When The Music's Over

img_0433.jpg

Here are my favorite lyrics from my favorite Doors’ song:

What have they done to the earth?
What have they done to our fair sister?
Ravaged and plundered and ripped her and bit her
Stuck her with knives in the side of the dawn
And tied her with fences and dragged her down.

When I hear these lyrics, I think of construction sites in formerly undeveloped countrysides and fires in California.

A PlanetTrash Hero

Here’s an interview with a remarkable individual who is walking across the state of Arkansas. She and her friends and sponsors are picking up litter and other trash as they go. She is a real PlanetTrash hero. Here is a link to her blog about the trip. She puts me to shame. I only complain about the litter and don’t litter myself.

I Like the Idea But….

I like this idea from a student, who wrote this letter to the Modesto Bee. I tried picking up some plastic water bottles on the pavement at the local recycling center this week, and my hand got oily. I’m a germaphobe. What can I do to solve this problem?

Throw away the litter you see

I am so sick of walking to school and having trash all over — cigarettes and bits and pieces of trash. We should stop and clean it up. This should be a better town and we can do it if we help. Who wants to live in a pig sty?

It’s killing the planet. People need to get their acts together. Next time you see trash, pick it up and throw it responsibly in a trash can.

No Bones about Plastic

This article from the Washington Post tells ways to keep your pets green. While the article is very good, encouraging shopping at Petco for green pet needs is not a good suggestion, as that place sells live animals, often exotics. Try a locally owned store, who doesn’t trade in live animals. We’re lucky in the Nashville area to have Nashville Pet Products.

One of the ways mentioned in the article to stay green is to keep cats indoors. I’m sorry that we have to keep our cats outdoors, but we have an aged cocketiel, who is king of the house. Plus I am allergic to cats. The only reason we own cats is because someone else dumped them. I hate the fact that my cats occasionally kill birds, which is the main reason I never had a cat as a pet. I just couldn’t turn down their sad little faces.

A Green Pope

images.jpg

Pope Benedict XVI is encouraging young Catholics to go green.

Andrea Ringressi, 29, and his girlfriend of three years, Marta Iuzzolini, 27, said they appreciated the pope’s green message, particularly during an event that was producing small mountains of plastic water bottles and other refuse.

“It’s a good idea here, because there’s so much garbage!” Iuzzolini said as she surveyed the grounds, which by the end of the weekend had turned into a very un-ecological field of plastic tarps and garbage bags.

Tree People

We watched the Tennessee/California football game last night, and loved the Tree People. The earth needs more tree people.
