Better World!

All right people! We have to get serious now! If you and I don’t take action, soon we will be buried under our own garbage!

Every time you go grocery shopping, buy coffee, buy fast food or even bottled water, you need to remember:

Plastic bags, foam cups, plastic bottles and glass are not bio-degradable”, which means no matter how many years they stay in a landfill, will not turn into soil and will slowly come back to haunt us (i.e. bite us in the ass).

Just try to measure how much un-bio-degradable garbage each one of us produces on a daily basis and you will understand the magnitude of the disaster.

I have some tips:

1- try to carry your coffee mug with you or buy coffee in paper cups, only.
2- try to use cotton shopping bags or recycle your plastic one and do not dispose of them in your garbage can.
3- use recyclable containers for food, if possible.
4- collect all plastic and glass items, wash properly and dispose of them in a recycling bin.
5- never, ever throw out aluminum pop cans. Each is worth almost 50 cents!
6- do not buy bottled water! Municipal drinking water is clean and good for your immune system and you pay for it with your taxes!
7- try to use silver (metal) cutlery or recycle your plastic ones.

Paper is easily recycled. In fact more than 50% of paper and cardboard is reused. Also, paper is degradable if disposed of, into the environment. But the same principles do not apply to plastic, foam and glass!

Also, if you don't want to contaminate our water with medication, do not flush them down the toilet. This is the water that you shower with and use for cooking!

On a totally different note, please do remember that white bread and pop drinks consist of more than 90% sugar. Potato chips, fries and donuts are just fat, salt and starch. Unprocessed foods such as eggs, milk, meat, cooked vegetables and raw fruits only make up a balanced diet.

I wish we could change ourselves overnight!

As for the recycling, my flatmate turned out to be very responsible. She does all that (well for me too), as religiously as you said, if not more extensively. I suppose she won't read this, but thank you Claire :)

Hi Sky,

Long time no see! Why is that some of your post accept comment and some don't? is it something you choose or is it just happening by itself? Anyhow, I agree with you on recycling but "not religiously". If we take anything too seriously, we often tend to sacrifice other "more important things" since, unfortunately our time, memory and energy are limmited.

So, "white bread and pop drinks consist of more than 90% sugar"? Interesting! Is that why you are a sweetheart? :) :)
