How to Reduce Waste



There are a wide range of conservation efforts that can help reduce buildup to protect water resources and aquatic life.

•Plastic grocery bags are used in several countries. This is an unnecessary and costly practice. Instead, use tote bags. They have a multitude of functions and are environmentally friendly.
•Purchase beverages in glass bottles over plastic. Glass is a reusable resource, reducing waste. Drink water from tap and not plastic bottle. Water in plastic bottles is bad for your health! How Bottled Water Harms
•Use recycle bins. There are many areas that do not provide this service. This is a wonderful business industry for productive growth in small communities! For those interested Start a Recycle Center
•Start a community garden and compost site.
•Donate to charity stores rather than throw out items.
•Use technology recycling centers to reduce ewaste. For those interested in this growth industry read through UNESCO’s Handbook Create a Successful Technology Recycling Center.

Personal Note From Editor
In researching responsible Green business models that are economically sensible while remaining environmentally friendly and support wildlife habitat preservation, I thought, “I’m never going to find such a beast.” To my utter surprise and elation, I discovered Dean’s Beans. Bar none, I have never been so impressed with the business model of a company. Another happy shocker was its affordability!

When I found out about Dean’s Beans, I started researching other organic coffee manufacturers and was depressed by the prices discovered. They made expensive coffeehouses look cheap.

At the conclusion of my organic coffee research, I ordered the sample kit from Dean’s Beans to find out if there were differences in the quality of taste and smell. I was unprepared for the vast differences between Dean’s Beans and store bought coffee. The aromatic brew permeated the house, providing an external energy boost of its own and the various flavors started my day with feelings of being on vacation. My energy level went up, but I did not feel hyperactive and my skin felt moist and hydrated. It is odd enough that coffee would make skin feel hydrated, but it is more amazing that it had that effect in a desert climate.

After research and product testing, Dean’s Beans is the only coffee I purchase for home and office use. I encourage all to try this amazing product and see the differences for yourself. Be sure to let me know your thoughts.

Visit: Dean’s Beans.

Observe Earth Hour in your date and time zone on 31 March from 830PM to 930PM.

The goal is to have everybody shut off (preferably) all of your power for one hour. In 2011, Hong Kong went dark for an hour – truly impressive.

I made a list of how I am going to observe Earth Hour. Here’s what I’ll be doing. I hope you’ll join me.

I’m killing all of the power to the house. I happen to make candles so I will have several burning in key areas for ease of navigation.

I saved a holiday tree from a landfill and have had it drying outside. I plan to burn the wood, which will serve two functions.

First, it will provide outside light for stargazing. Second, it will serve as a heat source for an evening dinner of vegetable filled Quesadillas and hot tea.

While planning for evening activities I was horrified to discover I will have to forgo music for the hour, as I do not have an instrument. Instead, it will be lively conversation and Texas Holdem by the fire pit or candlelight.

Be sure and share your Earth Hour plans with me. I’m always looking for creative ideas! Get everybody you know involved – it could turn out to be one creative party!
