When she broke up with her abuser, two weeks later he shot and killed her. Tiffanie’s friends and family wanted to make a difference and put an end to dating violence, so they started B-LOVE.

A Word about Recycling — March 29

The other day, when going to buy groceries at H-E-B, as I was putting a plastic bag full of plastic newspaper sleeves, other plastic bags, thin plastic wrappings, etc., in the container outside the store to recycle them, I started wondering, with them being so light, how many pounds of them get recycled by customers of just this one food chain. So I asked.
Leslie Sweet, from the H-E-B Public Affairs office, informed me, “We’re proud of our customers to report that they recycled almost six million pounds of plastic bags through our in-store recycling in 2014.”
