For those who attended my, Residue Free- Beyond Green, talk at Marlene's, thank you for your amazing reception and interest in creating healthy homes. As a huge bonus, my cold felt better after visiting with you last night. I think it was from all the TLC you passed my way-THANK YOU!
Most likely with a clearer brain, my use of the microphone stand would have been a bit smoother! Of course, the beauty in living is there is no such thing as perfection. If we wait for this illusive thing called perfection we will be waiting a very long time and so much good comedy would have been lost along the way!
As promised, here are some connections and resources for you. They include links to Emmanuel from King County Hazardous waste, where to by Alpaca Ball and to Jeanette who is the city of Federal Way Recycling and Solid Waste Project Manager. As an added bonus, I gave you the links to Women's Voices of the Earth- a great resource for making your own products and the link to our very own Marlene's.
If you want further info, have any questions or want to be contacted for upcoming talks I'm giving, please call or e-mail me anytime. Thanks again for attending, it was indeed an honor and pleasure visiting with you all!!
As always, wishing you a healthy and happy home.

Emmanuel from King County Hazardous Waste. As you could probably tell, Emmanuel is passionate and quite knowledgeable in his work, plus his is an absolute pleasure to work with. Please check out the amazing resources King County has to offer its residents. How fortunate are we that we have a place to ask questions, safely and at no charge dispose of unused products ( cleaners, chemicals etc) and have awesome people to work with!! http://www.lhwmp.org/home/
Alpaca Balls- Dryer Balls. Jeannette from Federal Ways Recycling program told us about a great place to find this balls at www.Etsy.com To find, in the search button type in: Alpaca balls. As you will recall, alpaca dryer balls are felted wool to be used in your dryer in replacement of dryer sheets and fabric softener. This is a huge reduction in chemical exposure plus when these balls finally wear out in 2-5 years, you can compost them as they are made of all natural fibers!! Love it!! There are two alpaca ball sites I recommend. For keeping your alpaca ball shopping local, visit the Twilight Tango Alpacas which is located in Enumclaw Washington. For finding your alpacas from a place near and dear to my heart, contact Pacages Farm Store - Alpaca Star Ranch in Amhurst Colorado. They raise their alpacas on the same farm my great grandfather raised his kids including my grandpa Biddie and Aunt Velma.
