Stewardship of the Earth

Friday, August 08, 2008

Reduce, reuse, and recycle sounds great, but do we really think about (and apply) earth management into our daily lives? You might not litter, but how often do you drive your own vehicle rather than carpooling? What about buying "green" products instead of commercial items made with harmful chemicals? It is easy to disregard the dangers to the environment because there are no immediate consequences to our lives. However, think about how the earth will be in 50 years if everyone lived as you are today. Set a good example to your children of stewardship for the earth by recycling, eating fresh fruits and vegetables, and generally appreciating nature. Instead of going to Disney World, go on a camping trip. Turn off the TV and pick some flowers. This world is not ours alone. It is communally shared with all of the generations before us, and all of those to come after us.

    Absolutely! I'm lucky enough to work and associate with people who _do_ consider it important.

    all that and then some... work with your environment not against it... trying to have a "lawn" in a desert area is not working with your environment.... I'm in CA and everyone loves a green lawn.. we have a huge water shortage... duh? I'm frustrated that many people still don't recycle..... and they don't care... and don't take it seriously. My own family????? My parents are very good about it.. my younger sisters and their children do not care. America has lost its way. We need to get back to simplicity and frugality..... no more excess.
