That’s right it hippy time. I just wanted to jump up on my soap box to save my world. I am very selfish that way. Lots of people jump on their soap box to save the earth. Not me, I only care about myself when it comes to the environment. I don’t proclaim to be a militant hippy or a super militant vegan that wants to shove my beliefs down your throat. I just like to share what works for me. Those things that work for me in the world of “Life as I Live It” just might work for you.
Sometimes you need to be told what you don’t know or should I say is I need to be told what I don’t know. One great way to save trash from the landfill is to simply use mugs. We humans drink a tremendous amount of warm beverages daily. Why not have a mug and reuse it. I know there are several coffee chains and some restaurants that will allow you to bring your own cups or mugs in to be filled.
In my office, I made the offer to wash mugs daily if everyone agreed to not use temporary ones. You know the guys were down with that one. I actually don’t mind washing the dishes. It is mindless work, thus therapeutic. Some may not see it that way, hence my offer to lend a helping hand.
No additional paper, plastic or foam in the landfill. I have done my part. I also think I have inadvertently save a little piece of the earth with my selfish ways. That is allllll right. I can get off soap box now. I promised myself to keep it short and sweet like myself. Except I am not short at all. Although I am not that tall either. I will leave that for another time.
I am stepping slowly off the box.
I like that “Soap Box Sunday.” 🙂 Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
