Just because something doesn’t do what you planned it to do doesn’t man its useless.
October 3rd - repurpose, reuse
In life you need either inspiration or desperation.
We are fast becoming a throw away society. We use plastic products that promise to minimize the time housewives spend accomplishing their daily chores. Why spend valuable time washing and reusing household objects like plates and silverware when they can be inexpensively made of plastic and disposed of after each use.
In the last fifty years we have seen an explosion of products created with a one use life span. We replaced glass milk bottles and soda bottles with plastic which winds up in our landfill buried under the ground.
More than any other product, plastic has shaped modern society. Just use and throw away. But we need to consider our actions and what the cost of that action actually is.
The principle of avoiding wastefulness may be applied to clothes, furniture,and machines. Keeping things in good repair and using them as long as it’s practical shows we have appreciation for what we have.
Before discarding items still in good condition, consider who might be happy to have them. Share the joy an item gave you by passing it on to another.
A throw away society can never bring about happiness. We should all learn to reduce our production of waste and encourage efforts at recycling,
You may delay but time will not.
