Clean Ups Why do Them?

Clean Ups Why do Them?


Every time I go to work, out with friends, or with my family I get told the same thing: Nothing is wrong with the environment. I’m going to be real with you for a moment: I believe that is total bull shark. Everywhere I go there’s a piece of material that someone considered “trash” on the ground or in a water stream. Cigarettes, plastic bottles, pop cans, plastic bags, and so much more can be found in your local parks, sidewalks, and ponds. But at the end of the day nothing is wrong right? I mean as long the trash is not in your direct line of vision it’s not there right? Well it is whether we open are eyes to see it or not and the other species that we share land and water streams with are paying for it. I’ve done several clean ups in my life whether it’s been on my own or with other people, and I constantly see the same materials of trash that could have been recycled rather then dumped on the ground over and over again. And I run into the same people that applaud me and thank me for the work I do because they complain to me that the streams and land that they see are trashed and no one has come to clean them up. Yet when I mention the idea of them joining me or throwing out the idea of them picking up a piece of trash and recycling it on their own they cower and claim that they have no time because they have a “thing” they have to go to at 8:00AM or are too busy doing anything else with their time. Seriously when is enough going to be enough? When will we grow tired of making excuses? Is cutting an hour or even 30 minutes out of your Netflix and chill time to help protect the place that has given you food, water, materials for cloths, and being the life source you need to survive that much of a hassle? Well no matter what other people to choose to do I still have hope. I still believe that people care and will slowly make steps towards an eco-friendly and sustainable future where trash does not exist on every land and water stream. This is why I do clean ups, and if anyone ever wants to join me they can or if anyone would like to do their own or invite me to participate in one I would be honored. And whether I’m with a group or picking up trash on my own, I will continue to do clean ups. #codegreen

Yes, You to Can Recycle Water

Yes, You to Can Recycle Water

Hey Guys and Welcome! I’m CodenameGreen and I know I’ve been a huge slacker on writing blog posts recently but here I am and I’m ready to get back to the writing business. So recently I’ve become obsessed with the task of finding the most efficient ways to reduce the amount of water I use. When you’re paying your own bills and have a lot of plants, a cat, and fish demanding water, you want to cut corners anyway you can (plus being eco-friendly is what we’re all about right?). This means not only reducing water by cutting baths for showers, and cutting long showers for shorter showers, but also saving water that you’ve used. That’s right I’m talking about recycling water which leads to a term called “grey water” (and no I’m not talking about sewage water which is literally grey). This is just saving water that has been used for something like cooking, cleaning, or whatever else you do with water in your life. Now I know a lot of people have concerns with using water that has been ran through soap products through showering or cleaning dishes to water plants that grow food that they later eat due to the plants possibly absorbing the chemicals. If you do feel this way, then you can either filter the water before using it or you can use that water for watering your flowers and other non-food plants. The water you then get from cooking or other non-soap activities can be used to water your food plants. If you are lucky enough to receive rain this Summer, you can always capture and use that water as well. Plants are natural filterers and will be able to process any water that you decide to feed them. Comment down below and share how you’re working to reduce and save water!
