Mesh clutch purse

I made this bag out of 2 plastic bags and a one of those pieces of plastic mesh that the cutie satsumas are packaged in. The bag turned out pretty well, but there are a few parts of it that didn't. The mesh was pretty hard to work with but I think I'll do better with it in the future. So it wasn't really good enough to post on my etsy. But then I didn't know who to give it to so I thought, why not have a give away on the blog? Just comment on this post about your favorite post on this blog. I will enter you a second time if you tell somebody about this giveaway and they mention you in their comment. I will draw a winner on the eighth of January (of 2010!!!!)

holiday green facts

  • if every American family wrapped just 3 presents in re-used materials, it would save enough paper to cover 45,000 football fields.
  • if everyone sent one card less, we would save 50,000 cubic yards of paper.
  • if every American family reused 2 feet of ribbon, we could tie a bow around the earth.

what to do with your old nylons/ stockings/ pantyhose/ nylon stockings...

Hello dear people,

I realize we haven't had a particularly interesting post for quite some time. Of course, we have had Eleonor's Starbucks love thing, and my green holiday gifts post, but neither of those were things about what we have been doing. Alright, I will admit this is a roundup of uses for pantyhose/ nylons/ stockings/ etc. found on the Internet, but at least it's more than 20ish words.

Anyway, I shall proceed. So, my mom uses stockings/ nylons/ the most easy-to-get-holes in-things in the world for work, which means I have a pile of the things on my bedroom floor. Do not worry, it's not like she's dumping them on me. I actually specifically asked her to give them to me. I couldn't bear to see them, perfectly good pieces of fabric (at least to me), going to a landfill. I digress. I did a little bit of googling to bring to you, dear reader, the 10 best uses for old stockings/ yeah...I'm not writing that again.

1. Use the foot as a hairnet (only if there aren't any holes in the toes)

2. Use the foot to strain lumpy paint(then you have colorful pantyhose feet!)

3. stick the last little piece of a bar of soap in the foot and tie a knot so you can be green by being green!

short Q&A before we continue:

Q: did that make any sense to you?

A: No.

Q: is it possible to use more than just the foot of the nylons?

A: Of course it is!

4. reuse the elastic in the waist

5. If you drop something on the floor and you just can't find it, rubberband a little peice of pantyhose to the end of the vacume cleaner and vacume away! Whatever you dropped will stick to the fabric rather than go down into the deep, dark, stomach of the vacume cleaner. Expect to find all sorts of things you thought you had lost forever.

6. fold a leg into a nice little square and CLEAN stuff.

7. put a leg over a broom and be amazed at how much stuff is picked up that usually is ignored by your broom.

8. use little wads of the material to remove nail polish instead of using cotton balls.

9. put a peice of stocking over the bristles of your brush, and when your brush gets full of hair, you can just pull off the peice of fabric and with it comes your hair!

10. cut off the legs, tie them together, and knit or crochet with them!

random green tip #10

Pencil shavings are compostable, so empty your pencil sharpener in the yardwaste bin. Also, use hand powered pencil sharpeners whenever possible. Not only do they save energy, but they don't eat up your pencil as much so your pencils last longer!

random green tip #9

You can compost anything made out of natural fibers like cotton or wool. Preferably fabric with little or no chemicals.

we have a pretty header!

Made by our very own Finn, we have an absolutely amazing new header. Also, thanks to Lindsey(our art teacher for those of you who don't know her) for teaching me how to put a picture on the header.

Tuesday, December 1, 2009

random green tip #8

cotton and wool are compostable as long as you cut off any tags, elastic, ect. However, before you compost something, see if it can be given away or given to goodwill.

Monday, November 30, 2009

random green tip #7

Whenever possible, do not use overnight shipping. Overnight shipping usually involves airplanes, which uses 6 times more energy than ground shipping. Also, planes release their exhaust higher up in the atmosphere, so they do more damage with global warming than gases emitted at ground level.

random green tip #6

In Seattle, you can recycle plastic...
  • planting pots
  • berry trays larger than 3"
  • lids larger than 3"
  • cups
  • clam-shells
  • non-prescription medicine containers like aspirin and vitimins

the paper is dry!

The paper that T.Y. and I made is (finally) dry. I think it took so long because a. it was sitting on a cold basement floor, b. it was sitting on wet paper on a cold basement floor, and c. the paper is very thick.

Anyway, despite all that, the paper looks great. the best pieces were the ones where we used regular (though found in the recycling bin) printer paper. The covered-in-adds junk mail still looks fine, though the color isn't quite as nice as the others.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

random giving

Do any of you L-Dub people remember how at the end of last year we were going to randomly place a book somewhere were it would be found with a note that said something like,"You found this book. You can read it, and when you're done, put the book back for someone else to find". Or something. So, in honor of thanksgiving and the holidays, put something somewhere someone can find it. It doesn't have to be a book, as books don't tend to be waterproof. Or you could do sort of a chain mail version: "This (insert name of object) is for you! Now it is your turn to put something somewhere. Just include a note similar to this one!" Or you could just have a note that just says, "this is for you. keep it and cherish this random act of kindness". Or you could say, "go to girls-go-green.blogspot.com" actually maybe that would be kind of weird. so don't do that.
Just give a gift.

Saturday, November 21, 2009

the results are in

Ok, I kind of forgot to draw the name for the giveaway yesterday, but never fear, I remembered today. The winner will receive a wallet made from candy wrappers. I wrote all of the names down (on scratch paper of course), cut them out, and put them in a hat made from recycled materials. I then asked mi madre to do the honors.
The winner is (drumroll please)...

how to make paper

with the holidays coming up, it's time to start making or buying gifts. Especially green gifts! In this tutorial, T.Y. and I show you how to make paper. You can also add seeds and give the gift as a plantable one!

Materials:

  • blender
  • 2 tubs
  • water
  • measuring cup
  • white glue
  • scissors
  • some kind of screen(we actually used a silverware divider that was made out of a screen-like material)
  • PAPER

Unfortunately, I can only upload 100mb to blogger at a time, and the video is slightly bigger than that. I just thought you might like to know why there are two parts:)

Random Green Tip # 5

Before printing anything off the computer, think carefully about whether you need to print it. And definitely don't print multiple copies! (Unless necessary) Also, try to print on scratch paper.

Also, when shopping for paper, look for recycled brands.

random green tip #4

When not using your computer, unplug it or attach the cords to a powerstrip and turn off the powerstrip. Even when they're not on, computers use huge amounts of electricity each year.

random green tip #3

Yes, this may sound obvious, but I'm writing it anyway: Turn off lights when you're not using them. That also goes for appliances.

Hey peeps,
My dad was featured in the Campain for America's Wilderness newsletter, and I just thought I'd share it with you. You can find it here. I love hyperlinks!

random green tip #2

When making flashcards, cut your note card in half. One whole note card has plenty of paper in it for at least two words, especially if you are making the flashcards for a translation of a language to another language, because each side only needs room for one word.

ironing plastic

I was ironing candy wrappers and chip bags, and I have a few tips for you if you want to make your own.
  1. Try to stay away from twixes and other candy wrappers with metalic insides. They take a lot of time to fuse corectly, using up electricity with the iron
  2. thin wrappers work the best. You just have to fold them several times.
  3. when ironing chip bags, don't fold them at all, and just sweep the iron over both sides
  4. avoid cheetos. they melt and buckle up.
  5. Always, always, always put a peice of wax paper between the plastic and the iron; if you don't, you will have a BIG mess.
  6. don't take too much time with each peice of plastic. You don't want to waste energy with the iron. Also, you don't want to realese too many plastic fumes.

That's pretty much all! Just be creative with your recycled material.

Napkins

Random green tip: At resturants, only take one paper napkin. People tend to grab a handfull of them, which usually are then thrown away.

Fall fest

hey chicas,
i can not wait for fall fest! It will be soooooooo much fun! I just got back from my little brother's fall fest which was really fun. There were tons of adorable kindergarteners there (were we really that tiny just a few years ago?). Sarina was also there, as were some of my other friends from elementary school. We all played on the playground and it was just like old times. I apologize for this non-green post. Tomorrow I will post pictures of my capri sun bags.

Scratch paper

Please please please put your paper with a blank side into the scratch paper bin. We are wasting quite a bit of paper that way. I mean, sure we're recycling our paper, but that takes a lot of energy, which could easily be saved. Very easily. Anyway, have a green afternoon!

Compost

Many people don't like compost because it stinks and has fruit flies.
Besides taking it out more often and having a good lid there isn't much more you can do for smell. But i've discovered a green way to deal with the fruit flies.
Take a glass and put some wine in it.
Cover tightly and put a rubberband around the edge.
Make a small Peircing in wrap.
Soon you'll have fruit flies in the glass not in your kitchen.
Change about 1 a month.
A great way to reuse some wine and get rid of fruit flies without chemicals.

Ashland

Eleonor was right: Ashland was wonderful, and fairly green; from the way the restaurant would only give you water if you really wanted; and the little signs on the napkin dispensers in the cafeteria that said that a soda can is forever, and of course the thrift shop. There was also that little retro store that had a purse made from beer cans! Unfortunately, at the cafeteria, lots of food that, if it were here, could be recycled. I don't actually know for sure that the food isn't recycled, but I do know that if it is, it is being done behind the scenes where the students aren't actively making the decision to recycle; they just put all their food on the conveyor belt.
Anyway, to wrap things up, the plays were amazing and the workshops were very fun. Thanks to Jenny, Heather, and all the parent chaparones for making such a great trip possible.
Also, if you're an author for this blog, it would be great if you were to write about your Ashland experience.

Kirsten asked me to tell you guys about this event. It's also on the wiki, under science links, on the science page. It's on Monday, October 12, from 6:30 to 8:00, at the seattle aquarium. It will be televised on King County TV Cable Channel 22, so the website tells me.

There is a brand of completely biodegradable garbage bags. They are called:
BioBags
Though they are a bit more expensive and not quite as water proof, they work extremely well and are better for the environment
Wax paper bags are also good though can usually only be used once. Resealable plastic sandwhich bags are okay only if they are washed and reused.
Throwing plastic sandwhich bags and grocery bags out after only one use is a waste of resources and money along with being terrible for the environment.
Go to this website
http://planetgreen.discovery.com/

Plastic Bags

As many of you may not realize, plastic bags have many uses. You can
Pick up dog our cat poop
Fuse them together with an iron and make a wallet or bag
Crochet our knit them
Reuse them to carry groceries
For more ideas go to these websites

another plastic bag bag

Hey guys,
As most of you know, I'm making another plastic bag bag, but this time instead of fusing together the bags, I'm crocheting them. All I did was chain about 50, made it a loop, and used dc for about 5 inches. Then I ran out of plastic bags because for some reason we don't have any. If you want to make one, whatever you do, do not use the kind of black grocery bag that feels sort of waxy. It is way more trouble than it's worth.

To make the yarn (thanks TY) cut off the handles and the bottom (and save them to fuse together for something else) and lay the bag down flat. You should have a flat cylinder of plastic. Cut 1 inch strips. It's kind of hard to explain, but you should have circles. Using the girth hitch (you can find that here), connect all of the circles into a long string. That’s all!

Incase you were wondering, the contest is still going. It won't be stopping until we get at least 10 comments, so get people to comment!

one more thing i forgot to mention: does anybody actually read this blog? if you do, would you please comment below? that would make me really happy. if you don't read the blog(and you are some how connected to our school) because you don't like what is being said in the posts, email me and you could post. If you don't have a google or yahoo account (there are a couple of other emails that work) you can email me (or any of the other people that can post) a blog post that you want posted! that sentence was way to long but thats ok because i'm done now.
don't forget to comment!

plastic bag bag

In an earlier post, I said that I had a project for us, but unfortunately it involves irons, so it's probably not a very good project for school. However, it is not too difficult, and it recycles plastic bags, so here's how to make it:


Materials:

  • about 30 plastic bags
  • an iron
  • wax paper
  • a needle and thread (or a sewing machine)

how to make a bag from fused together plastic bags
  • first you cut off the handles and the bottom edge of one of the plastic bags
  • then, fold the plastic twice so there are 8 layers of plastic(for thinner or thicker plastic bags, you can adjust the amount of times you fold)
  • sandwich the folded plastic bag between two layers of wax paper, and iron for about 30 seconds on each side.
  • repeat process for all of the plastic bags














  • place all of your pieces of fused plastic into a rectangle shape that is twice as long as you want the finished bag to be, with a little bit extra for a flap (optional)






  • sew the rectangle together
  • fold the rectangle in half (if you decided to make a flap, make one side longer than the other)
  • sew up the sides
  • turn the bag inside out
  • take the handles that you cut off, and fuse them into a strap
  • sew the strap on to your bag
  • if your flap refuses to stay down, sew Velcro on.

bees

Finn got these facts and list of plants from www.co-operative.coop/ethicsinaction/takeaction/planbee/bees-what-you-need-to-know
there is also a movie you can watch. :)
Things you can do for bees:
  • allow a patch of grass to grow long and densely plant an area of your flowerbed to provide bees with shelter from the rain or a sudden drop in temperature
  • provide water for bees to drink – this can be as simple as a shallow edged dish of water with pebbles in it to help bees climb in and out
  • reduce the use of pesticides in your garden
  • do not keep unwashed honey jars outside the back door. Honeybees may feed on the remaining honey and overseas honey can contain bacteria and spores that are harmful to the bees, which they may then take back to the rest of the colony
  • protect swarms – if you see a swarm of bees, contact the local authority or the police, who will contact a local beekeeper to collect the swarm and give it a new home.

Has anyone noticed the heat!?! Is it possible not to? according to the Seattle Times, earlier today the temperature was 104 degrees Fahrenheit. 104 degrees Fahrenheit! In Seattle. What happened to the rain that we are so widely known for? Is this global warming? Or is this some natural occurrence that happens every so often?

it's disposable!

I went to the dentist today and was kind of surprised. Practically everything was disposable. The toothbrushes that you use before your appointment then throw away, the part of the x-ray machine that your mouth is on, the little tub that holds the toothpaste, the tip of the big electric tooth brush, the list goes on and on. My point is that we are able to reuse things, so why shouldn't dentists? Unfortunately, it doesn't really stop at just dentists. I was just finished getting a shot when I realized that the syringe was just being thrown away. I mean, it wasn't exactly sterile anymore, but if the syringe was made a little bit better, it probably could be sterilized. I wonder how much plastic and metal that would save.

HI :)

hello people!
This is Anna and Andrea. Andrea is this shade of green, and Anna is this shade of green. Anna that is soooo blue. This is Andrea and that was Anna. I am green Anna is blue! Fine, I'll be blue. Anyway, now we are going to tell you about all of the interesting things on the blog. Some interesting things about the blog is that we have links to other ecofriendly blogs or sites such as: two girls go green, a site for eco friendly shoes, eco friendly soap, and more. If you have other sites, you can email 1 of us. Also, we have a list of noxious weeds. If you can think of any other lists, polls, or links that have to do with being green, email us your ideas! Red is Finn!!!! :) Anyway not only are we working to live in greener ways but we are tring to save the bees which are rapidly dieing. 1 out of every 3 bees died last winter!!! there is a quote from Albert Einstien saying that if the bee is killed then man kind only has four more years to live! Some ways that you can help the bees is by planting Foxglove, Red clover, Bee balm and Joe-pye weed. Thank you and stay green!

another invasive weed is english ivy!!!!!! :(

Invasive weeds

We are being taken over by invasive weeds (also known as noxious weeds). Noxious weeds are plants that were taken somewhere ,that they weren't native to, that take over that place. Here is some stuff on one very annoying plant. Its kind of like the Trojan horse. It looks all nice and innocent, but really it's there to TAKE OVER. This plant is called Herb Robert. Its scientific name, just in case you're wondering, is Geranium robertianum. Its a geranium. It has a nickname that describes it perfectly: stinky bob. Pretty, isn't it?

Pen





Is this not the awsomest pen? The brown colored part of it is made from recycled paper, the little green things at either end are made from recycled plastic, and the thing that is used to connect the pen to your pocket is made of wood! Go Cascade Land Concervancy!!!!!!!!!!!
I hope the plastic pens that everyone uses will lose popularity and pens made from recycled materials will be what everyone uses!

No more club lunch this year

The school year is almost over. I don't think we'll be having clubs tomorrow, so that means this club is over for the year. That does not mean that we can't still do green stuff! Remember, it's the little things you do that count. One peice of paper saved doesn't seem like very much, but if everyone at our school saved just one peice of paper, thats a lot of paper! Also, we can still keep posting!

What can you do for bees?

The best thing you can do is not use pesticides, escpecialy when bees are doing their nectar pollination thing. You can also good nectar sources like red clover, foxglove, bee balm and
joe-pye weed! :)
post by Finn

Club lunch today

We didn't really do much today during club. The only person to bring a book was Deepika (yay Deepika!!!!!!!!!!!), so we decided to do something different with the book. We wrote a note to stick inside the book that said that the person to get the book should read it then leave it in their locker with a note inside it for the incoming 6th grader.

Bees

Hey people, just letting you people know that we should start taking care of bees that we see on the street. Bumblebees, honeybees, and all other bees, but if its long and narrow, with and kindda looks like a figure 8, then dont pick it up. Its probably a Yellow Jacket, and they can HURT you really bad (no from experience). I know this is Finns topic, just giving out a waning for people who ahven't heard the anouncement (although there aren't many). SAVE THE BEE! BE GREEN! GO L-DUB! 6TH GRADE RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you have any questions, talk to Finn, Anna, and/or Andrea.

From the questionnair I just sent around, 1 out of 11 people thought that dark orange is the same as brown, 2 out of 11 people thought lemons and limes taste the same, and 2 people wanted to do something having with the garden instead of the book thing that we had planned to do, so we are going to do the book thing tomorrow. BRING BOOKS PEOPLE.
