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.

Protect Endangered Water Habitats from Oil Exploits Initiative

Australia puts oil profits above the EPBC Act by auctioning off protected water habitats for drilling.

Listen and Think With the Mind of Clarity and Reason

In 3 short years since this cautionary tale, we have abandoned the necessity to protect world water resources by aggressively pumping oil into water to search for more oil to pump out of it. Globally, we need to abandon fossil fuel use. Humanity understood that reality when we started pumping out fossil fuel. We told ourselves it was a stop gap measure and bought the lie. No longer is fossil fuel “cheap energy.” It is costly to our pocketbooks, ecological vitality, and planetary stability.

Many humans walk this Earth as if they are separate from it and that its functionality in no way effects their ability to live. This level of ignorance is dangerous and impedes on the rest of humanities continued survival. The waters, lands, plants, and animals are not owned by us. We are merely passers by.

What we do while we are here not only matters to the survival of the planet but to the human species, which is directly connected to this singular living, breathing planet in the Milky Way system, which we call Earth. We do not have to be the planet’s black plague. We have been given the choice. What a wonderful opportunity. What a wonderful gift. Re-prioritize what it means to live and act accordingly.

Petitions For An Urgent Call To Action:
The number of petitions to stop Australia from destroying the last safe haven for whales from oil drilling companies are dangerously low. Without a strong, constant voice, rest assured Australia will continue to pillage resources for profit. Where are the voices of all the protect whales programs? Why are they quiet?

Stop the Invasion on Farmland Initiative

Congress allows Canada to seize farmlands without valid permits or minimum safety standards to make way for the Keystone Pipeline.

Main Article: Farmers Sued by TransCanada

It’s Time to Stand:

On February 27, 2012 Obama caved to corporate and political pressure and invited TransCanada to reapply for “permits” to construct this abomination.

The lack of moral center and utter disregard for the welfare of animals, people, and the planet displayed in this overtly corrupt line of thinking has me contemplating the meaning of Daniel Webster’s words. Of this, the United States of America, he stated, “There is no nation on earth powerful enough to accomplish our overthrow. Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter: from the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence. I must confess that I do apprehend some danger. I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men and become the instruments of their own undoing.”

The vacuous weight given to Benjamin Franklin’s words by “professional politicians” who do not see the world beyond their own pocketbook. “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

The echo of Samuel Adams address to the Philadelphia State House whips through the night air. “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

The Founding Fathers of the United States haunt every inch of the nation bellowing their profound shame at how quickly corruption has killed one of the most daring achievements of man – the quest for freedom from tyranny and oppression. A land based on the voices of the people not on governmental edicts.

It’s Time to Think:

It’s Time to ACT:

Contact Elected Officials Right Now!

Contact Information for the White House

Contact Congress Right Now!

Sign petitions. If you are not able to sign petitions and live outside the United States then call and email the White House. If you have already signed petitions then pass them along to everyone you know and start another petition. If you are a citizen of the United States it’s time to jam up phone lines and email in-boxes of local and federal representatives in addition to the White House.

Donation Sites To Help Fund Calls To Action:
This season please consider donating to support animal organizations that continue to give the animal kingdom a voice. Many of these organizations are run by volunteers or underpaid staff that chooses humanity over a paycheck. Without compassionate people working these issues, continued animal vitality would be tipped in a devastating direction. Show your loved ones what really matters and make a gift donation in their names. Your family, friends, and the environment in which you live will appreciate it. Your gift will continue to be meaningful long after other gifts are tucked away.
