Aspiring for harmony with our global environment
Recycle everything you can , paper, plastic, glass, newspapers, and more.Restore.
Sometimes restoration is really simple, for example sewing on a few missing buttons, raising or lowering a hemline. It can also be quite complex, particularly in an era and economy of planned obsolescence. But it can be done! The old formica table that's been in your home can be cleaned and add a touch of panache to your family room. The leaky soup pot makes a great home for your house plants with a saucer under it. Buy used items and think creatively!Reconsider.
Do you really need that new __________ (insert item you're considering buying)? Is the old one still serviceable? Will your life be measurably changed without it? Most westerners are entirely too enamored by the things we own. Our desire to acquire often leads to stress, fear (of loss), and greed. Make do or do without - it helps everyone.Reduce.
Buy products without unnecessary packaging. Choose loose vegetables, bulk foods, and items from bins rather than those sealed in plastic. Recognize and support store managers when they stock products with little or no packaging. Consider large or economy-sized items for products that are used frequently (ex. laundry soap & pet foods). Check your tires once a month, since properly inflating your tires improves gas mileage.Reuse.
Use up your existing stock of paper or foam plates, cups, napkins, and tableware at picnics this summer, and don't buy any more. Whether for home or office, use sturdy cups, dishes, and utensils. Use rechargeable batteries. Use old t-shirts for dusting, sponges for cleaning, and cloth towels for sopping up spills instead of paper towels, use-&-toss dusting cloths, and the like.Renewable.

Think about what's in the items you buy - what percentage is natural material that will eventually return to the earth? The higher the natural content, the better. Eliminate your use of manmade materials wherever possible.
