5 Things You Probably Didn't Know You Could Recycle


5 Things You Probably Didn't Know You Could Recycle

When you think of recycling, glass bottles, newspaper, soda cans, or plastic juice containers may come to mind. However, there are a slew of items that you could be recycling that may not have crossed your mind. Here are five items you may not know you can recycle.

Carpet

You’ve re-decorated and installed brand new carpet, so what do you do with the tired looking stuff that you’ve replaced? Do you check the trash schedule for the next large item pick-up day? With a little research there is a good chance you will find a local company who can take the old carpet -- as well as the padding -- off your hands for recycling. If you have unused rolls, a local non-profit may be able use it. Other flooring types are also sometimes accepted.

Bottle Caps and Wine Corks

Typically, bottle caps and wine corks are thrown in the trash as soon as you’ve finished your beverage. Did you know that when you recycle plastic bottle caps, which are made of materials valuable in the import/export industry, you can often leave them on their original bottle to be recycled if your service allows? As for corks, there are some organizations that will re-use them as a replacement for petroleum-based products.

Crayons

It doesn’t take long for that fresh box of 64 crayons to be turned into broken, smudged little micro-versions of their former selves. Instead of tossing the colorful bunch, consider sending them to a recycling program where they can be used to create new crayons. You don’t even have to remove the wrappers before sending.

Bras

Having a good fitting bra is important, which can lead to regular replacement of your lingerie. However, that brassiere with the slightly stretched out band doesn’t have to go to the trash. There are many organizations that will accept it and get it to a woman in need, whether she’s in a local shelter or residing in a country half a planet away.

Trophies

You may no longer feel the need to display that ultimate Frisbee trophy on your mantle, but there is also no need to toss it with Tuesday’s trash. Many manufacturers will accept old trophies for distribution to nonprofit charity organizations. The trophy can also be recycled and utilized in the creation of new trophies and other such items.

Just because objects in your household don’t show up on traditional recycling containers, don’t take that as a sign they can’t be reused. With a little research you can find all types of items to move out of your trash and to an eco-friendly place.

Holiday Gift Guide: Milwaukee Tools M12™ Cordless Black Heated Jacket Kit!


Today's Holiday Gift Guide Feature is the perfect gift for the hard working man on your list! Milwaukee Tools M12 Cordless Heated Jackets are perfect for the guy (or girl!) who spends tons of time outside in the elements! These jackets are simply amazing. Keep reading to find out more!
 About Milwaukee® M12™ Heated Jackets:
 Redesigned for optimal fit and better heat retention, Milwaukee® M12™ Cordless Heated Jackets integrate (5) carbon fiber heating elements and advanced fabric-layering technology to distribute and maintain heat across core body areas. For added versatility, two distinct heat zones (back and chest, lower pockets) can be adjusted independently to provide the right amount of heat for any situation.  A rugged wind and water resistant shell keeps weather out while improved insulation and a thermal fleece lining hold heat in to maximize warmth and reduce the number of layers needed. On and off the jobsite, Milwaukee® M12™ Heated Jackets provide up to 6 hours of continuous heat per battery charge to withstand even the harshest winter conditions.

Utilizing the same M12™ REDLITHIUM™ Battery technology that powers 60+ tools, the M12™ Battery holder is stored in a sleek back pocket that can expand to fit M12™ XC Batteries and all M18™ Batteries with additional M18™ USB Charger accessory. It also includes a fuel gauge to check your battery life and built-in USB port for charging portable electronic devices. All M12™ Heated Jackets are washer and dryer safe.


We received the M12 Black Heated Jacket Kit to review, and it is simply an amazing product! There really is no question as to why these jackets are so popular, and they are so tough to get your hands on! The M12 has four different heat zones, one in the chest/stomach, and one in the upper back. There is another in the lower back, and the last heat zone is in the pockets. The battery charger goes in a small pocket on the side, and although it is hard to believe, you can barely tell it's even there. It's definitely not something that would aggravate you or get in your way during a long day's work. There is also a USB port that allows you to charge your devices from the battery of your jacket, and there is even a slip to run the cord from the battery to the other pockets. This feature is very helpful and is not aggravating at all.

This jacket is very thick, it could actually keep you warm without the heater even turned on in some conditions. Our reviewer actually wore a hoodie over the jacket for part of the review time, and says that is actually a great way to keep more of the heat inside and stay a little bit warmer. The pockets are really big and roomy, and there is room to keep any needed "stuff" inside as well. Our reviewer was very impressed with the even heat distribution of the jacket. He says that there were no "hot spots" and that all of the heat was evenly distributed. Also, even though the sleeves do not have their own heating elements, they stay warm and toasty too! The jacket also has an LED display that shows the heat settings. That is very helpful that you are able to always see exactly what is going on. There is also a button on the bottom of the battery pack that shows you how much battery life you have left, which is a useful thing as well. The jacket is also really nice, and is fashionable enough to wear out. Simply put, this is not just a work jacket, it is way more than that.  Don't forget that this jacket can be washed and dried at home in your washer and dryer with no issues- how cool is that!?!?!

The only thing we would recommend if you are purchasing a Milwaukee Heated Jacket, is that you pick up an extra battery (they are super cheap!) to extend the heat time! The jacket is rated for six hours of heat, but on high settings and at extremely cold temperatures, the jacket only lasted for about four hours. Keep in mind, however, that this was on a 10 degree morning, and that is probably not typical. Once the high of the day reached about 30 degrees, our reviewer switched to low settings, and found that the battery life was much longer, and stayed nice and warm for the rest of the day. Also keep in mind that charging a battery is super fast, and only takes about 20 minutes for a full charge. However, you might find it helpful to always keep a spare battery around, so you never have to feel the cold at all! These are the same batteries that can be used in more than 60 other Milwaukee tools products, so they are interchangeable.

All in all, we were extremely impressed with this jacket. It does everything it needs to do, and more! The price for something like this is incredibly reasonable, and this is one of those times that you definitely get what you pay for! You can consider the Milwaukee Heated Jacket an investment that you will be glad you made.

Holiday Gift Guide: Belli Skincare!


Do you have an expecting or nursing mom on your list this year? If so, give her the gift of safe and healthy skincare from Belli, a company whose sole focus is skincare products for women who are expecting, nursing and beyond!

About Belli:
A skin care company that obsesses more than most about the purity and safety of its ingredient.  Belli’s facial and body care products were originally formulated for expecting or nursing mothers, so they undergo intensive screening to make sure no ingredients have any links whatsoever to birth defects or other problems of pregnancy.   Naturally that also makes them great for anyone who prizes peace-of-mind and glowing, healthy skin.  Every ingredient in every Belli product is teratology screened, or studied for even the remotest links to problems of pregnancy or birth defects.  All of the products are also allergy tested, free of parabens, BPA, phthalates and artificial dyes.  And new tubes and airless pumps are also BPA and phthalate-free.   Bellis is the purist’s purist, and that’s great news for anyone who likes to know exactly what ingredients their skin may absorb. 




I absolutely love, love, LOVE the idea behind this company! While my pregnant and nursing days are long behind me now, I remember very well the fear of putting something on (or in!) your body that would potentially hurt your baby. All of Belli's products are completely safe for pregnant and nursing women, so you don't have to worry about any of the ingredients. They are also all OBGYN and dermatologist recommended, which gives a little extra peace of mind.


We got a chance to check out the PREP Fresh Start Pre-Treatment Scrub, as well as the Anti Blemish Facial Wash, and I really loved both products! The scrub contains both green tea and ginseng, as well as peppermint oil, which are all invigorating and energizing for the skin. This product smells great and is very gentle, yet effective on the skin. The facial wash is great as well, and contains no salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and benzoyl peroxide-- common acne fighting ingredients that should be avoided during pregnancy. It does however have lemon peel oil, which I absolutely love. I am not pregnant, but I have some acne issues going on lately, and I must say I really liked using this facial wash. I can totally tell a difference in my face, and I am now hooked on Belli! To check them out for yourself, visit: http://www.belliskincare.com/.

And, just for fun, here are 10 Things You Didn't Know About Planes: Fire and Rescue!!!

10 THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW ABOUT PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE!
Pssst! Want the inside scoop on Dusty’s new adventure, PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE? We quiz the filmmakers and animation team for super fun facts and sizzlin’ insider secrets…

MOVIE SECRET #1… 
THERE ARE HIDDEN MEANINGS BEHIND THE NUMBERS IN THE MOVIE!
“We love to hide fun numbers in the animation,” reveals Planes: Fire & Rescue art director Toby Wilson. “The ‘301’ you see on the side of Blade is actually the number from the CalFire’s air-attack helicopter at Hemet-Ryan air base. We used that as a thank you because we spent so much time there researching the movie. Watch out for national identification numbers on the planes and helicopters, too. They often hide things like birthdays or special dates for the filmmakers. The birthday of Bobs Gannaway, our director, is one of the national identification numbers in the movie!”

MOVIE SECRET #2… 
A SCENE IN THE MOVIE IS BASED ON A FIREFIGHTER’S TRUE ACT OF BRAVERY!
“In the movie, there’s a scene where a new character named Blade takes Dusty Crophopper into a mine to protect him from a fire,” explains Planes: Fire & Rescue director Bobs Gannaway. “Well, that sequence is based on a true story. A firefighter named Pulaski saved his crew by taking them into a mine in Idaho during 1910’s Great Idaho Fire. In honor of the famous firefighter, we named our yellow fire truck in the movie Pulaski. It’s an absolute honor to have him represented in the film.”

MOVIE SECRET #3… 
PISTON PEAK NATIONAL PARK IS BASED ON A NUMBER OF NATIONAL PARKS!
“We wanted to take audiences somewhere they’ve never been before,” reveals Bobs Gannaway. “The film has a little bit of Americana woven into a mash-up of Yellowstone, Yosemite and a few other national parks – all with our own distinctive spin.” Keep your eyes peeled when the action of the movie heads to the Grand Fusel Lodge of Piston Peak. The quirky building was directly inspired by Yellowstone’s iconic Old Faithful Inn!


MOVIE SECRET #4… 
JULIE BOWEN SIGNED UP FOR THE SEQUEL BEFORE THE FIRST PLANES  FILM WAS EVEN RELEASED!
“I have no idea how I ended up in an amazing Disney animation like this,” giggles actress Julie Bowen. “Out of the blue, I got a call from Disney offering me the role – but I’ve since discovered that John Lasseter [the head of Walt Disney Animation Studios] is a huge fan of my show, Modern Family. When they offered me the role of Dipper in Planes: Fire & Rescue, the first Planes movie hadn’t been released – but I knew I was in safe hands. My kids love the fact that I’m in a Planes movie. This whole experience has been an absolute blast!”

MOVIE SECRET #5… 
IT TOOK A TEAM OF 900 PEOPLE TO CREATE THE MOVIE!
A lot of time and effort goes into the creation of an epic animation like Planes: Fire & Rescue. “In total, a team of 900 people spent four years creating the ambitious animated movie,” admits producer Ferrell Barron. “That includes everyone from animators and voice artists to writers and musicians.”

MOVIE SECRET #6… 
REAL VEHICLES OFTEN INSPIRE THE CHARACTER DESIGN!
Most of the high-flying vehicles in the movie are fictional, but their design is usually inspired by real aircraft. The look of Dusty Crophopper was inspired by three planes: the Air Tractor 502, the Cessna and the Air Dromader. The design of Windlifter was inspired by three helicopters: the Sikorsky Skycrane, the Kamov KA-26 and the Mil MI-10. Many of the land-based vehicles are also based on real automobiles. The design of Mayday – Propwash Junction’s feisty fire truck – was based on the 1940s Fordson Tender.

MOVIE SECRET #7… 
ACTRESS JULIE BOWEN PANICKED IN THE RECORDING BOOTH!
“I had a lot of fun in the recording booth,” admits Julie Bowen. “You have to repeat the same lines a million times, but it never gets boring. The director and his team sit behind a big glass window. They have to press a button for me to hear what they are saying, but I’d always see them chatting away whenever their fingers left the button. It made me panic. I’d think, ‘Oh no! Am I doing this wrong?’ Eventually, I asked them to keep their finger on the button so that I could hear everything. That’s when I discovered they were talking about the most boring things in the world! They would turn to each other and say things like, “Um… Did anybody change the toner in the fax machine?” They weren’t talking about me at all!”

MOVIE SECRET #8…
AN AEROBATIC HELICOPTER PILOT ASSISTED THE ANIMATION TEAM!
Blade Ranger and Windlifter are two exciting new helicopter characters in the movie. In order to research how they fly, the filmmakers turned to a world-renowned aerobatic helicopter pilot named Chuck Aaron. Aaron has more than 42 years and 20,000 flight hours under his belt! “They asked me if I would watch the movie and look at the storyboards to determine if the helicopter movements were factual and feasible,” says Aaron. “It brings authenticity and realism to the movie.”

MOVIE SECRET #9…
PISTON PEAK’S MECHANIC TUG IS NAMED AFTER A REAL MECHANIC!
“Maru is the name of the friendly mechanic tug at Piston Peak Air Attack base, but his history dates back to the first movie,” explains Toby Wilson. “On one of the research trips for the first movie, the team went to Wisconsin where they met a mechanic with one hand. Outside his garage, it said ‘Maru’s Garage’ written in big letters. Our creative executive, Paul Gerard, went inside and asked him, ‘So, where’s Maru?’ The mechanic replied, ‘The name’s Marv!’ It turns out he had really bad handwriting on his sign. Marv is the real-life inspiration behind Maru in the movie.”

MOVIE SECRET #10!
DANE COOK WOULD LIKE TO SEE A MUSICAL PLANES MOVIE!
“I’ve always been a fan of all Disney movies when I was growing up, especially the musicals,” admits Dane Cook. “I used to love Bedknobs And Broomsticks, which was live action and animation combined. I just loved it, and I always wanted to be a part of it. I’d love to see a Planes musical. After Frozen was released, I said to everyone, ‘We need music in Planes.’ Maybe next time?”

MOVIE SECRET EXTRA!
MORE THAN 2 MILLION TREES POPULATE PISTON PEAK NATIONAL PARK!
One of the many difficult tasks that the filmmakers tackled was the creation of Piston Peak National Park. “It was a huge challenge for the art team,” explains Bobs Gannaway. “And more than 2 million trees were incorporated into its design.” The animation team ensured that just the right trees were incorporated into the scenery – including lodgepole pine, ponderosa pine, incense cedar, red woods and giant sequoia!

Holiday Gift Guide: Panasonic Kids Battery Powered Toothbrush!



I received a sample product in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own and no monetary compensation was received. 

If you are looking for a great stocking stuffer to help promote healthy habits in your home, we have the perfect gift idea for you! We recently got a chance to check out the Panasonic Kids Battery Operated Toothbrush. 

First of all, isn't this the cutest thing you have ever seen? This toothbrush (thePanasonic EW-DS32-A)  is designed to help teach kid healthy habits from a very young age. It's super lightweight and portable, so you can take it with you on the go. This toothbrush features super soft bristles for little mouths, and the speed is very soft and gentle, so teeth can get super clean without any pain or irritation. The toothbrush takes a single AAA battery, and the cute teddy bear cap is a cute touch. Another great thing is that this toothbrush comes with a built in LED light, which makes brushing teeth fun. Believe it or not, this tiny toothbrush packs a punch with 12,000 brush strokes per second! 


Our Thoughts: 

This is a great choice for a toothbrush if you have younger kids. The $39.99 price tag might seem a little steep to some, but if you are looking for an upgrade from a traditional toothbrush, this is a great option. The ergonomic design makes it easy for anyone to brush a child's teeth with this brush: mom, dad, or kids themselves. If you are looking for a first sonic toothbrush for your little one, this is a great choice. For my four year old, this toothbrush has been working out perfectly. However, my eight year old seems like he might be a little too big for it. I would like to see a bigger size for older kids/tweens. I think that would be a great choice. I really like the LED light on the brush, it makes it a little bit easier to see inside those tiny mouths.


This toothbrush has been perfect for my four year old. I think if I were to get him a "traditional" sonic toothbrush, he would be way too scared to brush his teeth with it. I am very happy with this more gentle option for him. I love, love, LOVE that the toothbrush head can be removed and replaced. Also, the fact that it takes a simple AAA battery is great, since we always have those laying around. All in all, the Panasonic Kid's Battery Powered toothbrush would make a great gift! If you would like to check it out, click here to visit Panasonic's website.

Thanks so much to the great folks at Panasonic, we have an additional toothbrush to give away to one lucky reader! To enter, simply leave a comment below and tell us who this toothbrush would be for if you were the winner! We will draw a winner on 11/30/14 at approx. 10pm EST. Winner will be chosen via random.org and will be contacted via email for details on how to claim their prize.

Need Ideas To Decorate Outdoors?


Look at your house. This is what others see when you invite them to your place for get-togethers. There are a number of ways you can beautify your house. If you are looking for inspiration, here are some ideas for outdoor decors.

1.    Outdoor Fireplace, history style: Revamping your backyard, you can amuse yourself by placing some bricks from an old patio in shape and creating a terrace out of a mixture of sand and granite. Add to it a candlelit chandelier and wooden furniture. Now, burn some sticks and sit there. It looks like an ideal place to be at on special occasions.

2.    Mirror Effect: If you have a decent fireplace in the outdoor, add mirrors on either side of it. It looks good and, at the same time, the space looks bigger. However, make sure that the frames for the mirrors match your outdoors. It should not look odd.

3.    Porch, not just porch: If you’d like to opt for an affordable setup, you can use the same porch in your house to be a comfortable sitting area outside. For outdoor furniture, comfort is very important. Porch will give you a comfy feeling you need to sit outdoors and appreciate the nature.

4.    Plants Plants all around: Having plants around you, you can be away from your tensed environment and sit on a chair in peace. If the area is worked out properly, the courtyard garden will smell like an ocean of fragrance. Putting little lights on the trees, you can have a magical candlelight dinner, every night.

5.    Paint and match: The color and texture of the paint on the walls, the smoothness of the tiles, and the surroundings should match. You should not have a terrible mis-match. That will be a disaster. So, mix and match, but don’t overdo it. Remember, overdoing is as bad as underdoing.

6.    TV: This is not necessary. But if you like to experience lazy times after work, this can be a good option. However, for this you need space, connections and the perfect spot. If any one of the three factors is missing, you might end up spoiling your mood with the hard work you have done to install it.

7.    Beautify the Small Space: Often people do not care for outdoor décor because they have a limited space and feel it is not worth spending time on beautifying it. However, small spaces make for a small little paradise. Set up a table, have some lovely flowers around and make it a place for lunch, dinner or drinks. It will serve the purpose good.

8.    Table Dressing: Sometimes the furniture is so good that you don’t feel like covering it. If your furniture is just average, drape it with beautifully designed linen. It will look simple, yet refine luxuries.


These simple outdoor décor ideas should help you decorate with ease. If you are looking for accessories to further beautify it, here is a sears promo codes appliances so that you save more, while you are buying even more.

Open Secrets of Lip Gloss


Applying lip gloss is an art. Yes, it is! Not many women can apply it with perfection. Rather, some don’t know the secrets of applying it. This is because they use a lip gloss to make an impression, but do not care if there are better options available to suit their needs. If you are one of them, read on.

1.    Which color suits you the best?
Your favorite color is pink, but is it the best for you? Ask for yourself by trying them. Go to a departmental store and try a few shades for yourself. Check for yourself and buy lip gloss on the basis of how good it looks. Don’t scrap the colorless lip gloss. Try it too. Experts say that some colors of the lip gloss look good on the basis of the women’s skin. Reds, chocolates and deep plums work best for dark-skinned; while beige and pink look good on the fair-skinned. If you are if medium tone, berry and rose with brown shades would look good.

2.    Is it necessary?
Some women avoid lip gloss and give priority to other products. Lip gloss is important and should not be ignored. It makes your gorgeous lips look even better. So, don’t ignore it.

3.    How should you apply it?
There are many ways you can apply lip gloss.
·         Liquid Lip Gloss: With this, you need to take the applicator stick and gently rub it on your lips. Remember, while rubbing it, use a circular motion. Doing it randomly, will not serve the purpose.
·         Tube Lip Gloss: With this, put some on the lip brush and spread it around the lips. This lip brush should be specifically used for lip gloss and no other purpose. TIP: In case you don’t have a lip brush by your side, use your little finger and apply lip gloss.
·         Roll-on Lip Gloss: The easiest option of all, apply it on the bottom and then on the top. Again, do it in a circular motion.

.    Lip Gloss after Lipstick?
Apply even amount of lipstick and then a small amount of lip gloss. It will give a good impact.

5.    How can you make it last longer?
To make it last longer, you need to use it with Vaseline. Vaseline helps it stay for a longer time. So, apply some Vaseline on your lips and then an even amount of lip gloss.

6.    Age limit?
Practically and logically, there is no age limit to apply lip gloss. Some limit themselves on crossing the age of 50. In fact, after crossing 50, you should not stop applying it. Many complain that they have lost the fullness because of their age. This is true but lip gloss will only help you make those lips look better. So, don’t stop using it. It is one product that looks good on every woman; may she be 18 or 80.

Halloween Hazards: Coming Soon!



Halloween is just around the corner, and this is the time kids go crazy for special Halloween candies. But it is a risky affair. There are a number of concerns that is not understood by the kids, but the after effects are terrible. Here is a list of safety measures you need to take so that you and your loved ones continue living in a safe environment. 
  • 1.    Don’t open the candy till you are home: Children go to a number of parties, and there is a possibility that some poor quality candy bar falls in the share. Tell them not to open the candy till they reach home. This way, even if there is a negative effect of that candy, you will be around to take care of the issue.
  • 2.    Buy quality candies for them: You cannot stop them from having candies at Halloween. So, buy good quality candies beforehand and let them have it. There are a number of online portals offering candies for Halloween. If you are planning to buy some for them, simply google discount coupons. They offer exclusive coupons to help you get amazing discounts at such discount portals.
  • 3.    Unwrapped candy? Don’t eat it: This is a golden rule. Tell your children to throw away any candy which is not properly wrapped. Also, avoid tampered candies. Many candies are tampered such as loose or torn packages or small pinholes in wrappers. Tell them to check it before having such candies.
  • 4.    Eat some, avoid some: Normal Halloween candies are not an issue. However, tell your kids not to have hard candies, peanuts and gums. This will avoid any choking hazard. Again, tell them to check the big candies before having them. Some of the biggie candies have small toys in them as gifts. Checking them in advance will avoid choking.
  • 5.    Know your child’s temptation: You can solve a couple of problems by knowing your child’s temptations. As a parent, you might know what types of candies are preferred by your children. This will help you list down the candies they can have at parties.
  • 6.    Control the count: Kids love candies and keep stuffing them in their tummy till they can. It is important for them to limit themselves on the count. Having too many candies is not good for their health.
  • 7.    Control Center: Keep the number of Children’s Hospital of Michigan Regional Poison Control Center (1-800-222-1222) handy. In case you find anything suspicious about a candy, make sure you report it to the control center. Many a times, people find such candies but care less about it. This keeps them and their children safe but if someone else does not notice it, it can be hazardous.

Concluding, there are a number of candy stores you can rely on. Moreover, online portals offer good quality candies at cheaper rates. Chameleonjohn offers coupons that can help you get an additional discount on your total bill. Opt for a verified source and be safe during Halloween.
