Earth Day is everyday

Its Earth Day on 22nd April and we're late! With references to French Toast Girl, I proudly present you ways to save energy in and around your house and workplace.

1. Skip the drying cycle in the dishwasher and let the dishes air-dry.

2. Use lesser bags at the supermarket. We should all try to save the usage of plastic bags, especially NTUC which uses an indiscrimanate amount of plastic bags. Tell the cashier to use one bag instead of two! Thats the least we can do.

3. Plant something green. Plants reduce CO2 in the environment.

4. Go organic when you can. Follow the link on the left side of the blog to understand why.

5. Turn off the lights and other electronical items. I turn off everything, whenever we leave the room. It's a good habit to get into.

6. Teach your children well. Our kids are learning to respect the earth, share their resources, and learn more about the world around them.

7. Don't waste. Throw your bottles in the recycle bin or use less paper at the photocopier. Even wrongly photocopied paper can be reused as sketch sheets. Save our trees, there are not much left.

Respect the earth and save it before its too late. Money would be worth nothing when everything's gone.

Ikea in East Palo Alto, CA now sells their big plastic bags for 5 cents per bag.
Hehe.. I used to sneak a few extra Ikea plastic bags home whenever I shop at Ikea cos they are good strong bags.
Now they want people to either pay for the plastic bags, or buy their blue straw bags to contain your stuff.
