FACEBOOK has recently changed its rules for Business Pages (again!!). So, here's the deal; A person has to be 'active' on your page a minimum of 3 times within any calendar month period. This means a 'like' of a picture, a comment or a full post on the wall. If a person is not active on your page, as listed above, after a month of no activity, their 'like' will be removed from your page, as FB has decided they are not interested in your page! How cheeky is that! So, if you are a fan of any pages, do make sure you are regularly active. Even just one quick post a week will ensure that the page will remain in your timeline.. It's also been found that the more Likes or Comments any one post receives, the more people that see it in their Newsfeed. So if you see a post or photo from any Business page you are a fan of make sure you like it, or even comment on it. Help keep small Businesses running Please COPY & PASTE this onto your Business Page Wall if you have one!!

3Rs – Reduce, Reuse & Recycle Tips on reducing waste and conserving resources. The three R's – reduce, reuse and recycle – all help to cut down on the amount of waste we throw away. They conserve natural resources, landfill space and energy. Plus, the three R's save land and money communities must use to dispose of waste in landfills. Siting a new landfill has become difficult and more expensive due to environmental regulations and public opposition. REDUCE: The best way to manage waste is to not produce it. This can be done by shopping carefully and being aware of a few guidelines: •Buy products in bulk. Larger, economy-size products or ones in concentrated form use less packaging and usually cost less per ounce. •Avoid over-packaged goods, especially ones packed with several materials such as foil, paper, and plastic. They are difficult to recycle, plus you pay more for the package. •Avoid disposable goods, such as paper plates, cups, napkins, razors, and lighters. Throwaways contribute to the problem, and cost more because they must be replaced again and again. •Buy durable goods – ones that are well-built or that carry good warranties. They will last longer, save money in the long run and save landfill space. •At work, make two-sided copies when ever possible. •Maintain central files rather than using several files for individuals. •Use electronic mail or main bulletin board. •Remove your name from the mailing lists of materials you no longer want to receive: write to Mail Preference Service, c/o Direct Marketing Assoc., P.O. Box 90008, Farmingdale, NY 11735. •Use cloth napkins instead of paper napkins. •Use a dish cloth instead of paper towels. REUSE: It makes economic and environmental sense to reuse products. Sometimes it takes creativity: •Reuse products for the same purpose. Save paper and plastic bags, and repair broken appliances, furniture and toys. •Reuse products in different ways. Use a coffee can to pack a lunch; use plastic microwave dinner trays as picnic dishes. •Sell old clothes, appliances, toys, and furniture in garage sales or ads, or donate them to charities. •Use reseal able containers rather than plastic wrap. •Use a ceramic coffee mug instead of paper cups. •Reuse grocery bags or bring your own cloth bags to the store. Do not take a bag from the store unless you need one. RECYCLE: Recycling is a series of steps that takes a used material and processes, remanufactures, and sells it as a new product. Begin recycling at home and at work: •Buy products made from recycled material. Look for the recycling symbol or ask store managers or salesmen. The recycling symbol means one of two things – either the product is made of recycled material, or the item can be recycled. For instance, many plastic containers have a recycling symbol with a numbered code the identifies what type of plastic resin it is made from. However, just because the container has this code does not mean it can be easily recycled locally. •Check collection centers and curbside pickup services to see what they accept, and begin collecting those materials. These can include metal cans, newspapers, paper products, glass, plastics and oil. •Consider purchasing recycled materials at work when purchasing material for office supply, office equipment or manufacturing. •Speak to store managers and ask for products and packaging that help cut down on waste, such as recycled products and products that are not over packaged. •Buy products made from material that is collected for recycling in your community. •Use recycled paper for letterhead, copier paper and newsletters. Some Facts About San Antonio's Recycling Program: • Pickup of recyclables is once a week and differs depending on your neighborhood. • The City wants to reward households that do an excellent job of recycling in their blue cart. Residents that recycle consistently and correctly can nominate themselves to be recognized as STAR recyclers of San Antonio: Nomination Form • If you live within the City of San Antonio's city limits, call 3-1-1 to establish new service. Once your request has been processed, your garbage (brown) cart and recycling (blue) cart will be delivered to your household. • Take plastic bags back to participating retailers for recycling. DO NOT throw them in your blue recycle bin! • You can learn more by going to the City's Recycling Overview site. Paper and Plastics: •Paper: Most types of paper, such as ad circulars, catalogs, carbonless paper, dry goods packaging with liners removed (example: cereal, pasta, rice, beer/soda cartons) envelopes, file folders, flattened cardboard, junk mail, magazines, newspapers, office paper, paperback books, paper bags, paper towel/toilet paper cores, phone books, non-metallic gift wrap. •Plastics: Labeled #1 through #7 on the package, look for a recycling logo on the bottom or back of the container. Remove lids and rinse. Examples: beverage bottle, shampoo and lotion bottles, meat trays, condiment bottles, prescription and medicine bottles. •Glass Bottles and Jars All Colors: Remove lids and rinse all food and liquids. Examples: beverage bottles, food and condiment bottles and jars (jelly, mustard, mayonnaise). •Metal Cans: Aluminum, steel and tin beverage and food cans, rinse all food or liquids, aerosol cans, empty and remove nozzle, baking tins, rinse and remove remaining food. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) tells us these recycling facts: •56% of all paper used by households in America in 2007 was recycled – a whopping 360 lbs per person! •Recycling 1 ton of paper saves 17 mature trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, 2 barrels of oil, and 4,100 kilowatt-hours of electricity •Recycling paper instead of making it from new material generates 74 percent less air pollution and uses 50 percent less water. •Producing recycled paper requires about 60 percent of the energy used to make paper from virgin wood pulp.
