Finally. Our 3 Years Worth of Used PUR® Filters Will be Recycled!

When the end of year comes, I thoroughly clean my house as a Japanese custom to make a fresh start on a new year. I am writing this blog in the middle of the cleaning because I am so excited that I found my 3-year worth stack of the used PUR® filters can finally be recycled. My long waiting finally paid off!            

The company who recycle the filters is TerraCycle®. They also recycle other PUR® items. You can check out the program here. As a recycling enthusiast, I instantly became a fan of TerraCycle® when I saw many different items they recycle. 

Now I've got four 2 - 3 lbs. boxes to send them. They even cover shipping cost for you. Oh I am so happy and thankful for TerraCycle. 

All right. I am going to go back to cleaning. 

Wishing you all a happy new year!!!

"Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole." - Roger A. Caras.

I love animals. I tend to become a bit more crazy especially when it comes to dogs. I had a dog in our family who made my life whole. He did not speak our language, but he would entertain us and cheer us up in his own way. He passed away over a decade ago but all good memories come back when I think of him. Thanks to the experiences with him, I learned to respect all living beings. 

It makes me feel joyful when I see happy animals with caring owners. 

Recently I released two dog-themed collections with my feelings of gratitude to dogs for being great friends to us, and to people who take good care of their furry friends. 

Please come and check out my official website or Etsy shop to browse the newly added collections! 
More will gradually be added.
