Earth Day Sunday Selfies

We're pawticipating in The Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfies today.







Today is also EARTH DAY!   In the spirit of Earth Day we're recycling this post from 2009! Allie took some great selfies for that post so we figured we should RECYCLE them!  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!

It's great that Allie is showing the right way to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Our human, too, has a pile of these bags. Purrs!

That is a good message! My human tries to recycle, but she could do a much better job!

Happy Earth Day to you all. Yup we both recycle a lot, mainly Mrs H when she cycles to the village. MOL
Lovely spot for a selfie, Allie, and that pink bag is not only reusable but comfortable and complimentary too!

Well done, Allie. We have single stream recycling here, too. When we don't use reusable bags, we take the bags we get to the shelter to use.

We always take reusable shopping bags to the store. Our Paisley likes to sleep on them and play with them too. :)

Our Mom recycles all the brown bags she gets from the store and uses lots of bags like those pretty pink ones too. More peeps need to do the same. Lovely to see Allie so sweet in pink.

I'm sure Allie and Kali must have discussed the reusable bag sleeping area as Kali was a fanatic about recyclying. She would sleep on the reusable bags as soon as they were put on the floor.

Your poem was marvelous, Allie.

Loves,

Shoko

I have a bunch of those bags but then never think to bring them to the store with me! But I always throw by recyclable cans, plastics and cardboards in paper grocery bags, and use plastic bags to scoop Mudpie's used litter into :)

The Island Cats said...

Happy Earth Day! You’re right about those reusable bags, Allie.

In the Way-Back time machine, Mom's Mom started recycling back in the 1960s! My Mom was indoctrinated and she is a fanatic! And now she has a "thing" about plastic! She tries to buy as little stuff as possible and she uses wax paper for a lot of things...And I don't get to have my favorite cat food anymore because it comes in plastic cups...
And I love how the pick bags set of your glorious furs!
