The exposed emails now confirm what we all knew. These environmental extremists are doing nothing but taking away our freedom. I’ll bet everyone of them drives a car and lives in a heated house with running water.

Mother Earth needs our help!!!

If you lack the requisite common senve to understand why that is, don’t worry, I’ll see to it that two trees get planted in your honor.

There is 5 acres of property destined to be developed into a business strip and I am doing my best to see that 1/4-1/2 acre if not more is saved for nature.

I also am continuing to compost and recycle. I have been composting long before it was fashionable.

Even though it sometimes seems unaffordable. Sometimes it makes more since to eat local than organic. Oh, and expand my small garden into patio containers as well as last years plot.

I look for seed that fall from Royal and Christmas Palm Trees and plant them. On Earth day I gave away many small trees, I have loved for over a year. If they are all planted a number of new trees will grow on Oahu. I also look around in my potted plants, in trees, under piles of leaves and especially in the rain gutters. Bird droppings have given me ten new umbrella plants just this year, which are growing fast. I will sell these plants to pay for more soil and pots to keep them growing.

My next step it to turn our front yard into a garden and teach my neighbors how to do the same. Even though I am just a renter, I always landscape, put in drip irrigation on a timer and leave the property with a garden and trust it will encourage others to do the same. It has cost me lots but that is my gift to our Precious Cosmic Home, Planet Earth.

I also sort through our trash and find our neighbors stuff in the wrong trash. They don’t care so I will take care.
Mahalo, Sunny Moritz

The units are cheap and effective! (You can get one at any hardware store and easily install it yourself.)

I save lots of water per shower, and it helps make my showers more luxurious. (I no longer need to bathe in a rush in order to save water! I can soap up while the water is “shut off” and rinse off under “instant-on” warm water.)
