Saturday Art Session – Greensleeves Children’s Home

Art Session – We host on art session for the children at Greensleeves childrens home on Saturday, 19th June 2010.  Great fun was had by all including the “adults” that come with me to help out.

By the end of the session the lines had blurred so much between adult and child, that there were only two adults left to supervise, Silvia, the house mom and myself!

We donated the art materials bought for the session to the children and we will use the artworks they did in various projects to raise funds to continue with the monthly adventures.

If anyone would like to help us out with the art session, we are always in need of art supplies, used paper and helpers to help me supervise.  We also like to spoil the little people with juice, snacks and some sweets when we go there, donations of these items are always appreciated.

 

We wish to thank the following people who gave so generously to our art session:

  • Lindi Ritcher
  • Lisa Nano
  • Monique Jewell
  • Bronwyn Higgs
  • Mom Saunders
  • Carmen de Lange for the cupcakes
  • Christie Rusch for the cooldrink and sweets
  • Ethan and Lucas Nicholas for the sweets
  • Ben and Jarrod for their time
  • Mark, my hubby for his time, patience and persistance in finding the right directions 🙂

Word of the Day – Sodium Palmate

Sodium Palmate: the salt found in palm oil used as a gentle cleanser and a by-product of the soap making process.

Used as a base ingredient in soap making and cosmetics. Sodium palmate is a core ingredient in many types of soap and is made from palm oil.

It is often combined with sodium cocoate, coconut oil sodium salt and the sodium salt of animal fat, sodium tallow. Together these three are one the major constituents of modern soap base. Base soap is the pure soap that has had no additional ingredients like color and scent added to it yet.

As base soap ingredients the hardest formulas use a mix of all three (sodium palmate, sodium cocoate, sodium tallow) in various combinations

To read more on the changes environmental groups are trying to make to the farming of palm oil, try this site http://www.voxy.co.nz/business/food-and-grocery-council-joins-roundtable-sustainable-palm-oil/5/52642.  There are various debates on the impact of farming palm oil.  There are vastly different views and so many opinions that I can’t tell who’s done the most research. 

I feel it is import for us to informed and know what the impact our product choices have on the planet.  It doesn’t hurt to be educated, some food for thought 🙂

Recycling Starts At Home

Recycling Starts at Home – It Starts With You

 

What can I recycle?
Recycling is one of the easiest ways to help save the planet. Check out the recycling directory to find out about recycling initiatives in your area.

Put separate containers for paper, glass and plastics in your kitchen or garage and start dividing your waste. Many recycling service providers don’t even require that you separate the various recyclables in which case you can have them all in one bin.

You’ll be pleasantly surprised with how few things you actually have to throw out. Soon you’ll think differently about waste. Suddenly a yogurt tub is not rubbish, but a nifty container and a jam jar becomes a new flower-pot…

Here’s a guide to recyclables:

  • Newspapers

Word of the Day – Sodium Tallowate

Sodium Tallowate – salt extracted from animal fat and is found in many commercially made soap products. It is inexpensive and plentiful, and has been known to clog pores.

Meaning soaps with this ingredient are not animal friendly and/or have been tested on animals.

Definitely will take this popular soap off my list and another good reason to try make your own.
