I Took the dare!!!!

I Took the dare!!!!

Our friends at The Cat Realm had another "I Dare You".

They dared us all to come up with one creative, fun, useful way to save the environment and put a picture of yourself doing it on your blog.

Well we do quite a bit for the environment. We have a compost, we garden organically, we use cloth shopping bags, the PM used cloth diapers etc but I wanted to show you this-




The PM really didn't want me doing this one as this looks just like a pile of crap. "Not all organized and sorted". Oh well. To make it sound better than it looks I am calling it "Mount Creativity".

Here I am trying to ascend the mountain, one of my favorite pastimes.



I don't get to tackle it often as the mountain is in a closet.

The mountain is made up of all kinds of unwanted items, boxes, paper, cans, bottles, all types of plastics, milk containers, tops, paper towel inner rolls, broken toys, broken jewellery etc.

The PM and the wee ones then use those items to make some pretty cool things. We have a few books that are just about that.



I especially like the bird feeders as they help the birds get fat... er I mean, stay nice and healthy in the winter.

So we creatively recycle!

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

That's a cool room! I'd like to snoop around in there sometime. I especially like the birdfeeder idea..Yum! I mean, Yahoo?

PS..I don't know why you had a problem leaving a comment yesterday..all I can think of is that either Blogger was having a problem or the local server was having a problem. Would you try again today and see if it works? Thanks!

That's a unique example of being green - recycling junk! Good job!

Evie/VampyVictor said...

haha Your MOmma sounds like mine, she is fanatic about doing what she cans..
MOmma calls it ARK's ( from Evan Allmighty), she thinks that everything we does has some sort of impact later on so we should do everything we do with ARK.. Acts of Random Kindness.. so Momma has this big pile of old cereal boxes plastic bottle, cans etc ( cleaned of course), that she wants to make into recycled things... bah anyways I iz telling a too long a story.. My Momma thinks your MOmma is cool!! :))

Fin said...

Mommy has a similar pile in her Art Studio which Daddy calls her Craft Room or her Crap Room, when she's not listening. Nice work! Are those books you wrote?

Mickey said...

T'Abby Normal said...

We think you blend in very nicely and add a measure of elegance to the pile of objects. It's ART.

Purrs,

Oh, that's cool! Recycling in a whole new way! I like it. I tell momma that I want birdfeeders all over our back yard so that the tasty - I mean, Pretty - birds can come around.

Black Cat said...

I did have a safe voyage, thanks for asking!

I love your creative recycling, what a great idea! I recycle here but that just involves sorting the empties into categories (glass, plastic, paper, cardboard etc.) which is a boring chore, and putting it out for collection. :) xxx

Aoise said...

Gretchen and Mike said...

Great job! Lots of creativity in your house. I especially like the idea of fattening up the birds. But I'm an inside only cat, all I can do is watch them eat and sing.

Hugs...G
