So how did your walk to work go? Did you get wet? Did you share an umbrella with someone? Did the sun shine?
I hope you took the time out to have a beautiful walk even if it wasn't to work or school.
The below pictures were of a walk I took through the State Botanic Gardens and park lands. Kings park is bigger than Central Park NYC. It is beautiful.
Getting back to nature is a wonderful reminder of what we do Sustainable September for.
|The Spring Festival at Kings Park, Perth, WA, opened this month with this awesome tree. Its called "The Queens Tree" because Queen Elizabeth planted it on her trip a few decades ago. For the Festival her tree was dressed up just like her. :)|

|Such a beautiful Spring display of Native Australian Flowers|

Our environment has such a powerful impact on us. How we treat it, has a greater impact on us all.
At the beginning of Sustainable September I shared that i would be reading the book by Bea Johnson called "Zero Waste Home: The Ultimate Guide to Simplifying Your Life by Reducing Your Waste". So far I haven't finished it, but I have learned a lot already. The first chapter is called "The 5 R's and the Benefits of the Zero Waste Lifestyle". This chapter has been an eye opener for me. Often we see the 3 R's Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, however Bea Johnson adds another two things to that list.
