Let’s continue to reduce (waste), reuse and recycle (whatever we can) and restore this beautiful planet. After all we only have one of its kind!
As an artist I reuse my old or not-so-great artwork by cutting them out and saving them to embellish future scrapbooks or greeting cards! I reuse pickle jars to hold my brushes or water. I also save my old paintbrushes for painting with masking fluid or stirring paint. And I’m desperately seeking a way to create new paper from the discarded pile…
Around the time pandemic started, I turned vegetarian. I bought some sturdy 100% cotton bags to buy grocery. I started cooking more and buying and consuming less processed food. I realized this in itself led to less paper and plastic waste. Using cloth over paper, reusables over disposables was a major turning point!
I’m still working towards living as green as possible. It’s a journey and the goal is to reduce the burden on the planet as much as possible. What I’ve learned is it’s ok to have an occasional slip up (sometimes I forget my cotton bag or have run out of them and sometimes it’s not possible to recycle). It’s the intention and the awareness that matters and that is enough to save our planet.
Have a beautiful day🤗💕🌱🌸🌈🌎
