There is a show on the Natgeo channel that I want to see. However we do not get that channel. The show is called the human footprint. So I went to their web page and was reading about the show, and that got me to thinking.
How will my one footprint affect the world. How will my daily routine affect my grand children?
Rusty and I differ on this subject. Rusty say's that one person can't change the world and I think one person can.
So since Nikki's birthday is on Earth Day and I was busy ...... here is my Earth day entry and how I am trying to change the world.
I reuse everything and Most people who know me know that to be true.
For Nikki's birthday
We reused milk jugs and made lemon aid in them.
The hotdog bun bags were brought home to be used for cat box cleaning.
Rusty brought home pallets for the bon fire. Usually they just throw them away.
My day to day seems so routine to me that I had to think about all I do to leave a good footprint. Here are just some of the things I do to help save the world and help save money.
All glass, can's and plastic bottles are recycled. I do not put them in our recycling can, I actually take them in for the money.
All plastic bottles are re used until there is nothing left of them.
I take my own green bags to the stores with me. Those plastic bags are made from oil, and they never break down.
Rusty and I have recycled toothbrushes. That is right. There is a company that make toothbrushes from recycled plastic and then if you send them back they will send you a new one for free!I will post the link at the end.
I save all boxes. Once I get a ton of them I post an add on craigs list for free moving boxes. I would rather see someone else use them before they are trashed.
I dig through our trash and I pull out the stuff that can be recycled. Rusty does not believe in recycling, so it is my job.
I buy pet food in bulk, so I reuse those bags as trash bags.
I have a few things that I still need to do. I need to figure out how to turn our sprinklers off. Our city is asking us to not water our lawns one day a week to help save water. I am thinking I can go two days a week.
So what does your human footprint look like? E mail me what you do and I will post all of them at once. Maybe together we can change the world.
