Bloggers Unite - Blog Action Day

The day is nearly over for me but I wanted to post something as this is such an important issue.  I don’t do enough to help the environment. I know this. But this post is about what I DO do:

  • I think about the environment everyday whether it is recycling a bottle or turning off a light switch
  • We have just switched to using reusable bags for our weekly/fortnightly grocery shop. This has taken far too long but at last we won’t have dozens of plastic bags every time we shop.
  • The standby button has been banished – TVs are turned off when they aren’t being watched as are all other electronic equipment.
  • Clothes that don’t fit are either donated, recycled or if the fabric is lovely, put in my fabric box ready to be made into a gift r some other crafty thing.
  • We recycle everything we can: glass, plastic, paper/card, tins
  • We have a compost bin to recycle suitable food waste into compost to feed our garden
  • I think about how beautiful the world is

It’s not much but it’s a step in the right direction.

Hi Kate,

You pretend “I don’t do enough to help the environment.” but from what I read, I see a true environmental conscience.

As I said in my post every action counts.

You’re already in the right direction, congrats!

Honestly, it’s the little things that count.
