The three green 'Rs' explained.

We all know what they are: Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. But we often donít understand the good it can do when we all make an effort to follow them. If you and your family reduce your impact, reuse items, and recycle materials properly, itís guaranteed to make a difference. Itís also one of the easiest ways to live a greener lifestyle.
Sunday, November 15th is America Recycles Day, a nationwide recycling event coordinated by EarthShare member Keep America Beautiful. Learn more about why the three 'Rs' should be a part of our daily lives, and use our links to connect with initiatives and resources in your community!

I can't say I recycle regularly, but I do try to reuse many things, and I am a bit of a pack rat and keep stuff for use later.

Growing up on the islands necessity demanded that we practice the three R's ... it was not labelled green then ... it was living! That did not change for my family when we moved to North America but reinforced that value ... we found the level of consumerism quite distasteful and gluttonous actually ... and it is how I raised my kids dispite the trend influence all around us ... they know how well it affects their ability to grow and keep wealth.

So, CE, where were you when CC was being overhauled? I went on Facebook but it was not the same as CC.

Sandy ... funny you should ask ... was thinking similar ... am on FB a lot as it is where I stay connected with family throughout the diaspora, especially the young ones ... we have two family sites there, Mom and dad's side of the family ... on FB I've reconnected with tons of friends from my past, even elementary school ... that is cool ...  and I caught up on my reading ... I play games too on line  ... CC is for my virtual friends ... actually missed CC ... its different.
