Earth Day 2012

Tomorrow is Earth Day. Let us help celebrate the event by living an eco-friendly lifestyle.
Just follow these 5 steps:
  1. UNPLUG appliances when not in use.
  2. WALK and BIKE. For trips less than 2 kilometers, walk to your destination. For longer distances, use your bike. It also saves you money.
  3. HIDE THE IGNITION KEYS of you car. Cars burn fuel, it contributes to pollution and global warming.
  4. DINE IN. Take out food is packaged in Styrofoam packages and plastics such as PE and PS which takes a long time to breakdown. Thrown out packaging will only clog our waterways. If you should buy take out, consider companies that package food in cartons or paper-based packaging. It has been a practice in the cities and towns around Laguna Lake to use earth-friendly packaging.
  5. GROW PLANTS. Trees, shrubs and other ornamental plants are pleasing to the eye and help take out carbon dioxide from the air. Grass on the lawn help absorbs the sun's rays thus helps lower ambient temperature. Crops such as pechay, okra, tomatoes, like my good friend Jhun "JAKBLAK" Mora is growing in his roof top garden, provides food for the family.
