Family Environmental Advocacy History
Eric Talaska - From around 1995 to present - see EcoNeato.org, YouTube videos, publications, etc.
Erika Lina Erler-Talaska was a seamstress from all her adult life (to 2009); helped to keep clothing last longer
ELM made natural jewelry for a few years, and much earlier (1991), seasonal cards out of recycled paper. Eric has the original; will trade with ELM for something she has that Eric would want; then can have it and can see the interesting vintage letter written inside. Reason Eric secured it before parents passed: To protect from the nefarious people with access to it, loss or damage.
Leo Talaska wrote a letter to the editor, purchased many wildlife conservation stamps
Erler Family promoted bicycles and repaired them as well as sewing machines, etc. Lotte Erler was a seamstress, preventing the need to buy new clothes.
