be recycled

I think if grocery stores discontinued use of plastic bags, not only would it dramatically reduce plastic use in the US, also it would be a leading example of the changes we can make to positively change our Earth. Promoting the use of reusable bags (even more awesome: ones that have been made with recycled materials) it could very possibly lead to others taking additional eco-friendly actions to benefit their environment.

Many countries in Europe put use to this idea ages ago. While this has certainly helped the environment, it isn’t going to change it without the help of the rest of the world. The damage we have already done to our planet is irreversible. The only thing we can do now is save it from any future damage.

have you ever thought about Talon? i think you two would be cute !!

“A Noxian and an assassin who values self preservation over anything else. Why would I want anything to do with that… rat? He goes against everything I stand for. Where in the world would you get such an idea?”

One extremely simple way to not only be environmentally conscious, but to save money, is to not just turn off your lights, and other electronics when not in use but actually unplug them altogether.

Did you know that your phone charger pulls wattage even when your phone is not plugged in? Now granted it’s not much (usually a tad less than a quarter of the wattage that would be used when your phone is plugged in.) But imagine that multiplied by hundreds of millions of people.

Now consider that the majority of electricity in the U.S. is still derived from coal and natural gas, which are fossil fuels. 

Now think of all of the other things in your home you leave plugged in when not in use.. Your TVs, your microwave, your lamps, your computer, your fans, etc.. and multiply that by hundreds of millions of people too!

Maybe you can now see how significant an act it could be to unplug your electronics when not in use. Not only is it great for the environment, its great for your wallet! One great way of doing this is having your things plugged into surge protectors. This allows for you to have multiple things plugged into one source, and only unplug one thing when you’re done! Share this, tell a friend. Let’s save money and the planet together!

“Ah, the cold winter air. How I missed it,” Jason spoke wryly as the frigid breeze prickled the uncovered parts of his skin. He took a sip of the warm coffee in his hand before he made a beeline towards the first person in his line of sight, hoping that they’d be helpful. “I’m looking for a thrift shop. Supposedly, there is one around here. Got any idea where it is?”

Kit Kats are made of Kit Kats. The manufacturers leave no Kit Kat uneaten, so every reject is mashed into a paste that’s used to fill the wafers. Because every imperfect Kit Kat was already filled with other imperfect Kit Kats, and some of the Kit Kats they’ll fill will also be rejected, every time you eat a Kit Kat, you’re basically eating layers of Kit Kats within Kit Kats within Kit Kats.

Artist Turns Trash Into Animals To Remind Us About Pollution

To spread his message about endless waste production, Portuguese street artist Bordalo II (Artur Bordalo) creates stunning animal sculptures. However, unlike most artists, Bordalo doesn’t buy his material - he scavenges it. He seeks to portray nature (animals) with the materials that threaten it.

Bored Panda has already written about Bordalo here and here but it’s clear that the artist isn’t going to stop his work anytime soon. While he started working in Portugal, now he is going global. His latest journeys feature stops in Estonia and the USA. He’s bold, he’s determined, and he’s consistent - let’s hope that Bordalo will stay this way and continue his fight.
