Planetary stewardship is a hands on endeavor. There is so much we can do, to do our part to help mitigate so much irresponsible abuse of the planet. We can do our part- different light bulbs, recycling, precycling & choosing things that are not using excessive packaging.
We ditched the gas guzzler & got into a "sipper".
Increased the insulation in our home.
Added a highly efficient inversion ductless heat pump to the house (much more energy efficient)
Replaced old windows w triple pane windows.
I realize in the big picture, the nuclear power plants in Japan- Fukishima Daichi continue to meltdown & spew nuclear waste directly into the ocean- and this disaster exceeds that of Chernobyl. Mega screw ups like the gulf Oil spill, and the highly questionable practice of Fracking to extract natural gas.
My individual efforts seem so minuscule, compared with all the other issues, but still maybe if enough caring people make efforts, we can help shore up the balance.
What have you done for your planet today?
