Look what one local store collected for me! Yes, they (won't say who) are helping keep plastic out of the landfill~ I can't get everyone to do it so I will be very excited for the ones that do! Now off to make something with them (already got necklaces down but maybe some earrings and bracelet to match!)

This is how long it takes for things to decompose if just out there as litter~ it will never ever break down in a landfill as dirty is put over the trash which does not let any sunlight it to do it's job of breaking things down but the dirty ends up mummifying it! I got this from Keesta.com
Here’s how long it takes for commonly used products to biodegrade, when they are scattered as litter:
cotton rags 1-5 months
paper 2-5 months
rope 3-14 months
orange peels 6 months
wool socks 1 to 5 years
cigarette butts 1 to 12 years
plastic coated paper milk cartons 5 years
leather shoes 25 to 40 years
nylon fabric 30 to 40 years
tin cans 50 to 100 years
aluminum cans 80 to 100 years
plastic 6-pack shower holder rings 450 years
glass bottles 1 million years
plastic bottles forever

I have no Camera it's driving me up a wall! *& I can can't find any of my back up's~ oh take that back the one I found is no longer in working condition! My daughter claims not to have it but everytime I find it I discover over 100 pictures that she has taken of herself on it! So I have been using my phone which is a great camera but then you have to email them to yourself and for whatever reason that didn't seem to be working out for me the other day when I took over 50 pictures of stuff that I needed to post! Ok breathe deep and hopefully it will turn up!
