Green Friday

Ok, so the picture doesn't really have anything to do with what I'm about to (excitedly) tell you, but for those of us in the great white north with the everlasting winter, I thought it would be a treat to dream with your eye's wide open!  This is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to in South America and the memory of that day is still engraved in all my senses.  It's also the greenest picture in my file, since that's really the point.

Every day is Earth Day.  
Yesterday, while buying supplies at Snyder Paints in Goshen I discovered a brand spanking new line of paint that is made from recycled paint by a company called RepcoLite!  Take any brand in, as long as it's water based, and has not been kept in a storage area that freezes, and doesn't smell like mold.  They will give you vouchers for $1.00 per gallon, towards their new paint.
Then they send it to their plant where it's tested, and brought up to their standards of quality, and tinted to Pottery Barn Colors.  It's an eggshell finish-perfect for any walls.   The price per gallon is only $22.00.  How fantastic is that!?

So here's the deal, if you can't get to Goshen to recycle your paint (latex only) then drop it off when we're open and we'll do it for you.  You won't get the dollar, but your paint will be recycled!
