It is only Tuesday, Time for a little break from trying to BE GREEN.
I just heard about a new project around town and at Kealakehe High School in Kona, Hawaii called PROJECT GREEN………an environmental group designed to help raise awareness and do good stuff in the community…..
Maybe we will hear more in the future..
Aloha & A Hui Ho…
Aloha. Seems like I think I can take a break, & then. …… there is some more cans & bottles to recycle…..
Here in Hawaii, the govt. does pretty good with their HI5 program.
A lot of people though think RECYCLING is just about bottles, cans, and plastic bottles since you technically get 5 cents for each can. RECYCLING is about putting back into the USEABILTY stream anything that is still useful….
Isn’t that better than just digging a big hole (landfill) and dropping anything in there and hope that in 20 years it will decompose into organic matter?
REduce First, then ReUse, and then ReCycle.
In just 15 minutes I filled up 2 big 55 gallon barrels of HI5 recycling (aluminum cans, plastic bottles, glass bottles) for WaveRider Recycling over at Kealakehe High School the other night. As a pup, it is pretty amazing the amount of stuff that humans create, and just “leave behind”.
REDUCE is a good motto…..I’m trying to get better„ you know„ use less bones and chew up less shoes…..
Seriously, take a look at how you can REDUCE by looking at the things you buy.
Do you really need the 24 pack or does it come in a Gallon size?
Or could ya just drink water out of a bowl like me…….
Aloha and A Hui Ho
You know, there’s only one good reason not to like DIGITAL CAMERAS„„
PEOPLE take pictures of some of the worst times in your life, or just those compromising situations„„like my pic here.
Anyway, I kinda like the big blue barrels i see popping up around the Big Island. They look clean and nice, they are BIG and deep, they stand out in a crowd, and they themselves came from RECYCLED stock. Here is a pic of one being re-used by WaveRider Recycling in Kona, Hawaii. It is good when we can RE-USE something like a big blue plastic barrel to RECYCLE other stuff from going in the landfill, and thus helping to malama our aina.
Aloha and a Hui Ho.
Recycle, Recycle, Recycle……that is what I mostly did yesterday here in Hawaii„no beach, did go swim in the county pool (until they figured out I was a only a dog).
The panorama pic shows all the recycle bins and barrels I was cleaning out..
The bins are used at Kealakehe High School for classroom recycling of Mixed Recycling (paper, cardboard, some plastics, some glass, and aluminum) and HI 5 Recycling (cans, bottles, plastic bottles).
The barrels are used around the school campus to catch HI 5 recycle….Because they are taller, they are a little harder for me to to work on ….But I persisted and did it..
People„, we need to REDUCE so we dont have to RECYCLE so much…..
Aloh and a Hui o Ho.
“One Man gathers what another Man spills”
Recycling…….can sure make a young pup tired…….
Whew….spent most of da day washing recycle bins and 55 gallon barrels…..
Got dirty, was stinky, but the job got done….next time will get more kokua-help.
One cool thing about Big island, Hawaii is the lack of big corporate chains and their big signs.. Corporate identity gets a little homogeneous and boring on the mainland.
Too many signs just makes me sleepy..aloha and a hui ho.
I’m Lomi a.k.a. Boogie, and I live up mauka near the Kaloko area on the West Side of the Big Island of Hawaii… I write this blog when I have time„„from my busy executive DOG schedule…I will continue to focus on the environmental and green aspects of the Big Island Of Hawaii..I will keep looking for good videos, and good models of recycling and share them with you here at my eco=blog—Thanks for visiting..
