recycle, reuse

I don't know about you, but I'm feeling pretty green lately. And no, I'm not turning green physically. But if you've been around for the past few years, you know what I mean. Here are some thoughts to take with you:
-when you buy something, understand that you will eventually have to dispose of it. Recycle, dispose carefully, or let it be one of the few things you do throw away in your life
-don't let the water run while you do the dishes; soak all at once in the beginning, rinse with soap, and then turn the sink on again to get the soap off
-automatic flushers are stupid
-plastic water bottles are stupid; you can save tens of thousands of dollars by just using an aluminum or bpa-free reusable plastic water bottle

Peace out.

Hi. My name is Jen, and I am a news junky.
I religiously read CNN and leave strongly worded comments on certain articles that I find interest in. I love Anderson Cooper. I love knowing what's going on on network television news before they announce it. I like checking my CNN profile to see how many "Likes" and replies I get. Always a few likes, always some helpful comments, always some philosophical nonsense ramblings. I like the feel of newspaper and the smell of the ink, though I don't really like reading about YESTERDAY'S news. I love being able to tell my family members what's going on in the world. I love arguing with people who tell false facts. I love reading about people who get their severed hands reattached. I love reading about natural disasters....this year is natural disaster year.
