Clean Air Controversy

IMG_8752.JPG

Humans are capable of turning anything into a controversy.

I don’t understand why clean air is a controversial topic.  I think we can all agree that breathing fresh air is preferable to breathing smog.

However, that doesn’t seem to be the case.  We spend countless hours arguing over environmental issues.  I find this concept hard to comprehend.

 

 

Dumpster Diving

Do you ever wonder what stores like Staples or Best Buy throw into the trash?  I do, which is why I decided to go dumpster diving.  I found all sorts of interesting things, but most of the items were not worth the effort to salvage.

However, I did find an “EXIT” sign.  The outer frame was in great condition, but the red letters were cracked.  I took the frame home, cleaned it, removed the broken letters, and replaced them with red construction paper.  Then I hung it up over my garage door.

I think it looks pretty cool.

Finding Common Ground on Earth Day

It seems our culture can turn anything into an argument, fight, or protest.  Global warming, climate change, and recycling are polarizing issues.

Maybe we can find some common ground.  Maybe we can learn to compromise for our own personal benefit.  Maybe we can agree, breathing in fresh air feels better than breathing in smog.  Maybe we can all learn to enjoy streets and parks that are not covered in trash or litter.

I think we should be able to work together and clean our environment, regardless of our religious beliefs and political ideations.  Having a clean place to live benefits all of us, so let’s stop fighting and start cleaning.

Go Green – Book Review

14022094_1278737605512300_4802847953335549283_n

Go Green (How to Build an Earth-Friendly Community) offers suggestions for living sustainable and creating a smaller carbon footprint.  The book offers tips on environmentally friendly building supplies, transpiration , water conservation, and developing community programs.

I learned several new things while reading this book; however, the writing style is a bit dry.  I thought the book was helpful overall and would recommend it.

I give the book a B+
