On 2 KASA This Morning

Today is National Recycling Day across the country and it’s a good time to remind everyone just how crucial it is that items are recycled and turned into something new, but saving the environment at the same time. That’s what’s happening right now in Albuquerque after the city’s Solid Waste Management Department issued large recycle barrels to homes. Official’s estimate that will eventually put a huge dent in the materials tossed away in landfills. David Romero spoke with a few folks around town and found out most are on the recycling bandwagon.

When the fall and winter get here, you might think bicycling season is over, but it’s not. Winter bicycling can actually be quite rewarding if you’re prepared. That is what Sport Systems owner Jerry Shere is here to talk with us about.

Yoga is known to be healing and restorative to the mind so it shouldn’t be surprising that it can also help you restore your body too. Daniel Faris here knows first-hand of the effects. He injured both of his knees playing basketball at UNM. But after numerous hot yoga classes at Blissful Spirits he was able to partially heal both knees! Here with me is Melenie Saint Georges, owner of Blissful Spirits and Daniel Faris.

Are you and the family interested in learning Spanish? There is a great way to do that while also learning about New Mexico through a clever Spanish learning board game. Here with us is Margarita Guarin-Fuentes, owner of Spanish ABQ Language Institute who has created this brilliant board game set in New Mexico!

If you’re in need of some new sports gear this weekend, do good by helping local homeless pets while buying it and head on over to sports systems. Here with me now is Vanessa Daniele, Marketing Director for Animal Humane New Mexico and Jerry Shere, general manager at Sport Systems.

This holiday season, why not provide some gifts and companionship for local seniors? Here with me now is Cindy Brown, social worker with Home Instead Senior Care and Debbie Oberer, director of care services with Home Instead Senior Care.

En La Cocina with San Pascual is an exciting new exhibit at the national Hispanic Cultural Center Art Museum. Where art meets lovin’ from the oven! Here with me now is Tey Marianna Nunn, director of museum and visual arts program at the National Hispanic Cultural Center
