November 15-Celebrate Sustainability

America Recycles Day encourages us to recycle, and use products made from recycled material. Recycling is not difficult. It sends less material to the waste stream ,and it results in consuming less of our precious and limited natural resources.

The Boy Scouts of America has the right slogan for this topic: "Reduce, Re-use, and Recycle"

Did You Know? According to a presidential proclamation by President George W. Bush, each person in America produces about four pounds of waste every day!

Origin of America Recycles Day:
President George W. Bush issued a presidential proclamation declaring November 15, 2004 as America Recycles Day.

We believe the roots of this day goes back a few years before this presidential proclamation to around 1997. The National Recycling Coalition appears to have played a role in its creation. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) also promotes this day.

Sage Hill Farms is dedicated to recycling on many levels.

One major method we use is composting garden and kitchen waste.

When done properly this process takes waste of fruit and vegetable peels, eggshells,
coffee/tea grounds, leaves, grass clippings, and other garden waste and easily turns it into rich and healthy soil for the gardens next crop.

Herbs and vegetables grown in this medium are healthy and free of chemicals and therefore healthier for the body and mind.

(Holiday Tea Blend is now available at the Sage Hill Farms website.)

Take a tour and let your senses lead the way.

Happy Holiday Season~
