In celebration of earth day 2009!
The earth is ours to treasure to behold its beauty,
mother nature's beauty - we must as individuals do what we can
to help our earth survive. The little things can be a good place to start.
recycle, reuse, repurpose! It's all good!
Use compact fluorescent bulbs that preserve power and last more than 50-60 times longer than regular incandescent bulbs, roughly 6 years. They are more expensive, but worth it! They save a great deal of money on your energy bill. But be very careful when disposing of these as they do contain Mercury. Also on the positive side they save 2,000 times their own weight in greenhouse gases. (this is beyond my comprehension);)
Purchase reusable bags from your grocery store and use them
religiously so as not to use those nasty plastic bags that fill up our
land fills and do not disintegrate properly. I bought mine
from Wegmans and I use them for everything. I take them into other
stores (ha) and use them at the library, book store, at a local fruit stand. Their uses are endless.
Plant a tree! Plant a flower!
do all that you can!
walk vs. drive when you are able!
ride a bike!
ride a motorbike!
take the bus! - car pool!
I know there is a great deal of controversy
regarding global warming, etc but I for one
think it's quite obvious the major changes that
have occurred in the last several years with regard to our climate!
Join a group, make your voice heard
utilize this through the internet!
STOP GLOBAL WARMING!!!
Save the Polar Bears!
Save the Wolves!
Hug a tree!
Kiss the ground!
