(We just need to develop the habit) Has some info about developing habits. Conservation is great but the easier – the better.

I know its hard to alter our day to day habits and more small changes, nonetheless its doable.

Lately, I have been residing in Europe for my studies and I have notice an increase of individuals being mindful of discarding their trash along with recycling bottles. I personally am from California and have been a practicing environmentalist for some time now and it has made me feel more respectful of our planet. Not to mention being aware of the high amount of chemicals which are contained in each product and decreasing my intake of unnecessary chemicals and opting to use natural fruits, herbs and vegetable instead of products which are overloads with harmful substances.

Thank you for sharing an enlightening article with us and I wish you and your family much success with all your endeavors.

Some get in through the storm drain system, but alot comes by people being careless and tossing their water bottles in or along the creek or river whenever they happen to empty it. People First Orange County has a community inclusion project on the Oso Creek Trail and plastic water bottles is high on the list of trash but is coming down lately. So that is some good news. But it would be better if people used re-usable water containers when they went outside and also used more filtered tap water at home–filtered tap water is as healthy as bottled water and costs alot less. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

My family has been transitioning out of those water bottles for about a year now, and I feel really good about our progress. And now thanks to your blog I know about how much we are saving money and the environment. We use the metal refillables, and those keep the water cold for a long time!

Hopefully as more of us become enlightened, a change will snowball. Grow your own gardens using a greenhouse, ride a bike when driving is not required,compost, etc…
We can each make a difference if we simply try. You inspire others by your actions.Thank you.
