Austin and Mom

Another April celebration is Earth Day, so included in this issue are articles about recycling and going green. I am proud to say my family does our part and are always looking for new ways to recycle. Feel free to contribute your recycling ideas by joining the conversation on Facebook or by emailing us. To all our moms out there, Happy Mother’s Day from Jersey Shore Family! If you think you deserve pampering this Mother’s Day (I know I do), drop a hint to your supportive and loving husband that you could really use a gift certificate to one of our great salons and spas such as Elite or A Bella. See their ads for more details. Be sure to check out the Mother’s Day Gift Guide for more ideas. Thanks for all of your wonderful submissions to the Jersey Shore Family’s Best Teacher Contest.

P.S. I would like to send Jersey Shore Family’s condolences to the Clopp Family from Mays Landing on the tragic loss of their brave son Christian. Although I personally do not know the family, their frequent Facebook updates expressing the family’s ups and downs as a result of their son’s fight against cancer touched not only my heart, but the hearts of many South Jersey residents.

Easter was always an exciting holiday when I was growing up. I would spend the night with my grandparents the night before Easter, and I could SWEAR I heard the Easter bunny scooting across the floor in the night. Upon waking I’d bolt out of bed to see what candy and other treats I’d been brought, then we’d head to church for Easter services and a massive egg hunt. My day would end in a sugar coma on the couch, watching “The Wizard of Oz” with my parents. Below are 8 ideas for Easter traditions you can try with your own kids. Pick and choose a few of them each year … and stick with the ones your family loves!

1 2

There are so many great treats your family can make together a night or two before Easter. Dying and decorating hardboiled eggs is a classic, but you could also make something out of the ordinary like Jell-o eggs or egg-shaped sugar cookies. Last year my husband and kids made Rice Krispy eggs dipped in melted chocolate chips, then they added sprinkles before the chocolate set. Kids enjoy sharing with others … and being sneaky! When dark hits the night before Easter, sneak over to a favorite neighbor’s (or drive to a close-by friend’s) and scatter eggs in their front yard. You can mix and match hard-boiled and plastic eggs. Fill plastic eggs with candy, coins, tattoos, stickers, erasers, etc. Even though doing an anonymous fun thing is great, these days you should probably leave a note or card on their door so they know it was you and not some crazy person putting stuff in their yard!

Egg-citing Easter Traditions pet stores and zoos. Some stores have promotional days where you can come in and pet and hold these little sweeties and take pictures. And if you’re looking for a family pet, bunnies are a great option for an Easter gift to the family.


Get your child’s picture taken with the Easter bunny. This is one I could kick myself for not doing yet, but it’s pretty simple. Just check the website of your local mall to find out if they’re hosting an Easter bunny event. Be ready to shell out a few bucks for a photo, or take plenty of your own.


Easter baskets for the kids are a given, but they don’t have to be over-the-top. You can buy a simple empty basket at a craft store and fill it with things like pastel Peeps, toys, small books, plastic eggs filled with candy, etc. If you’re pressed for time and don’t know how you’ll be able to assemble an Easter basket, no matter how small, just buy one ready-made! You’re still an amazing parent, and your kid won’t care or remember that it was store-bought. If you have time but are short on money, bake treats to put in the baskets, make a special card for your child or write out coupons for things like getting out of chores or an ice cream cone out with just Mom. Don’t forget about your older kids on Easter … everyone can appreciate an Easter basket!

family friendly flicks • A Bug’s Life • Charlotte ’s Web • Flushed Away • Lilo and Stitch • Monster’s Inc. • Shrek


An Easter egg hunt can be held just about anywhere. Some churches have them days before Easter, and you don’t have to belong to that church. My church doesn’t hold an Easter egg hunt, so we have one in my mom’s yard after church on Easter Sunday. Family all pitches in and hides plastic eggs filled with candy, sugarless gum, dollar bills and more.You could also hide eggs the night before in your own yard (or even around the house!) after your kids go to sleep so they can have an afterbreakfast hunt at their own home!


Get together with family for a special meal. If you won’t be able to be with family this Easter, invite some friends and neighbors over for a potluck meal at your place. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant … a ready-made ham, paper plates and plastic cutlery just mean less time in the kitchen and more time with loved ones.


End the day relaxing with a bowl of Easter candy, some popcorn and a movie the whole family can enjoy. After a fun day celebrating Easter in all the ways you love, end your family day with some “hanging out” time. Nobody is allowed to text or play handheld video games or email. This is a time to snuggle up around the TV and reflect on the gift of family and friends.


Bunnies and chicks are the unofficial mascots of Easter, so find a place where your child can pet some! Depending on where you live, bunnies and chicks can be found at kid-friendly farms,

The event is held rain or shine and all are encouraged to attend this fun and educational event. Over 100 vendors, crafters and exhibitors will be part of the celebration. “There are exciting sustainable environmental initiatives happening right here in Atlantic County,” said ACUA President Rick Dovey. “We want to encourage everyone to think globally and act locally,” Dovey added. “The Earth Day celebration not only entertains those who attend, but also helps educate participants about the importance of protecting our environment and how easily we can all do our part,” said Dovey. Free workshops will be held every hour between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the amphitheater. Topics include Native Plants, Rain Barrel Construction, Home Composting and Community Supported Agriculture. Leeds Avenue School Butterfly Project -Learn from an expert educator who has traveled to the Monarch’s winter migration destination in Mexico about this beautiful native species and how we can support them right in our own yards. Pledge to make part of your yard a butterfly habitat and receive a free milkweed plant! “Rock the Boat” by the NJ Academy for Aquatic Sciences Ever wonder where a Hippo hides, or what a Shark loves to eat? Find out as you sing along in this exciting musical jubilee of rollicking original seafaring tunes. The musicians from Little Fish Theatre Collaborative explore the world of life beneath the seas! Cape May County Park and Zoo and “What Makes a Mammal” Ever wonder why an animal is called a mammal? Why isn’t a dog a reptile, or a bird? All animals are unique in their own way, but some things distinguish them to a certain group or class of animals. Come discover what it takes to be called “a Mammal”. Earth Day Wood Craft with Home Depot Join Home Depot and make your own nature wood craft between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (while supplies last!) Tour of the Wind Farm -The public is welcome to tour NJ’s first commercial wind farm. Participants will be shuttled to the wind farm from the Environmental Park.

There will also be stops at the Environmental Protection Agency, and at the Delta Thermo Waste-to-Energy demo project. Eco Hayrides, a perennial favorite, take visitors to the top of the landfill for panoramic views of the area, including Atlantic City and the Jersey-Atlantic Wind Farm. Seedlings- The ACUA will be giving out free beach plum seedlings, as well as free seed packets. Entertainment-There will be live entertainment throughout the day. Highlights include Dave Street, who is an environmental

Reuse, Reduce... The Recycling Revolution began in the 1970’s with the first recycling mill built in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. You might think that everyone liked the idea, but you would be wrong. There was much resistance to recycling because in most cases the cost was much greater than just dumping trash into a landfill. But in 1987, a barge full of garbage was hauled from New York to North Carolina where it was denied. It was then sent to Belize, and they turned it away. It then made the long journey back to New York, where it was finally incinerated. This highly publicized incident led to many heated discussions in the country and is often considered the start of recycling in America. However, recycling was not a new idea; civilizations have been recycling and reusing resources from the beginning of time. One example is when children outgrow their clothing yet it is still in good

for paper, plastic, aluminum, and glass right at curbside making it easy for your family to help minimize the amount of waste being dumped in landfills across the country. Here are just some great examples of recycling facts. Recycled aluminum cans can be on the grocery shelf in just 60 days! If all our newspapers were recycled, we could save 250,000,000 trees a year! The energy saved from recycling one bottle can run a light bulb for four hours! Oh, and by the way, the next time you eat that Hershey’s Kiss, don’t throw away that wrapper. You can recycle it! Not many people know that it is aluminum. There are tons of ways to get involved in recycling programs in your area and across the country. The local Lions Club recycles eyeglasses, which they distribute to those in need.

shape. Recycling might consist of passing it down to a younger sibling, fashioning it into another article of clothing, or if it is damaged, cutting it into smaller pieces and using as cleaning rags.

I know in our house old cell phones float around and just take up space. An organization called Earth 911 helps consumers find local recycling places for wireless phones. Programs such as “Donate A Phone Call To Protect” campaign benefits victims of domestic violence and is a great way to help people by recycling your phone. One site that does just that is www.wirelessfoundation.org. There are endless ways to green your world and all it takes is a little research on the web and a small or large amount of your time, depending on how involved you and your family want to become. One family took recycling to the max. They downsized their home and tried to reuse and recycle almost everything you could imagine. You can read about them by following Bea Johnson’s blog at zerowastehome.blogspot.com, and get some great ideas. But if you are like me and most busy families, you will find that maybe one or two recycling projects may be all that you can manage. That is OK too! Every little bit helps, and you have to start somewhere. Oh Hon, don’t forget to take those old clothes to Goodwill and even get a tax deduction!

April/May 2012

g n i Buy by Deanne P. Walther, DTR Organic means relating to or derived from living matter, signifying that no pesticides or chemicals are used. Organic products have become very popular in the last few years. People who are interested in these goods should research first before buying. There is no definitive research that proves organic foods are more nutritious, but they do have higher nutritional values, and some say they taste better. Organic usually costs more due to expensive farming practices; organic farmers don’t receive subsidiaries like conventional farmers do. The farming process is more labor and management intensive and usually smaller, so they don’t benefit from economies of scale. It takes three years to convert a regular farm into an organic one. It takes the first year to build up the fertility of the soil, so the produce cannot yet be labeled “organic.” Produce can’t yet be categorized “organic” in the second year but is considered “in conversion.” Finally, in the third year produce can be labeled “fully organic.” Foods should have the USDA organic standard stamp, which consists of: 1. 100% organic ingredients 2. At least 95% organic ingredients 3. Minimum 70% organic ingredients (strict restrictions on remaining 30%, no GMO’s).

April/May 2012

Other merchandise like cotton, wool, flax, etc. can also be bought as organic. Cotton is a heavily sprayed crop, and organic clothes are fairly inexpensive and contain no dyes or preservatives. The National Organic Program (NOP) is the standard to look for when buying these products. Three other primary organic certifications in the United States are: Organic Exchange 100 Standard (OES), Organic Exchange Blended Standard (OEB), and Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements guidelines (IFOAM) is a certification for international products and considered genuine. Important labels to avoid are GMO (genetically modified organisms) which means it is genetically altered material. The label rBGH (recombinant bovine growth hormone) means that this hormone has been used to force cows to artificially increase milk production by 10-15%. People should also be wary of certain words or phrases when buying organic. “Natural” is a vague term. It means that these foods do not contain additives or preservatives but may contain hormones, gmo’s, or may have been grown with pesticides. “Freerange” means the animals were able to graze, but be cautious because it might have been in a small area with many animals, which is not good. “Grass-fed” is good because these animals have eaten grass and hay and not harmful by-products intended to make them big quickly. “No hormones added” is definitely a good thing. BPA (bisphenol A) colorless chemical usually present in plastics and may cause cancer. Another way to buy organic would be to shop at farmers’ markets and food co-ops, and they are also a less expensive option. When purchasing seafood, be aware of where it came from and how it was caught. A good site for information on seafood, including apps for phones is: http:// www.montereybayaquarium. org/cr/cr_seafoodwatch/sfw_ recommendations.aspx?c=ln www.JerseyShoreFamily.com

Foods and items that should be bought organic are: • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Meat Strawberries Blueberries Grapes Apples Potatoes Cherries Celery Milk Spinach Bell peppers Cookware-NO nonstick Water bottles-No BPA Food storage containersNo BPA • All purpose home cleaners • Yard pesticides

One way to solve the problem is to recycle them. Because of my commitment to the environment, I have developed some craft ideas to turn those plastic-bag negatives into positives!
