The planet and those that occupy it cannot carry on in this way. At some point, we need to start giving back instead of taking, and at last some are beginning to see the light. The world needs our help, however little we can do, so we all need to get with the programme. Hopefully it is not already too late. We could start by using old newspapers as insulation for our walls.
With the emphasis today on greener living, each of us has to take responsibility for doing the best we can at recycling. Believe it or not a whole new industry is growing around this concept, and you might be surprised at just how much trash gets turned into treasure every day. Used vegetable oils get processed to produce bio-fuels, but that is just the tip of the iceberg.
