Bonnie also had up some photographs that give a graphic example of what all of this plastic can end up doing to our animal life.
(this is a bird's carcass filled with plastics which were fed to it by its unknowing mother)
I don't show these things to make you depressed, or guilty, merely just to make you aware.
Hopefully the movement will take hold and people will start to think before they buy and put a little more thought into what they do with their plastics.
To support those who chose to participate this week the City put out an action plan so that each day you can focus reducing your footprint in a specific area.
The week is laid out like this
Friday: Green Home/Green Work
Saturday: Give Back
So on Sunday we made use of tofu containers, drink cups from Panera, and large yogurt containers to plant some seedlings.
Today I plan to eat by candlelight, or natural light if there is enough of it, and have a family game night instead of TV watching (hopefully my children won't revolt).
What sort of things might you do today to reduce your energy consumption? Do you have any good ideas for repurposing items?
