Okay the challenge is to think of ways to pay it forward for the environment. . . .
Check out Blue Frog Legs and leave a comment over there how you paid it forward this week.
I guess I'm not very environmentally friendly, because I am really not buying into to all the "going green" stuff and global warming junk. Sorry, people, I know it's not politically correct to feel this way, but unless the entire world gets on board with this idea, we are just raking leaves in a tornado, or shoveling snow in a blizzard. I'm just not so sure that the Earth needs us to save it. We can have the "greenest" country in the world but our pollution (or lack of pollution) still only accounts for less than 15% of the global pollution, so . . . yeah. I'm just sayin'. We can all be less wasteful and recycle and re-purpose things but honestly, are we really making a difference globally? I don't think so.
Of all the things that are out there right now, I think this is the best "re-purpose" idea, PLARN. I have seen churches make sleeping mats for homeless people from plarn, and others make tote bags or beach bags from this. I guess you could make anything out of it, really that was crocheted (or knitted). It reminds me of when my grandmother used to make braided rugs from bread wrappers.
So do you think your environmental practices are really making a difference? I would like to know, so leave me comments. Even if you disagree with me.
