Blog Action Day: Environmental Concern

So, what do I do for the environment? Let me count some of the ways:

1. Whenever I buy items from 7-11, especially for a single item, I don't ask or even let the cashier bag my purchase. Also, if I am bringing my own bag, I just dumped my purchase inside it as long as I still have extra space.

2. I don't smoke cigarettes.

3. I don't have my own vehicle. (If I would, I want it to run with biofuel - Err... I just hope this does not cost much when the time comes I am to purchase.)

4. The REUSE/RECYCLE principle: for plastic bottles to be utilized again as water containers when I attend my Capoeira training and do swimming; for office printouts, reuse for doodling (hehe) and brainstorming.

5. Common sense: put the trash inside the trash bin. For segregated trash cans, put the right trash on the right bin. Need I say more?

6. Non-CFC aerosols for me. Always check the labels.

7. I reuse that "green bag" from SM Supermarket whenever I do grocery shopping since the day I got it. It would have been much better if the bag were made of canvass instead of the seemingly plastic green material.

I may have offended one of these (but never #2!) but nevertheless, in most cases, I adhere to them. Such no-brainers I assume, yet too hard to be habitual to some. What do you do for your environment? Do you still care?

i do the segregation of waste in the hospital premises (we're required din naman so why violate right?):

green for biodegradables;
black for the non-biodegradables;
black with white tie for body parts (eeew);
yellow for the infectious/pathological waste;
red for the sharps;
white for pharmacologic waste;
white with black tie for bottles; and
orange for the radioactive ones.

ang dami no, kainis! =)

an infection control nurse once found (and by found, i mean, she literally dug every waste bin in our entire ward) a single used glove in a black bin and the next thing we knew, every one of us are making incident reports.

and oh, i dont smoke as well. =)

@Ladymacho: If I were the haranguing type, I would gladly do so.. Hehe. The thing is, most of the time, my introversion gets in the way.

@Ruff: Grabe, ang dami naman non. Do you have labels for those in case someone misses which one's which?

Good for you, you don't smoke. Ayoko talaga sa usok ng sigarilyo. I have this "psychological" allergic reaction on cigarette smoke - skyrockets my annoyance. Even my father knows this, at kapag naninigarilyo siya, I would often offer my dismayed face. I've told him it's not good for him and the family. Seems he have just developed an obvious addiction. Err...
