Earth Day in Build-A-BearVille (TM)

April 22, 2008

Today, Tuesday April 22, 2008 is Earth Day!

This is a day to stop and think about your affect on the environment and what you can do to help protect it. Earth Day falls every year on April 22, in celebration of the importance of the earth and to encourage action. Recycling is one of the easiest ways to show you care about the environment! It reduces the amount of waste in landfills, and prevents hazardous materials from leaking into our soil and watersystems. Waste like paper products, aluminum or steel cans, cardboard boxes, obsolete electronics and glass or plastic bottles are a few examples of easy recyclables. Do you have a recycling program in your home, office or school?

You can also shop for products made from recycled content. These are products made from materials contained in the products you recycle like aluminum soda cans or newspaper, toner cartridges or computers. Post consumer content is a material that has served its intended use and instead of being disposed of it is being reused in a different product.

We know as Build-A-BearVille citizens, from going on the Nature Walk, that we can create a compost pile to show we care about the environment too. Food scraps and other compost can improve the properties of the soil! Click on the Nature Walk Post in the sidebar for a few more examples of what to make a compost pile from.

Ways to show your green spirit in Build-A-BearVille.com™ April 22 –

29:

  • Visit Bearemy in Town Square to get a Free Earth Day tee
  • Play the Gone Fishing game and earn triple points for helping clean up the community
Great Pics Sammik of the Green Party! Nice work on the party Kitten – that’s why you’re the Social Queen!

    April 22, 2008 8:29 am

    closed here too. I was in earlier and when I clicked on Bearemy for the t-shirt, he was not giving it out. They are probably fixing that

  7. April 22, 2008 10:46 am

    I would like to join the fun. I am not certain that I can make it because I am supposed to go out with a friend this evening and I am not sure how long it will take. I agree to the rules and I recycle paper and plastics, I re-use grocery bags, and request not to get a bag at a store if I don’t buy very much. I also planted some daisies and sunflowers to help add plants to what little yard there is at my apartment. 🙂

    so everyone is having the problem with the shirt? I thought Bearemy just didn’t like me….LOL

  10. JessBearHug permalink
    April 22, 2008 11:50 am

    Ok, it’s up and running. I was able to get the shirt. They added a new feature. If you have new Bear Mail, your PDA flashes to tell you that there is new mail. Also, the fishing has been fixed. No more jumping in between. It was all well worth the wait. No hopefully when I log back in later, it will all still be working right 🙂

    My hearts for your hearts fur you puppy spoke to me and did an emoticon. She also had 4 cleaning brushes? on her feet and was cleaning the floor of my cub condo.

    My pink hearts teddy is sweeping with a broom. Pink leopard is doing it as well.

  13. amieverysweet permalink
    April 22, 2008 12:20 pm

    When I double click on the animal in the condo it opens up a list which gives the following choices: blow a kiss, wave, dance, eat a snack, sweep the floor, look out the window, how are you?, please come here.

  14. JessBearHug permalink
    April 22, 2008 12:26 pm

    They added some new purses and bags in the store. The GREEN earth day bag is something you have to buy. The Green earth day shirt is free from Bearemy in the Town Square.

  15. JessBearHug permalink
    April 22, 2008 12:32 pm

    Ok, my bear did the talking and the emticons. Then he started to eat an apple, went to look out the windows, pulled out a broom and started sweeping. This was all without telling him anything.

    Thanks amieverysweet, I didn’t know about the list. When I click on the items on the list, nothing he does matches what he says it will do. More glitches.

    But it’s all cute.

    That is wierd. Mine does what is on the list. But sometimes she does start to do something else after she does what I click on.

    My turtle talking and stuff is SO CUTE! I’d like to go to the party, but not sure what the problem has been with my posting (I just tripple checked my e-mail, so maybe this time?)

    What I’ve done this week?

    Taken in a slew of recyclables. Lived without AC. Don’t think I’ve printed on a new sheet of paper in months (I reuse the back side of paper from work.) Probably some more. 🙂 And the rules are A-OK with me!

    I don’t know if I will be on during the party but just in case I agree to the rules. I reuse all of my cereal, cracker, popcorn boxes, etc. by using them when I mail things. I ship stuff every day so I reuse alot of boxes.

    sarahbear371, I just came to visit but you weren’t home. Next time.

    I agree with you about the language. I think everyone needs to be mindful when posting.

    I think what happens is that sometimes there are SO many posts in a short period of time (like today!!), and Freya does have a real life and a real job and a real family off of here so I’m sure there are things that slip by the first round that she might not catch right away. It’s a tough job and we do appreciate her tremendously.

  51. kitten1462 permalink
    April 22, 2008 10:32 pm

    Yes, I agree completely with jess. Freya, you work very hard in the virtual and real world and everybody appreciates it. 😀 🙂

    Jess, what den are you in?

    I’m in Camp Bear. My bear just said “Let’s decorate my room.” “Let’s go shopping.” I think BABW has the right idea. Teach the bears to make us spend more money 🙂

  53. April 22, 2008 11:38 pm

    sorry I couldn’t make it in time to get to the party. My babv name is clairebearystylin20. 🙂 kinda long…but oh well…

    I agree with katherinebeardiva3 and sandrasan31. Does anyone having any whisper trouble? I do, everytime i tried to whisper back to someone, it starts having weird numbers on them. I contact the BABV helpers a few days ago, but they didn’t answered yet. Do you think it’ll take about i week for them to answer? Usually they respond to me in a week or less.
