Tips Tuesday – Thank You!
Well I feel the need to thank you all for your support and perseverance through a tough weather week and still assisting us with removing over 60 bags from our community streets, parks and walking trails!
I am SSSOOOOO proud of our Green Family for participating in our annual Community Clean Up!
-JENNA AND HER CREW!!
I had noticed the weather had caused some interruption in our efforts to do our part, but luckily by the end of the week Mother Nature cooperated and gave us the opportunity to get out and make a difference! We had lot’s of family friends and local schools help out too so way to go!!
This coming weekend is the annual community clean up for Clair Hills! We are looking forward to helping out again!
Not only does it feel good to see a clean walking trail or park for everyone to enjoy but it feels good to be outside in the fresh air after a long winter! And sharing this experience with our kids is invaluable! It is up to us to instill in them the values and responsibility to our planet and each other.
I sat tonight talking to some family about local efforts to manage our garbage and recycling. A main theme seemed evident. Too many people are not doing enough, too many companies are not holding themselves accountable, and too many advertise being Green or Conscientious and it is simply ‘GreenWashing’. What is Green Washing? Finding a garbage and recycling receptacle requiring separation of refuse then looking in and seeing it all going into one garbage bag. Putting recyclables into blue bins and finding out it was redirected into landfills. Having our refuse shipped elsewhere to become someone else’s problem. What is the answer? Well here are a few and I hope you will share some of yours!
Reuse as many packaging items as you can, boxes, bags, bottles, jam and pickle jars make great Tupperware!
Fix things instead of being so quick to replace them especially household appliances that are lrge and take up valuable landfill space
Purchase less things that you think will make you happier, things wont make you happy
Purchase items with less packaging
Make sure you utilize all of the options at your disposal such as green bins and properly sorted blue bins
Cover your blue bins to insure your recycling doesn’t blow around
If you see someone ‘GreenWashing” call them on it. They think no one notices
I would love to share some our great ‘green’ Ideas! Please feel free to share on our facebook page!

So Earlier this week I wrote a letter to Mother Earth, well now it’s your turn!
Dear Human Race:
This Week HHDS participated in a community clean up. How many bags of garbage have you collected? Do you join your community on another date? If so when? and Thank You. If not the rest is for you.
Why not? What’s your excuse? Tired? Busy? Dead? HHHMMMM That last one could pose a problem but the rest of you I call Bull$#!*. Listen I get it, I have anywhere between 1-5 kids on any given day (Husband counts as one teehee) One Dog One Cat and a business, So I hear ya about being busy, BUT, Think about this for a minute.
This is an example I give my kids when they are negotiating whether or not to do their chores:
Imagine if Mother Earth Said,” Yeah you know what, I know you need water but I have a real important email to answer and I just don’t have the time…”
“Geez you’re hungry, well cant you make your own snack, I’m not going to be able to do that right now I’m busy spinning so….O you can’t make your own food, AHHH, well sucks to be you!!!”
Which brings me to another point! Ever hear the expression don’t $#!* where you eat? Um HELLO! We dump all this ‘Crap” into our water, pollute our ground and are scientifically exploiting our ability to grow food. So if YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT WHAT DOES THA MAKE US?? HHMMMM
Ok Ok, A little tough love here I know, and this usually isn’t my style but COME ON PEOPLE! There is no excuse good enough to not get off your @$$ and get out in nature and show Mother Earth you deserve your ALLOWANCE!
On that I leave you with this lovely link to some positive Eco News which our 5:00 news never reports, I hope this inspires you to know we ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE! Listen We spent one hour the other day picking up garbage and got 8 BAGS! so even one hour makes a difference! You can do it! Grab your kids, you boyfriend, your dog, your self and get out there and be Mother Natures Hero! RAH RAH GO YOU!!

Tips Tuesday – Garbage Collection Begins! Rain, Snow, Sleet or Shine or all of the above!
Well My Girls and I headed out for our annual Garbage Collection for HHDS!
Poor Morgan had been picking up Garbage all day but I was thrilled to have her come out again with Olivia and I!
This Picture was taken at the end of only one green space trail near our house! THREE BAGS FULL!!
After what seemed like a long haul, only 1 hour later we had collected 8 bags!
Trudging up from a pond near our home, we had only one bag left to fill.
We had taken recycling bags and garbage bags, but most of what we picked up was recyclable. The most we picked up was plastic water bottles. With all the lovely glass options, let’s all try to completely stop using these bottles ok? We were sad to find pockets of solo cups clearly left behind after fun gatherings, not so fun for us to pick up however.
I decided to write a quick apology note to Mother Earth, it goes as follows:
Dear Mother Earth
I am so very sorry that we have the nerve to create ‘things’ that cause you and your habitat illness and disease. I apologize for the scarring we cause you in damaging your surface with digging for oil, carving out for mining and cutting down your trees. I am so remorseful that we are poisoning your crystal blues lakes and steams.
I am embarrassed by our behaviour. I hope you will forgive us. I hope you will guide us to do what is right before it’s too late.
I vow right now to you that I will continue to do what I can to honour you and the gifts you so readily offer us.
I will write to you again, hopefully in a more joyous manner.
Again, Truly, Deeply, Sorry

Tips Tuesday – Guest Blogger Sherri Dmyterko
What’s in your emotional backpack? Just as we take care of our bodies by eating right and using products free of harmful chemicals, it’s equally important to consider how our thoughts affect our overall well-being.
I’m proud to be a part of the Hybrid Hair and Detox Spa team, where I work with clients to balance the energies of the body. In my energy healing sessions, I help a client to let go of emotional baggage that is weighing them down. Often people comment how they will feel lighter and happier after a session. I see toxic emotions as blackness in the body, and my healing techniques allow you to effortlessly unwind from anger, sadness, fear and stress.
What can YOU do right now to start your own emotional detox? The easiest thing is to get outside and go for a walk in nature, and leave the electronics at home. Rather than jamming in those earbuds, take the time to stroll down one of our many amazing trails and listen to the songbirds, the breeze blowing through the branches, and the soothing sounds of water bubbling in the creeks and rivers.
Take a few minutes and find a rock or a bench to sit down on and simply breathe in that fresh Spring air. Ask the Universe to take away your stress and lighten your load.
Emotional health and physical health go hand in hand.
