SEPTEMBER 6 (WEDNESDAY)
TINY CHANGES - HANDKERCHEIFSGood day my dears.
How are you going with todays Eco-Kindnesses?
Simple ideas are the key to the Tiny changes that make the world of difference.
I first heard this joke as "How do you make a Hankie dance?" Back when I first saw the movie Bicentenial man with Robin Williams. Such a powerful movie. But it turns out not too many people know about Handkercheifs (Hankies) any more. THey are a little old fashioned in some areas.
What does this joke have to do with Sustainable September you might ask? WEll a snot load actually (excuse the pun).
Sustainable September Day Six - Handkercheifs.
Buy or make your own handkercheifs (Hankies) and have some on hand when you need to blow your nose.
"Hankies are greener than tissues (pardon the pun), that is if they actually get taken out of the sock drawer. To really minimise your nose-blowing impact purchase organic cotton hankies or, if you can find them, buy hemp, which has a 50 per cent lower eco-footprint.
This idea is of Handkercheifs is all about REDUCE... tissues can't be recycled so there is no RECYCLE option. At least with Handkercheifs (Hankies) you can REUSE... an option not available with Tissues.
See you all tomorrow.
