Safe Recycling: Celebrate #NationalBatteryDay With Us + #Giveaway!

Let’s talk batteries for a minute. We all use them; basic things like smoke detectors, flashlights, remotes.

We actually go through quite a lot of them, in all shapes and sizes, and ‘Mom! I need batteries for *insert random toy*!’ can be heard on a weekly basis

PSD18

One in five students here in Canada are affected by bullies. One in five! That’s a dreadful statistic.

He’s quite the little collector too and likes to frequent thrift stores on treasure hunts looking for rare ‘new’  Cars characters to add to his collection which is nearing 100. That seems like a lot until you consider that each movie has 100-ish characters, and many of them with multiple paint jobs or accessories, various daydream
