Okay, so we’re off to a rocky start. My apologies for putting this up on a Monday when the purpose of Sustainable Sundays were to…nevermind. I had vertigo.
So, the purpose of this Sunday trend is share the various tips and tricks to a sustainable, earth-friendly lifestyle. But we all know about turning off the taps while you brush, switching off the lights, etc. But what else can we do? There’s a million things that we can do, but all it takes is just a little creativity!
Sustainable Sundays is not just about conserving, preserving and being an Eco Warrior. It’s also about love and harmony but more importantly, realistic and cost-effective approaches. Forget politics and corporate machines out to take you on a ride for money. Also, I’ll be really happy if you have any tips or suggestions on how you play your part as a Green Goddess so feel free to leave comments and I will publish them on the next post!
Donate Time. Not Money
Have you ever walked down the street, or a mall, or an office building and come across these booths that request your donations? Before you start signing up your credit card to donate money every month, why not actually take down the details of the organisation and volunteer in their activities instead.
Your local SPCA might also need some assistance with cleaning, or even dog-walking or keeping some of the cats company. If you’re up to it, adopt a dog that needs a home. SPCA Selangor receives more than 700 unwanted, abused, or homeless animals every month. Have a heart and give your time. Although your money be worth, giving time to these animals might is absolutely priceless.
The World Wildlife Fund are always on the lookout for nature-lovers to fight for wildlife conservation and various endangered species of animals that are on the brink of extinction. If you’re within a stone’s throw of Borneo, how about making a trip to Camp Leaky in Indonesia to lend a hand to care of the gentle orang-utans. Established in 1971 by Dr. Biruté Galdikas, Camp Leaky is an active research facility to care for orang-utans who have lost their habitat from forest fires and illegal logging. Camp Leakey welcomes day visitors with local guides, however visitors are not allowed to camp/stay overnight at Camp Leakey.
