Save The Earth Improve the Enviornment

I copied this from Annie's blog. (I hope that's okay)

On October 15th, bloggers around the web will unite to put a single important issue on everyone’s mind - the environment. Every blogger will post about the environment in their own way and relating to their own topic. Our aim is to get everyone talking towards a better future.

Blog Action Day is about MASS participation. That means we need you! Here are 3 ways to participate:

* Post on your blog relating to the environment on Blog Action Day
* Donate your day’s earnings to an environmental charity
* Promote Blog Action Day around the web

I suggest that you eat your dinner and then throw the scraps into a compost heap, preferably in your own yard to improve the earth and feed your plants.


  1. Hi Lynn,

    I LOVE your post, love it so much because I do exactly that. Once I put all my scraps in a bin but that proved problematic to my husband who thought it didn't get enough air. So now I throw them in an secluded area in my back yard under trees. And, oh, the lovely soil that is building up under there! It is a gift that will keep on giving and giving as I haul out compost for my flower gardens year after year.

    Kelly said you'd appreciate the fact that our photos didn't give away our identities. Yes, we talked about you yesterday. Did you ears burn? I heard that you are one of those people that has incredible energy and talent. I knew about the talent already.

  2. Good idea. Green is in. I heard that if you used one less napkin a day it would save a lot of paper usage a year. Or find another way to carry water with you then the plastic bottled water we buy and toss in land fills.

  3. Lynn I missed this date! But I have tagged you, sorry I hope you don't mind, if you want to , please go to my blog to read what to do with that:)
    Thanks for participating?

  4. Annie, no my ears were not burning but I suppose they should have been. ;-) I did "get" the reason for the backs of you and realized you must see eye to eye with me, as Kelly has no problem posting her photos of herself. (I'm glad she does as I love seeing her!)

    We'll keep growing beautiful gardens with our scraps!

    Cris: Those are great ideas. I solve one by not buying bottled water. The stuff from the tap is fine here. And napkins? Who uses those. My sleeve works just as well. ;-) I do try to encourage DH to take cloth bags to the grocery store to shop. And to turn off water while washing teeth and inbetween dish/pot washing. And to turn off lights (darn it!) when we leave rooms. One year I got my Electric bill down to almost nothing by pulling plugs of appliances, sitting in the dark a lot...things like that. LOL It worked. I do believe we saved gas too by wearing a lot of down gear in the house during winter months!

    Andrea: The date is not important!
    Something we must do daily! Save the planet for my grandchildren please! Thanks!

  5. Yes Lynn, just leaving things plugged in even tho off eats up electricity. Unplug that TV that isnt used much and unplug that toaster when you are done. You will be surprised at the cost of savings in doing things like that.
    I've been watching. "Living with Ed" on Monday nights here on HGTV. Lots of good GREEN ideas.

  6. cloth napkins I've used for yr. Course you do have to use water to wash them. No lawns. What a waste of water, and besides who wants to mow. Child of the 60's I've been very thrifty at times and prob. green without knowing it. But good to be ungreen once in awhile like leaving the plugs in maybe.

    Quilt= glorious


Thanks for leaving your comments as I love hearing from you. Your words of encouragement are why I continue to draw!
