Pet owners buy so much pet food and it comes in big plastic bags. Often, these bags are bound for the landfill. "Fido Recycles Too" reuses these bags to create durable, reusable grocery bags simultaneously reducing the single use bags and reusing potential waste. In order for "Fido Recycles Too" to really make a difference, people need to know why single use bags are so detrimental to the environment. Therefore, this project will include an interactive educational display to be used in conjunction with the distribution of "Fido Recycles Too" bags. Local farmers markets, environmentally focused grocery stores, and the county fair will be the first venues for "Fido Recycles Too." Pet owners and non pet owners alike can help this project succeed, by reusing pet food bags and helping to educate the public.
We‘ll sell cake in school and give the money to the animal shelter and we‘ll collect mobile phones and send them to the telecom.

Starting with my own clothes, mostly outgrown pants (soft material), my sister and I will turn them into pillows that can be used by cancer treatment centers or even the humane society. Whether people in a cancer treatment chair or an animal in a humane society kennel, they deserve to be comfortable. We are learning how to reuse our old clothes, learning how to sew, and learning how to give and bring smiles to others. We are even attaching a hand written inspirational message to the ones going to the cancer center.
Pups and Cupcakes are hosting a Puppy and Cat coat/supplies drive. We are requesting Hair Products, dog/cat food, grooming kits, warm pet coats and sweaters. Item collected will be distributed to families and our local ASPCA.
I was going to visit the place where the trashes are disposed, but I couldn't find one where I can go and look at. So, I changed my plan to pick up trahses around my neighborhood. After I pick up the trashes, I will show the picture of it to young kids and try to teach them about the importance of not throwing the trashes anywhere.
Our foster home takes in abandoned kittens from local shelters and raises them in a home environment until they reach the adoptable age of 8 weeks. We find forever homes for the kittens and begin the cycle again. As funding increases, more litters may be brought to the home at one time. The capacity for care in our 6 room house is 24 at any one time.
We will start gathering recyclable materials from homes (wood, cardboard boxes, used paint, clothing, storage bins, etc.), make a thorough plan of the shelter and which animal it is targeted for and start building.
