I’m late. I know. Sorry. It’s been crazy world for me for the last week and I know I’m late today. I apologize as well to my blog mates for not being around but some of these days it’s been a miracle that I could put one foot in front of the other. My dad is home now and recovering well. Thanks for all the prayers and good wishes.
This week is Earth week and I’m proud to say that we’ve been an eco conscious family for quite a long time. In fact, my younger son, when he was about six, decided that his brother’s nickname should be eco-boy since the older one was always advising on reducing, reusing and recycling. We had the various bins on the back porch way before our county did any recycling and it’s a way of life for us. Of course, this same son called his dad Sir Camps-a-lot at that same age.
My son and husband as well as my dad like to recycle old autos as well. I call it the cha-ching hobby since it’s pretty expensive to keep those old things running and to buy parts all the time. I actually think they just like to get packages in the mail. We always recycle or reuse the boxes all those parts come in.
We donate gently used clothes and other items. My younger son did his community service that the high schools require at a resale shop and to this day, my mom volunteers there, too.
What do you do to play your small part?
