Recycled Bird Bath

Today we put up a birdbath made out of an old satellite dish that was otherwise destined for the dump. I got the idea from instructables

What's reat about the bird bath is that now there is a use for the old stump in our backyard.

Cat Collars Made from Bottles

I saw these in my local Petco - cat collars made from recycled plastic bottles, which is cool in itself, but not only that - they are made with appealing designs AND come in a variety of colors! Go Petmate!

Recycle your Formal Dresses

Do you have a formal dress or 15 in your closet that you bought for that one occasion and have never worn again? Here's a way to free up some space in your closet and feel good about yourself.

Donate it to the Pricess Project - an SF organization that gives them to girls who might not otherwise be able to afford a formal dress for their prom.

The Princess Project holds its Giveaway Events each spring in preparation for prom season, usually in March or April.
