Save gas, do your shopping online

Are you familiar with green shopping? It’s my first time to hear about it either. But I was amazed at how this concept works. It saves consumers time and money and do something good for the environment in the process.

It works like this, if you make your shopping online you’ll consume less energy and reduced carbon dioxide emission by 35 percent for not using your car driving to and from the stores. Sounds a good idea for busy mommies like us, right? We don’t have to leave our homes during the busy weekdays to do our shopping, but wait for our goods to be delivered right at our doorsteps.

I have tried online shopping for apparel, shoes and some gadgets in the past months and boy, I paid costly delivery charges on them. This time, I would like to try shopping at musiciansfriend.com because aside from the lowest prices and free delivery on electronics and affordable bass with an active preamp, I would still feel good knowing that I contributed something for the environment like make the air we breath a little cleaner.

Moles and voles banished!!

20_zps448bc338Repellex wants to let you know how to get rid of voles and moles from your property once and for all. They’ve developed a product that will do the job effectively and simply with all natural products. Repellex has created the website, repellex.com, where you can find complete information about their line of products, including Repellex Systemic Tablets and Repellex Gopher and Mole Repellent. Repellex uses a combination of garlic, pepper oils, castor oil and an emulsifier that you apply directly where you need them, and the result is a direct hit to drive moles, voles, and gophers away from your precious plants, without harming them or your pets. What more could you want?

Gardeners everywhere are praising Repellex for their green-spirited approach to this pesky problem. As voles retreat, vole and mole tracks naturally disappear. These ingredients are safe for humans, pets, and even for the pests you are repelling. You will want to let the product dry to decrease the smell of the garlic and castor oil, but they are totally non-toxic to your children and your dogs or cats!

Voles destroy flowers, plants and vegetable gardens by destroying the roots of your garden as they burrow along in the ground. Repellex aims not to kill voles but to repel them from the garden before they eat the roots and sometimes the rest of your plants. The aim is to make the garden an unfriendly habitat, so the voles, moles and gophers will not take up residence within.

What about your vegetable gardens? Wondering how you will get rid of moles burrowing through there, who might destroy roots and root crops as they search for their food, worms? You can safely use these products in your vegetable garden as well. The only cautionaries given are to be aware of the effect of the product on the leaves, as they may cause slight burning of leaves when exposed to light. Otherwise, moles begone!!

Gardeners will rest easily having applied these products. So what’s involved? Apply Repellex systemic tablets to the area of concern. These tablets are watered into the area, and the Repellex ingredients are actually absorbed into the plants system. When a mole attempts to eat the plant, it gets a mouthful of repulsive garlic and castor oil, and is repelled from the area.

The other approach, is to use Repellex Gopher and Mole repellent spray, which is absorbed into the soil, and coats plants’ surfaces. In this way, moles and voles are repelled by the smell as they approach an area. Repellex.com can give you all the information you need about Repellex Gopher and Mole Repellent, and moles and voles will be banished!

This is a shared photo by friends from Facebook to denounce the cutting of trees in Baguio City to give way to the construction of a multi-level parking bay by a well-known shopping mall.  We don’t have the money or power to counter what this big business(es) is up to, but we can do something to make people aware of the adverse effects of disrespect to nature.
