If you did not buy gas on July 27, thank you.

Hey lots of positive vibes to everyone who did not buy gas on July 27.  If you would like to connect with other like minded folks, please post a link to your blogcasa.  Waves to Leslie & Xine for their already known ‘company’.  Not buying gas on one day is not a huge step–but it is a step towards the potential unity we possess.

Other small things we can each do every day to save Earth–and ourselves:

Purchase locally grown food. Real food ‘rots’ — so avoid processed faux food products. Do you really want to eat something composed of ‘things’ you can’t even pronounce the names of?

Use public transportation, carpool, ride bikes, walk whenever possible.

Reduce the cleaning products you use–seriously, read the labels on the products you’re using and consider ‘safer’ alternatives.  Baking soda, vinegar and elbow grease can do ALOT.

Reuse, reduce & recylce as much as possible instead of adding to the floating trash heaps in the ocean.

There are MANY of us. If we all start making changes in our daily lives NOW it adds up. Make every day Earth day with your own mindfulness.

    check out this wonderful youtube clip Eva. You might want to share it too 🙂

    They are such simple things that you are talking about, but for each of us it is in the simple everyday habits in our lives that we can really make a difference. I am certainly working on mine!

      Kirstyfliesfree, thanks for the link to the video.
      Simple things do make a difference once we become aware of what we’re doing. Just reducing the amount of plastic bags we ‘get’ everywhere by bringing our own bags cuts the use of petroleum products in those indestructible plastic bags. So much change is possible just by realizing what the heck we’re buying, where, why, and what it really is. I did food foraging today and never entered the ‘center’ aisles where all the processed heavily over packaged items were waiting. We can all make a difference faster than any one can make it ‘for’ us. And ‘they’ sure aren’t showing any signs of being willing to what we can all together.

      Great video. Only I think it can be done in 1 year–all it requires is willpower–and perhaps a realization that this is what needs to happen in order for US to surivive as a species on Earth.

    Can you imagine the changes that would take place if everyone did the above. I’ll bet in a year, we’d become so used to it that we would not remember the change. I’m going to do the cleaning thing. There is no reason To buy many of those. The others do the job just fine. I actually like my recycling routine. Reduces the garbage so much!

      Yes, Leslie, I CAN imagine all the changes that would take place person by person in a year. It’s not impossible. It just requires DESIRE. Oh just doing the elimination of cleaning products is so huge. Not only will you save a ton of MONEY by changing to non-toxic cleaning materials–you won’t be breathing in the toxins or having them on your skin or in your home. Recycling is huge. And glass jars—I have found so many uses for empty glass jars for replacing plastic storage containers that it’s rather comic. Thank you so much, Leslie, for all your support!

    I did not buy gas today. I took the bus and walked wherever I had to go.

      Grins. Thank you for participating, Carol. I hope you had a cooler time of it than we did -are–have/having in the broiling pan of the midwest. Orange Ozone Alert today in the KCMO metro–don’t drive if you dont’ have to, no mowing, keeping the young, old and ill out of the bad air, etc…Yeah. A change is coming…
