Do you know @upcycledantiparos ? It’s the perfect initiative to support! Verna McGeachin makes beautiful bags, pouches, straw cases and many other nice things, out of plastic bags, coffee bags, builders supplies bags, old clothes, and all the materials she can upcycle! All profits go to Animal Welfare Antiparos and refugees in Greece. How perfect is that?!! 🙏😊🌍 It totally responds to the Zero Waste mantra to reuse before trying to recycle! ♻️ it adds one more use before it can (maybe) be recycled! And on top of it, it’s for a good cause! ❤️
If you have old plastic bags, you can keep them and give them to her! Don’t forget to Refuse plastic bags in the first place, of course! But something has to be done with the existing ones! She has run out of stock but she’s starting to make more products!

The #church of Agios Ioannis Spiliotis on #Antiparos has its origins in the 17th century. It‘s located at the entrance of a giant #cave that goes 85 meters deep down and houses 45-million-years-old stalactites as well as many visitors’ inscriptions from centuries ago including #alexanderthegreat .
..granatepletreet trengte mere lys og oliventreet mere luft, så skikkelig hage-trimmings for to uker siden...og da tittet «oregano-fjellene» på Paros fram i morgenlyset når vi dro 🌛 #antiparos#homegrown#autumn#harvest#gardenwork ...skulle gjerne sett en liten fugl i treet der nå 🍃
I have been very blessed to be matched with this young lady. She’s someone who’s down for the adventure, grind, and most importantly family. Fortunately I found someone who made it a point that my family meet her family within the first month of knowing each other. Lol The first time having my family meet a girlfriends family was pretty exhilarating. That was something I was not use to and absolutely fell in love with. Young lady, Thank you for being a homey and letting me love you my way.
PS we have a 200 page published stick figure book coming out for purchase within the next year telling the 3 part story of how we met on the adventurous night of my fathers stroke/ coma to catch an emergency flight out to Texas and how I had to have lil john john aspirated in the ER after a night at the @westinnapa . Last but not least. Shout out to my Eskimo Brothers for not falling in love with her and giving me the opportunity to have her in my life•
