Pocahontas' Earth Forum2 January 31, 2008 10:04 AM
Welcome to Pocahontas' Earth Forum
We live in a time of greatness, breakthroughs in science and spirituality, technology and space. Sometimes the discoveries made are amazing, yet can cause disruption to the beautiful world we live in. This
forum was given to Pocahontas because, she as a disney princess, lived
in a time when the world's enviornement was held sacred and clean. The
purpose of this special place is to gather together to honor the Earth
and protect the enviornment. Articles, Plant a tree links,
dedications, alerts, petitions, even a simple note to honor the world
we live on, is encouraged here. As sister Care2Princesses, we have
the connection, the love, the compassion and the nurturing ability to
join togethers as one to protect the Earth we live on.

Recycle your magazines, newsletters easily! November 21, 2008 8:39 PM
Here's the best way to recycle your old magazines:
Take them with you to your dentist appointment and leave them in the
waiting room. You can leave them in any doctor's waiting room, or at
the gym, or you can donate them to the public library, which can sell
them for pennies to benefit projects they are doing. Kindergarten
teachers and daycare teachers love them-kids can learn a lot, work on
their cutting and pasting, and have a blast making collages out of
them! Also, drop off English newsletters and magazines with groups
learning English. It's a great way to help them learn! If you get
Spanish, etc., magazines, the same groups would love to have them!
Just drop them off, and leave a post-it note on it saying "Pay it
forward." And there's always freecycle! http://www.freecycle.org
Don't just throw them away! Someone else will use it!
I will be donating to this org in honor of Mother Earth's Day. I hope a
few of you might join me. If you can't...well, get your own fruit trees
to plant in your backyard, to encourage wild birds. (Since I don't have a backyard, this works
better for me!) I love this concept! This organization plants fruit
trees in animal sanctuaries so the animals have fresh fruit and are
surrounded by beauty. They also plant fruit trees near homeless
shelters, food banks and schools. What a smart idea! Check it out!
