What’s Your DOT??? July 17, 2010

The “Do One Thing” initiative asks community members to select a DOT to make their lives more sustainable.

A DOT is anything that improves your life and makes the world more sustainable.  For example:

* Switching from disposable coffee cups to non-disposable mugs

* Trading in you gas-guzzling SUV for a hybrid or pure electric vehicle

* Composting vegetable scraps instead of tossing them in the trash

Drinking filtered tap water and less bottled water * Bringing reusable bags to the store instead of choosing “paper” or “plastic” * Riding a bike to run local errands * Shopping for local, organic foods * Making more meatless meals

What’s Your DOT???

Let’s switch our focus from Greed to Green, from Profit First to Planet First

I do all of the above. Live frugally and you’ll live ecologically! could be a motto. Also now realize that I am definitely the older generation to theonlycin and I suspect not that much ‘younger’ in relation to you. Anyway, being of a different generation certainly explains a lot to me.
Also read all of your headings, including the caveat. Very well done. And it was good to find how to post a Blogroll. Take care.

Thanks, Loreen. Living frugally definitely lessens our impact on the planet.

Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose, Recycle. –> SAVE $$$’s

To my knowledge we don’t yet have electric cars in SA, but I do all the other things and belong to a paper and glass recycling drive.

(In answer to Loreen’s comment, I am 46 years old).
