I have always been aware of waste even before climate change became a news item. I grew up in a family who were depression 2ndWW children and we were taught to turn off lights and not waste anything. More so now, to see people waste resources and have little care for the environment, I find upsetting - I wonder what they are thinking when they throw drink bottles out the car window or rubbish on the ground. These are learned behaviours and we need to teach our children to respect the planet and others human animal and plant life living on it as it is our home and source of life. I don't buy drinks in bottles, I preference food not packagaed such as vegetables and take my own bags and boxes to put them in. I hope we get more of being able to take our own containers to buy meat and other products. I buy staples like flour etc from our food co op and am frugal using electricity with solar power and hot water and use the power I generate by using washing mahine dishwasher during the middle of the day when I am using my own power.
