Today we remember the planet we live on, that we have to take care of it so it will last and last for many more kitties to come. Mum filled me in that Earth Day was founded by Gaylord Nelson who was from Wisconsin and was our US Senator at the time.
So what do mum and I do for good old planet Earth? Well the biggest thing is we recycle. The last dare was about recycling so I am re-cycling my post from Sept 13, 2008.
So what do we do, we recycle! I am even recycled! Here I am in our old recycling bin, it was empty except for me. Why do I consider myself recycled? Well this is my second home. I was wasn't just thrown away, I was sent to the shelter to be recycled to a new home. So now I live with mum, living a good life, being reused as a loving companion.
Recently where we live decided to help us do more to recycle, we got these huge carts to use to put our recycling in and they pick up every other week. Plus mum doesn't put the cart out until it is full. Then the truck can drive by our house and not waste energy just putting a little bit of stuff in the truck.
Here is the big cart sitting in the metal monster room. Mum had to move stuff around to make enough space for it.
See it says recycling only on top, plus they now let us put more types of plastic in this to be recycled. We can do number 1-7 plastics, but not the plastic bags. But the bags go back to the store if we get too many.
There is me, the recycled kittie checking out the recycled stuff, bottles, plastic, glass, cans, paper and boxes. It is almost full, so mum will put the cart out next week on Thursday for pickup.
