The green Generation 2009




The Green Generation is the global theme for Earth Day 2009

Quote by~Native American
"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors,we
Borrow it from our children."

Facts
Whale oil was used in automobile transmissions as late as 1973.
Your home is ten times more likely to have a fire than be burglarized!
Female canaries cannot sing.
Mushrooms are more closely related to humans and animals than to other plants!
About half of all Americans are on a diet on any given day.

Tips
Reusing Plastic bags
When using bags that have contained bread or dry goods, just shake them before storing them. If the bag got a bit wet inside, clean it with a little soap and water and dry it somewhere out of the way .
Reuse cans
Use small tuna cans as cookie cutters. Just use a pair of needle nose pliers to bend them into shapes.
Make a fire starter! Remove the top and the bottom, punch holes along the bottom edge. Punch two holes on either side of the top edge. Attach a coat hanger handle to the top. Place in the center of the grill, put newspaper in the bottom, coal on top of the newspaper, and light from the bottom (stick a match in one of the bottom holes). It gets the coals going faster and hotter. Remove the can before putting the food on.

1 large Cool Whip
1- 8 oz bar of Cream Cheese
1/2 cup sugar

Mix all ingredients together &pour into pie crust.Top with 1 can of any fruit topping of your choice.Refrigerate until serving time. Refrigerate leftovers.
