for them start honestly not by taking from other bloggers.

TIP 14: Snack Wrappers

FACT
Most candy and snack wrappers are made up of mixed materials, making it difficult and expensive to recover useful materials during recycling. As a result, many waste management companies, manufacturers and recycling facilities tend to turn their backs from snack wrappers.

DO SOMETHING
Eco-conscious folks have thought of creative ways to repurpose candy and snack wrappers. We even included candy wrappers in our Ultimate Reuse Challenge, and our staff came up with some pretty good reuse ideas. Also, upcycling company TerraCycle turns this hard-to-recycle packaging into stylish accessories and useful products. The company even pays YOU for your materials

TIP 13: Yoga Mats

FACT
Made of materials such as natural rubber, plastic, PVC or latex, most yoga mats are recyclable. In 2008, more than 50 percent of mats collected were upcycled into other products, and more than 30 percent of mats collected were donated to local community programs.

DO SOMETHING
Yoga studios around the country are embracing the idea of mat recycling and donation. If your studio does not participate or you are a home practitioner, Recycle Your Mat has mail-in programs for all types of mats as well. JadeYoga is also another viable option for donating and reusing your mat. Or, get crafty and check out other cool reuse projects for yoga mats.
