Civility Includes Respect for the Environment

Environment, Respect

What do you think of when you think of civility?  Is it putting up with the in-laws when they drop in unannounced?  Maybe tolerating the sniffling of the co-worker in the cubicle beside you.  Or do you think of keeping your dog fenced in yard so he doesn’t do his business on someone else’s lawn.  Do you ever consider your respect for the environment as an act of civility?  Let’s not forget that we are only borrowing this space on earth while we are here.  Respecting the elements is important for everyone now and those to come.

Here are 5 Ways you can help the environment from fellow blogger, Kelly Allen.  Even if you already do these,  it’s always a good reminder to know that even the small things can add up to a big difference in the end.  Please read:

    Those are things my family adopted years ago. This year I have stopped using bottled water for the majority of our water intake. See the documentary “Tapped”. I am looking at switching to all phosphate free detergents, I have to find economical substitutions first. I hang my clothes from Spring to fall and rarely forget to take my reusable shopping bags to the store. Every little bit helps, I totally agree with you.
