World Earth Day!

Hopefully people around the world will realise that its up to humans to save Earth from a terrible future.

We've started discussions on "zero pollution", but lets start at the most basic level; ourselves. We can help by reducing our energy and water usage at home and at work. Every little action helps.. turning off the lights when you don't need them, using energy saving appliances and devices, shutting off the DSL modem when not in use, use a pail when washing that car, etc etc.

There are alot more things that we ourselves can do. CEans, any tips on how to save energy and water usage?

Am posting this 5 mins before 12am of 23rd April. Just in time 😉

Yes, World Earth day should be a lifelong practise. All it takes is the gentle movement of one pebble to become a landslide. Turn off that water while brushing your teeth or shaving. Take a "military" shower (turn off the water while lathering), install low flow shower heads, faucets. Use your own bag when shopping, reduce air conditioning & heating usage. Plant trees or volunteer for litter pick up. Wow the list could go on & on. Start small & build upon your foundation, soon you'll find a mansion of joy. Recycle/reuse as much as possible. Support the use of environment friendly goods & services.
