Plastic – What can we do

Using plastic water bottles and our need for plastic is the first issue we’ll address here. WATER is LIFE and we are the stewards for this Earth and her inhabitants.

throw-away-trashFirst, thank you for wanting to be a part of the solution to this urgent situation with WATER and POLLUTION!  Many folks still use a plastic water bottle or straws or plasticware … only ONCE and then throw it away! It feels like it must be time to WAKE UP … look around our World and see what’s happening. There are still many unaware and unconscious people on this planet …  we just need to look around  at how the oceans are suffocating and life is dying, from our trash and our plastic bottles and waste! Please help with the “little things” too; by our example of  paying attention ourselves, then teaching our children to be respectful: to nature, each other and all living creatures. Being kind to each other is also a priority!  We offer suggestions and we’re sharing about HOW to “Make a Difference”.  It takes each one of us to make a change, and together we can!
