Recycling–Disposable enticement, once again

Disposables

I’ve just returned from an event where plastic was plentiful. In honor of that event, let’s take another look at an earlier post.

——————————–

So enticing to trade needs-washing with just-throw-it-away. Disposables, especially those made from plastic, are wasteful and should be used in limited quantities. People have an obligation to maintain the environment. Here’s what to do:

  1. If you are planning an event, aim to use real rather than disposable.
  2. Never use Styrofoam cups, bowls, and plates.
  3. If you attend a regular function where disposables are used, bring your own cup, utensils, etc. so that you are contributing less to the waste.
  4. If you buy ready-made foods and drinks, pay attention to the wrapping and avoid foods and drinks that were packaged too much.
  5. Favor environmentally friendly products over plastic products.
  6. (If you have other ideas, please add in the comments.)

Clarifications about the basic tests for maintaining health, Test #1

I was asked for more information about the test questions that were presented in the previous post.  I am reposting with more information.

Test #1: Sensitivity to environmental concerns

The state of the environment directly affects the health of people. People who live in a highly polluted and vegetation-free environment are subjected to damage that can cause physical ailments, but also can cause damage to the soul. People who live in a vegetation-rich area, but are careless in their relationship to their environment, can suffer from damage to their physical and soulful selves too.

Disregard for plant life, water sources, and conditions for animal rearing undermines the grounding of the world and damages physical and intellectual health. Knowingly contributing to abuse of fauna and flora damages people—body and soul.

Here are the questions for the basic test:

  1. Recycle? Yes/No/Partially
  2. Use water judiciously? Yes/No/Sometimes
  3. Use chemical agents for cleaning or insect infestations? Yes/No/Only for insect infestations/Only for cleaning
  4. Support conservation efforts and interested in well-being of trees and plants? Yes/No
    (explanation: being aware of and actively participating in maintenance of local and distant environments. For example, contributing money to and/or volunteering with organizations that maintain and protect the environment [local arboretums, global or national environmental organizations, picking up trash in a littered part of the city, local environmental advocacy groups])
  5. Care about animal welfare? Yes, including the animals that I eat/Yes, I care about my pet/Yes, except for animals who disturb my garden/No/Sometimes
    (explanation: animal welfare is broad and can be overwhelming. It includes awareness about conditions at places that raise animals for food [industrial meat, egg, and dairy industries], raise animals for our enjoyment [puppy mills, fur farms], zoos [humane or not], importation of endangered animals and birds.)

There are additional questions; however, these five are a good beginning. Consider your answers and then consider the meaning of each question.

Being sensitive to the environment is good for your health!

The previous post “Monitoring Health” (https://energy-guidance-complete.com/2014/08/24/monitoring-health/) brings awareness of the tests that should be performed in order to evaluate health.

Here is Test #1.
