What a wonderful contest.Thank you for holding it

This is the Kinzville Community Recycle and Reuse Center


Click the image to open in full size.


We have many solar powered and energy efficient items in our center and many items have been reused to make new items. Plastic bottles are reused to water the plants and solar lamps are used for lighting.

Please allow Snowdrop to give you a tour around our wonderful community center.

In the center of the room (and hard to miss) is our solar powered night light. With two walls made completely of recycled glass it is good to have some light in the center at night. So each day the solar lamp soaks up the sunlight and each night it puts off a soft glowing light. Not too bright though so it won't disturb the plants growing.

Which brings us to the garden corner. Here at the center we take the air we breathe very seriously. Plants and trees help keep the air clean so we try to do our part by keeping live plants and flowers growing in the center. Outside we have lots of trees growing too. We also have miniature orange trees located around the center as well. Feel free to pick one, they are there for everyone to share and enjoy.

Moving along towards the upper corner of the room. Here we have our storage section of reusable goodies. You can find everything from crayons to empty yogurt cups. You will also notice our ball bin in this area. Used tennis and golf balls are brought in and stored here so they can be reused by others.

I'm sure you've noticed all the pictures on the walls. We are quite proud of those. Every piece of artwork is made with recycled paper. A local artist and dear friend comes in every week and works with the local children to make different pictures. The children love tearing up the paper and sorting items out to help our artistic friend. When finished, the pictures are sold at a local art gallery and the money is used to buy more trees and items needed for the community to help keep it healthy and beautiful.

Next is our paper recycling area. Shelves are filled with used books and magazines for the community to reuse. Be sure to bring it back when your finished reading it so someone else can enjoy it too. Old newspapers can also be found in this section. You will find a paper recycling bin outside for your convenience as well when dropping off your old papers, books and magazines.

The last area in our tour is the washing and sorting station. The water in the well is water we are reusing from our rain barrels (located outside for obvious reasons). We use that water to wash out the cans and plastic bottles and water the plants. After they are clean the cans and bottles are sorted into the proper containers.

Thank you for visiting us today. Join us next week for a tour of the grounds outside where you'll find our tree farm and community garden.

Help keep your community beautiful and your planet healthy!

Titan Tinkerpup, Inventor; Working toward a Solution

Click the image to open in full size.

Titan Tinkerpup is fast asleep after a very tiring, but enjoyable, day of Tinkering. That is what he does best. He is the top student in the Technical Class at DaVinciSchool (named after the famous artist and inventor) and just soaks up every word the teacher says. He made his own Steam Powered TV and a Wind-up Fridge as a class project. He is working hard to find new products which require alternative energy. He uses solar energy for his whirlpool bath and to heat the oil for his unique shower. He requires an oil bath or shower at least twice a week to keep his joints loose and healthy. He is made of metal after all. His toilet (another one of his inventions) requires a minimum amount of water to flush.

His hobbies include jigsaw puzzles and sports. He also loves logic problems, cards, and studying robotics. These activities require no electricity at all. Some of his best friends are robots and they love to stop by his loft to exchange ideas and camaraderie. Even his robotic friends hook up to solar panels when they are resting. They all recycle. Titan takes the oil after his oil bath, processes it through a special steam powered filter and uses it in his hybrid vehicles. Even his stove is solar powered. You can’t see it but he has a windmill outside that supplements the solar panels during cloudy spells. He uses all of the new energy efficient light bulbs in his lamps. Even his massage sofa has a rechargeable solar battery. He takes all of his newspapers, cans and bottles to the recycle center in one of his hybrids twice a month. He tries to buy items with minimum packaging and he shops with his own reusable canvas bags. He makes a compost heap out of food scraps and grass clippings so he can fertilize his garden. What he can’t grow himself he buys locally, usually at the farmer’s market. He knows this helps the environment because these items don’t have to be transported as far and therefore less gasoline is used to get them to market. He collects rainwater in large barrels to water his bonsai trees and spider plants which provide cleaner air for his loft. The stone walls and small windows provide excellent insulation from the weather. Yes Titan has done a lot to help the environment. But he never stops looking for new and better ways to conserve. And neither should we..

This is my "green" room . I have my Panda, Ash, and my Monkey, Auburn, sleeping in here, to show that the great panda and different types of monkeys are endangered. Ash is sleeping in a rose-petaled bed (he and Auburn gathered the rose petals and vines themselves) and has a banana tree (for a quick snack whenever he gets hungry) and an energy efficent lamp that provides light and power for his fridge (which he stores bananas and extra Bamboo Canelloni in). Over on my right hand side, there is two trees, which are used to make oxygen so my little babies can breathe fresh air. (: There is also a mirror, hand-made out of stone and extra vines left over from their beds. On Auburns side, she has the same rose-bed as Ash, and same tree, but she eats many many more bananas, as she is a monkey. (And eats Ash's when he isn't paying attention!) Finally, in the bottom left corner, there is two more trees that give fresh air and also smell delightful. There is also a TV that Auburn built herself (that has only nature shows, and works from the power that the solar panels on top of their house give off) with help from her friend Grayson the Koala. The couch was something Ash found in an abandoned clubhouse in the woods, as was the chair, but Auburn just HAD to decorate with flowers and vines!

I really hope you like it!

panda design contest for wi.jpg

For our green room (Winter and Mocha, seen here) we took to the tree top to harness the energy of the sun and wind. Our beds are made of all natural materials: stone, leaves, wood and vines.

Our garden is watered with the rain water captured by our all natural slide that we built from bamboo that we grow around the slide. It captures the rainwater to feed the stream that runs through the center of our garden. This keeps the soil nourished and moist and gives us a healthy garden. We use the seeds from the vegetables to replant more vegetables and eat the vegetables themselves to keep us healthy. We also eat some of the sunflower seeds and use the rest to plant more flowers. What we are not able to eat, we put in a compost pile in the center behind the garden and use as fertilizer for the bamboo and vegetable garden, so nothing goes to waste.

Our light source is a natural pink crystal that is solar, powered by the sun. We tell time by our sun dial and our transportation is a balloon, powered by the wind, aided by our windmill. We built our balloon out of the leaves from the pants in our gardens.

Our chairs are fashioned from two large hibuscus flowers that are also quite soft and comfy.

For exercise, Winter flies and both animals run and can climb the ladder and both can go down the slide for fun.

We are very cozy in our home and love that it is all done using renewable energy and natural products that can be recycled. Thanks for visiting

Here's my entry:

This is my Webkinz Green Room. Our room is powered by solar energy, which provides energy to power the fountain, heat the room, and air-condition it. The room is also made to grow a variety of plants, including sunflowers, bamboo, palm trees, roses, amaryllises, and bonzai trees. We also grow fresh oranges, a favorite treat of my pets! The pedestals are also made of bamboo. We change the plants periodically, to give the room a fresh new look, and to grow more plants! It's stylish, comfortable, and great for entertaining friends! We enjoy the room so much, sometimes we forget it's environmentally friendly!

Obviously, you can see that our Webkinz Green Room is one of our favorite places to hang out. It's a terrific place to read, draw, or practice our green thumb! We hope you'll enjoy the room as much as we do!

It's so sad that the Panda is on the endangered species list. When my Panda (and self-proclaimed black belt) Timothy learned how much hos species is at risk, he threw a fit. With a bit of help from webkinznumber1's mom, mamakat521, Timothy transformed his room into an eco-friendly laboratory/bedroom/guest room. See? One of the reasons it's eco-friendly is that it's 3 in 1! The lamps are solar powered, he used a "recycled" trampoline instead of buying one, and he turns of the A/C and instead opens the window. Here it is!
Spoiler: show



Hope you like it, Justin!

This is a great contest. Good luck to everone!

This is my Wekinz Green House
They grow plants & trees & donate them to the community. They enjoy sitting in their apple tree chairs that were made from recycled items. Even their clothes are recycled! They power their house with solar power. And make their own compost. Once a month they have a How To class to teach those in their community how to live green.

"Knowledge empowers us," says Professor Lemuria to her eager audience at the Green Day Enlightenment Gathering. "The more we all become aware of the damage and dangers we impose on our planet, the more we can start doing to help make changes."

Professor Lemuria loves our Earth and all its creatures. So many, like the lemur, are now on the endangered species list, due to the carelessness of humans. People could learn so much simply from observing animals. Lemurs, like many other animals, play a role in the ecology of their environment. In Madagascar and other islands, lemurs disperse seeds from the fruits they eat.
This promotes new plant growth, especially at a time when it is needed so greatly. Deforestation is one of the major reasons lemurs are on the endangered species list.

As you can see from her lecture, she touches upon many things--beautiful trees; being outside
and getting good exercise such as on trampollines and skateboards, which also save gas and emissions that pollute the air. The book she has brought teaches about growing our own food, and she also talks about harnessing the power of the wind; using firelight rather than electric light. Most importantly, she stresses coming together as a caring community to help save our planet.

Hello everyone,

What a great contest! I usually don't enter these, but I had a room that I thought was great for submission. This is Coco in her study!

Click the image to open in full size.

Coco's study has been made of brick walls that were recycled from the farm her parents lived on, and recycled glass window panes. The glass allows the room to be naturally warmed, as well as naturally cooled, and saves on lighting as it uses natural sunlight. Coco only uses it during the day, so she doesn't have any lighting fixtures. The floors are made of recycled bamboo flooring, which has been made to look like hardwood. Coco thinks it keeps her feet nice and comfy.

All of Coco's furniture is made of bamboo and eco friendly materials (twine of plant fibers), and house all of her plants. The cut flowers were grown in her backyard, and are housed in plastic containers who are made of recycled bottles. The cactus, and various other plants do not require a great deal of water, just sunlight, so they are very at home in the study. The plants clean the air for Coco, and the light from the sun helps them to produce their own food, so they stay very healthy!

On Coco's desk you'll see the Arte book, which features Arte in the Jungle on the front cover. Coco got this book from her older cousin, so it's a bit worn, but she loves that Arte is in the lush green jungle, immersed in nature! Beside Arte's book, she has the Caring Valley Handbook, because she'd like to try her hand at growing a few trees to clean the air in her yard. Coco's also wearing hand me down clothing from her cousin, which she will pass on once she grows out of them!

Thanks for stopping by! Coco's going out to garden now

This room is called blue jay's garden. This room is one of my 'green' rooms. The fences are made out of flowers and are totaly biodegradable. The fountian reuses it's water so it's not waisting a drop. The trampolene is made completely out of recycled materials. The lights in the middle run on solar power and so does the accorn grill. The table and chairs are also made intierly out of recycled material. The sun clock as you probably know runs on the sun. All the plants in this room are real and not fake. The stepping stones are real stones and the ponds and bird bath all share the same water. As you can see this room is really really 'green'.
