SHARE YOUR WORLD AND BE KIND TO THE EARTH! 4-25-2022

It’s Monday and time for Melanie’s Share Your World.
This week her questions are really making us think.

QUESTIONS

In your opinion, how are we affecting our planet?
I think Man is killing it.

What solutions would you offer to stem the multiple problems we face vis a vis the destruction of our planet home?
This is a tough one as it’s a catch 22 situation. Some things are good, some things are bad, yet some have to live side by side. Practicality and common sense have gone out of the window and ‘solutions’ are put forward by The Powers That Be without seeing the bigger picture and costs involved.  Eventually only the rich will survive.

Do you think it’s already too late and we could just do exactly as we’re doing now and things would turn out the very same?
There is always hope, but I can’t see much improving in my lifetime.

Do you participate in things like “Arbor Day” (a U.S. Holiday dedicated to planting new trees) or Earth Day or Earth Month?
I have to say No.

Is any of it important in the ‘Big Picture’?
Everything has its place and role in the Big Picture. It’s just that everyone sees the picture totally differently and try to keep changing it to suit themselves.

GRATITUDE SECTION

What can you personally do to participate in the “Clean Earth” movement?
As an individual, not a lot. We try to do our bit with recycling, growing our own, and cutting down on our waste, but with so much red tape as to what you can dispose of and where, who is going to take the time to, for example, remove the label from a jar for one bin, the lid for another, then travel four miles to dispose of the jar itself.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    The cabin picture is sooo me.

  3. Thank you Di for Sharing Your World! You’ve touched on several great points, which others have shared as well. It seems that many of us see this issue the same way. I think it is truly awful that the powers that be can’t have more common sense and less preoccupation with money, but it is what it is. Making it as difficult as possible to recycle things (won’t take it with a label, but won’t take that one because it has a lid with it, and this third one we don’t take at all) just makes most people give up for fear of breaking the endless rules. I understand that there’s a process for sorting glass, cardboard, plastic, paper and so forth, and mixing and matching them doesn’t seem time effective, but that’s what we do over here. One big wheelie bin and you toss ‘recyclables’ of every kind into it. I read on another responder’s blog that a lot of it gets or did get shipped to China for disposal because their EPA standards are/were a lot lower than the U.S. Marilyn once spoke about recycling and her viewpoint was discouraging and eye opening. It’s an interesting question stream, and you did a fine job answering some tough questions! Have a great week and loves to Maya!

    I agree that often, the powers that be, make it difficult to recycle.

    I’m happy to say that recycling here is easier but the sorting of what they accept and what isn’t is confusing. I’m hoping that all the little things I do is helping a tiny bit…
