Wastefulness Does Violence to the Earth
When you see a pile of trash in a dumpster, think of it as a mound of valuable resources --not waste.
Trash contains bits of paper made by cutting down majestic forests, metal that was mined by destroying land, glass that is made using a lot of energy from coal burning power plants and plastic , which is made in ways that pollutes the water.
Most of what is put in a trash can should be put, instead, in a recycling bin.
Yet in my state, Alabama, only 1 in 100 people recycle. About 1% of waste is recycled. But in Seattle, Washington, 53.7 percent of the waste is recycled, saving valuable resources.
We need public service ads on television and in the newspaper to accomplish our goals.
We have a lot to lose.
Preserving Our Old-Growth Forests
When I ony have to urinate, I wipe myself clean using small three inch by five inch squares of terry cloth that I made from washclothes, rather than using toilet paper.
I then wash it clean using soap and rinse the soap out over the toilet.
