Not sure about you, But I’m getting tired of seeing all the ad’s and shows about going green like this article. But yeah. If we knew we were killing the planet back in the 196o-7o’s why wasn’t it more force on the governments to make more reusable things back then instead 4o/5o years later. I think its by 2o12, that every company must be eco friendly..
I’m not a tree hugging, hippie, green lover, BUT I do try and cut down my waste, recycle what I can (errr what the city allows us to recycle) and return my pop cans/beer bottles to the bottle depot at least every two months as I get a bigger pay out. I wash most of my clothes in cold water, I purchase what I can thats been reused into something new. Half my closet has clothes that are made from bamboo. I have my own veggie garden, if I could grow pineapples and avocados in the west coast of Canada I’d be happy|rich lol. I try and use non perfume cleaners .. but for the most part simple vinger and water work wonders. I never water my grass, the rain does that for me.
I am guilty of not car pooling (no one lives near me and I got weird hours and the bus system here sucks), driven places when I could have easily have walked (but then again walking home with bags of food and or cat litter isn’t as easy as one hoped). I’ve done it before and I’d do it again if I had walk 2 and a half hours to work and back again (5 hours a day) god I’d be fit.
Earth Hour was here and left as quickly as it came for another year. Right around all the talks about the event, I started surfing around looking to see where about in my corner of the province would we recycle all the plastics 1-7 nope just 1,2,3 and 5 so I guess I have to make more homemade ketchup until my city gets their butts in gear and takes 7′s as I miss my Heniz ketchup.
So with all of this and Earth Day coming on the 22nd of this month.. I thought why not send a letter off to the mayor of my city and ask why we aren’t taking all the 7 plastics at the recycling depot. I wrote it up yesterday and hopefully I hear back soon as it would be interesting to find out.
On a side note….. Has anyone had any luck purchasing or selling anything off craig’s list? I’m thinking about selling some furniture.
