Reduce, reuse, recycle — this newspaper!

  America Recycles Day is next Thursday, Nov. 15, and this is a perfect time to think about your recycling and sustainability habits. Are you incorporating the “reduce, reuse, recycle” mantra in your daily life? You bet you are, just by reading this newspaper!

  If you toss this paper into a recycling bin when you’re done with it instead of a garbage can, you’re saving trees and landfill space. But by buying the paper in the first place, you’re also providing a market for recycled goods: All Feather Publishing Co. newspapers are printed on paper with 40 percent or more recycled content. This is essential, because without a way to keep recycled materials in the production chain, recycling doesn’t do any good.

With shorter days and a chilly nip in the air, we know fall has arrived and winter is not too far off.

As the season changes, so do the habits of wildlife. Bears stock up on calories for winter hibernation, birds migrate to warmer climates and wild turkeys seem to come out in droves.

While these wild game birds may seem harmless and approachable, they can cause problems. Many homeowners can’t resist feeding them. What starts out as innocent fun can become a nuisance if the birds start destroying flower and vegetable gardens, leaving their droppings on patios and decks or roosting on cars where they may scratch the paint.
