May We All Know


We’ve been naughty. During the past several months, I’m certain we’ve discarded  enough plastic water bottles to build an additional room on our house. Barring the instability and lack of privacy, imagine how pretty it would look with the sun reflecting through the plastic walls. I don’t know who thought of bottling and selling water, but they’re earning a fortune and creating an environmental mess. Check out the creative clean-up:

This guy’s taking proverbial lemons and making lemonade, going above and beyond what you would think you could do with a water bottle. Still, despite the awesome ways  people can minimize the impact of plastic bottle on the environment, we need to reduce their usage. The end doesn’t always justify the means. What have you done that ended well, yet in hindsight, you know you shouldn’t have “gone there” in the first place?

I only drink water from fixed plumbing and usually out of a "glass" or straight from the fountain. The 3 R's of environmentalism have always been ordered in my mind as: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Reduce consumption comes first so that is always what I attempt first.

Good point. Bottled water is so convenient and has a special place in humanitarian efforts, but in daily living, reducing output is key. Thanks for your great advice, Emma.
