THE little things you can do to help our planet may be small. In some ways, they’re barely recognisable as help — but everything you do, big or small, does matter.
Here, look at it this way. You’re knocking down a wall. You can only do it piece by piece and every minute piece matters. That’s how it gets done. You’re probably flabbergasted thinking “what is he going on about with this wall nonsense?” If that’s you scratching your head that’s ok. Here are some ways to help in the bathroom:
1. Use a bamboo toothbrush (careful a panda might try to steal it). I use one because it reduces my carbon footprint caused by single use plastic.
2. Use a shower timer to take short showers (don’t waste water and electricity, save on your bills!).
3. Turn the tap off while you’re brushing your teeth (again don’t waste water and electricity).
4. Try not to use baby wipes (they might be so soft and useful, but if they’re flushed, they become a problem).
The three “p”s — flushing do’s and don’ts
A poem ish by Oscar Wilson
We all know the do and don’ts of the porcelain pot
Like poo and pee ya we know the lot
But when we flush down baby wipes yikes! They don’t biodegrade
Toilet paper (easy peasy it has toilet in its name!)
So that’s the do’s and don’ts of the chamber pot
Now the ones I did not add
Were things you most defiantly shouldn’t not flush
Like your mom and your dad!
Thanks for reading! See you next time.
