Saving the planet in my own little way!
I have read this report from a friend’s Facebook wall last time.
The different nations should really do something to educate their people about the drastic change of the globe’s climate before it’s too late. The people on the other hand, need to take this seriously to avoid suffering from the consequences Global Warming can bring.
Being a mom to a 3 years old boy, I don’t want him to be the one to suffer in the near future if the Global Warming will not be stopped. That is why I decided to change some old habits and do something to help our planet survive.
Last year, I started putting plants in pots on our front house. We can now at least breath fresher air compared before, and I am planning to add some more plants.
Also, every time I went to the wet market I always bring my pink re-usable plastic bag.
This way, on my own little way, I can help plastic waste decrease. I also love the feeling that other shoppers and store owners appreciate you for not using plastic bags. I already gave my mom who lives in Muntinlupa her own re-usable bag and she said that she is also very happy on how people reacts when she uses it. Good news is that she is already used to bringing her own bag before the Muntinlupa Government announced that effective this month they will already ban the use of plastic bags and Styrofoams.

When shopping at the malls or even in Divisoria, I use my eco bag or any big foldable bag where I can put everything I shop directly in the bag.
I also have tips for new moms out there, it is best to use cloth diapers for your babies. If you want to save more moolah then cloth diapers are a lot better than disposable diapers available in the market. One cloth diaper can be used from birth till he is about to be potty trained. You can check out cloth diapers like Fuzzi Bunz. You can check it out at Hobbes & Landes: Bonifacio High Street, Greenbelt 5, Rockwell Power Plant, Greenhills Promenade. You can also check my previous post about cloth diapers here.
And my latest discovery (well not that latest, but it’s just now that I take it seriously) is to lessen the paper we use and even receive. Papers come from trees, and because consumers has demand for it, of course, producers manufacture it. Recently, I enrolled my credit card bills in an online statement so that I will not received my statement using paper anymore.
How about you, what is your contribution to protect mother earth?
what ever happens in life we should always remember to live life to the fullest
