Welcome back to another beautiful Saturday with yours truly! By now all of you are well aware of the totally disjointed, and all over the place-ness that is my blog. I am constantly hit with new ideas for topics, and I hate to admit that I have little regard for maintaining any form of topic structure. For those of you that have been loyal readers thank you for bearing with me, and my rambling ways for as long as you have.
Welcome back to another very green Saturday with Shavara! I am happy to have kept your attention for what is now the 5thSaturday with me. If you’ve been following along thus far you know that my goal is to not only inform, but to entertain you with methods of reducing our environmental impact. The topics that call to me have no order or method behind why they are chosen; rather, I’m often inspired by what I have learned from my own sustainable journey.
OKLAHOMA CITY (June 1, 2018) – Fresh Paint Days (FPD) is an annual, free, revitalization program available to anyone living in any of Oklahoma’s communities. FPD is a program through Keep Oklahoma Beautiful (KOB) that provides community groups with free paint and a stipend to improve buildings in their area. Applications open June 1 and close July 31. Paint is delivered in late August throughout the state and projects are completed through the month of September.
Welcome back to another Saturday with Shavara green friends of Oklahoma. My goal, as always, is to blow your mind with information on ways we are impacting our environment and how that impact can be reduced. Last time we learned about ways to prevent plastic bags from entering into landfills where the life expectancy of the bag stretched to close to 1000 years. It only felt right that our next topic would be diving deep into the dirty, dark and pretty scary world of Landfills.
