Earth Day 2016

graphic by Zoolatry




Today is EARTH DAY!   In the spirit of Earth Day we're recycling this post from 2009!  Since that date, Mom has gotten really good about using her reusable bags every time she goes to the store.  She's even gotten more bags than these pink ones!  We have single stream recycling and we recycle a LOT more now that it can all go into one can.



Allie says that reusable shopping bags help keep the Earth clean!






And they make a good place to take a nap!!



An Earth Day Song:

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

(Tune: Itsy Bitsy Spider)

Reduce, reuse, recycle; words that we all know.
We have to save our planet so we can live and grow.
We might be only cats, but we will try, you’ll see.
And we will save the planet; it starts with you and me!

My human uses totes sometimes... and sometimes she doesn't because she wants the paper bags so she has something to put the recycled cans and bottles in! I'm not sure this makes any sense.

Happy Earth Day to you all too! We recycle as well. In fact, until a trash company gave us a barrel with their name on it (so they would know the few times we had stuff we couldnt recycle, TBT used to go to the landfill once evry couple of months. He recycles or composts nearly EVRYTHING!

In fact, if it weren't fer our used litter and the occasional pieces of styrofoam, he wouldn't need anny pickup.

Happy Earth Day!!! I love the Earth Day song. And you are so right about reusable bags...they keep all those yucky plastic bags out of our landfills though I have never napped on one.

The song is purrefct as is the singer. Mau is mooning over his beautiful and talented girl. Our humans started recycling in the 70s before it was popular. We now have that one-stream recycling as well. Mom doesn't like it that much as there are now some things that they will not take. Reusable bags are a must. When we want a bag to play in, Dad asks for one at the store. Excellent job purrmoting Earth Day. Mau sends Allie all his love and smooches, XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

You are so smart! I "recycled" too but didn't word it like that and NEXT year I am going to steal your idea when I repeat my post and hope I remember to use the words that my post was "recycled!!" xoxo

Happy Earth Day! I must say you look nice on those pink bags. So great that the bags can help the earth be a better place by recycling and also offer a nice place to nap.

Appropriately enough, today was our trash pickup day and we had a lot more recyclables and actual trash.

Our humans have used reusable bags ever since living in Germany, where they were ahead of North America with such things.

Mom L and Dad P are recycle, reuse die hards. Being in California makes it pretty easy to do. Mother Earth deserves better care

Brian said...

Great job Allie! We love our planet and sure hope everyone takes good care of it!
