Here are some ways to help our Mother Earth:
1...Reduce,reuse,recycle! Reduce the use of disposables; use reusable plates and silverware if you are dining in. Choose a reusable cup, mug, or water bottle instead of disposable cups. Recycle cans, bottles, newspapers and anything recyclable.
2...Use water wisely, everyone knows how precious and limited our water resources are. Look for ways to reduce your water usage, like fixing leaky faucets and running toilets, reducing water usage when cleaning and irrigation and saving water while cooking and washing dishes.
3...Lights out! Conserve energy! Turn off lights when not in use, power down computers at the end of the day, and unplug any unnecessary electronic devices.
4...Carpooling,vanpooling,biking,walking,work a 4 day work week instead of 5 or taking the train are earth-friendly ways to commute to work.
5...Get outside more, plant a garden,plant a few trees! Trees are like big air conditioners, providing shade to your home,there-by not having to use that air conditioner,let's not forget, great for a tree swing! Planting your own garden, growing your own food has many benfits, like,getting you outside,fresh air, getting your bare hands in the dirt(no gloves,feel the good earth),and you will not have to travel to the store to buy it.
6...One thing as a cast member at Club 33 that I started, was the glass bottle recycling program. Approx. 1990, with my managers approval, glass bottles, from the kitchen,bar and glass water bottles from the dining rooms were placed in plastic bins. At the end of the day, all glass was removed downstairs and placed in a huge metal bin. At first it was a work in progress,then slowly, the volume increased to were that huge metal bin was picked up every other day. As of this writing, that glass recycling is still at Club 33.
7..At the Disneyland Resort,all the on-stage trash bins are collected,emptied and removed backstage and sorted for plastic bottles,soda cans and anything else recyclable. All the mill shops,painting shops,in other words thru-out the Disneyland Resort, "RECYCLING" is a way of life for all cast members.
