Stay Green

Staying green isn't the easiest thing to do. Throw that bottle in the right place, make sure not to waste paper, no, you can't put that there, don't litter!, etc. It's easy to be careless - forgetting to be cautious with each item you use every day happens all the time! We slip up every now and then; so what? We're human! However, it's still important that we try our best to stay green. This blog is a reminder to all of you readers out there. An easy way to keep the concept of "green" in your mind is to remember the three R's: Recycle, Reuse, and Reduce. Not too hard, is it?

No, you don't have to get out there right this moment and dig through your neighbor's garbage bins and sort them out; but instead, try to fix your own attitude toward the world. Well, then again, if you're reading this, you probably already have a great outlook on being green, but the importance of attitude is still there. You can lay back and think, "Well, I guess there are others that can clean up this world.". But what if everyone thought that way? Then who would clean up our world? Everyone can help in their own way.

Carpooling or taking public transportation are easy ways to help lower the amount of pollution in our atmosphere. Planting trees, recycling, reducing, and reusing things are all simple things for us to do. You can even have fun doing it! On this website: , I found a multitude of arts and crafts you can do with scraps of paper and other tools around your house!

Have fun with this and remember to reduce, reuse, and recycle! Thank you for reading!
