People SAY They're Concerned for the Earth, but...

But (and yet) they are unwilling to give up even the little conveniences that, given up, would at least help slow the trashing of the planet. You don't believe me? Ever ordered a cup of coffee with cream "on the side?" What does that cream come in? In tiny plastic cups that, after you've long ago excreted the remnants of the cream, will remain, remain, remain... That's merely one very tiny example.

Thank you. Yes, I think so. What's more is, I can see no upside to using these cups. Other suggestions have an upside and a downside. For instance, using glass jars instead of plastic bags can be not only incovenient, but impractical. And they can break.

There are many things that we could do that would give support to the environment. We can walk, we can get reusable water bottles and fill them at home to carry with us. Barring that, you can get a gallon jug of spring water for around 90 cents, have one item to recycle and fill a 20 oz. reusable bottle six times. That would be five less water bottles in the landfill. It would be an infinite number if you filled at home from the tap. Have you ever disassembled a coffee pod? The coffee recycles but nothing else. Simplify your cleaning routine. Recycle glass jars as food storage instead of the reusable and tossable Glad and Ziplock plastic boxes. Healthier for you too.
