Earth Day: Go Green!

Earth Day

Cats are good a recycling. Cardboard boxes, plastic milk rings, coffee stirrers, straws, etc, all become toys when humans are done using them. But humans are not so good about putting thing to better uses.

Remind your humans to recycle plastics and papers. Virtually every community allows for the recycling of these items. Make sure your humans take reusable cloth grocery bags day hunting with them, and if they must use plastic "dinosaur" bags, to return them to the recycling centers at the Supermarket Hunting Grounds when they are finished with them.

Want to do more? Get your humans to take the Green Initiative!

1. Generate compost. This is nature's way of recycling. Through basic and worm composting programs, children learn about ecology, biology and waste reduction.
2. Recycle everything that cannot be reused and purchase items that can be recycled. With fast shrinking landfill space and diminishing natural resources, recycling has never been more important. Recycling items such as paper, plastic, aluminum and ink cartridges reduces toxic greenhouse gas emissions and conserves energy. Manage E-waste by finding creative solutions to divert obsolete computer parts, cell phones and other such devices from the waste stream. Schools that recycle provide much-needed materials to manufacturers who produce recycled products.
3. Educate students, teachers and parents on environmentally-responsible behavior. When students, teachers and parents work together to make their schools environmentally friendly, they are more likely to take the same behaviors into their off campus lives. Our goal is to create environmentally-responsible school communities throughout the nation and across the globe.
4. Evaluate the environmental impact of every activity. Identify products and practices that could threaten the health of children and the world around them. Consider improving your home environment with activities such as eliminating excessive energy consumption; evaluating the toxicity of pesticides used in rooms and on grounds; improving outdoor air quality through increased carpooling efforts; and working to improve indoor air quality.
5. Nationalize the principles of responsible paper consumption. Consider purchasing post consumer recycled paper and office products. Use technology to communicate electronically as much as possible. Seek ways to provide Internet access to all families.

I am not supposed to eat the Daisies...

...or the butterfly either. However, if I bring her the head of the songbird that's been singing in the tree outside the bedroom window at 2:30 AM, she says she'll give me a WHOLE POUCH full of treats. I wonder if it's a tasty birdy...


TT said...

I likes watchin the birdies. I do's not go outside anymore tho. If you gets the birdy and make it go ded, that should be worth more than a pouch full of treats though!

Shadow says thank you for the post on House Panthers :)

If I want to eat the daisies I will.

Daisy said...

Please do not eat the Daisies!

Tybalt said...

You look very pretty with the daisies . . . I bet they'd taste pretty bad if you tried to eat them. You should probably stick to that birdie.

PB & J said...

We don't eat daisies, but we did catch a mole!

Thanks for the Green info Diamond, we'll do our best to get Mommy and Daddy going Green.

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Yes, please don't eat the Daisy's, I would miss her alot if you did.

My Mum is notorious for forgetting the cloth grocery bags either at home or in the car, sigh....I am still working on her.

Luna likes watching birds, too. Especially the big fat city pigeons we see now :)

Sunny's Mommy said...

That is a beautiful scrapbook page your beans made of you :-)

Did you get the song birdie? Was it tasty?
