“Unless someone like you…cares a whole awful lot…nothing is going to get better…It’s not.”

The title is from, The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss.  I saw it on the blog called, “Vermont Litter With a Story to Tell.”  His mission is to promote a culture that is intolerant of trash.

I thought that I would share that blog with you.  It is from a Vermonter who just wants to make a difference.

I like that.

His name is Bernie Paquette.

These are his words:

On an individual level in 2012, will you compost in order to build new rich soil? Will you plant a tree to help prevent soil erosion and to slow carbon build up?  Will you pick up littered trash to prevent it from reaching our waterways where it kills fish and other aquatic life? Will you find ways to use less plastic? (Plastic never completely deteriorates and it is killing birds, fish, and turtles while polluting our ocean shores.) Will you place sustainability in the forefront of your production and consumption decisions? How will you personally transition from a participant in a gluttonous wasteful economy to a participant in a Green sustainable economy?

Thanks, Bernie.

I will also ask, “What are you doing to be a part of a Green sustainable economy?”  Kinda fits in with my last post about the Keurig…

Thanks for reading, and please, go check out Bernie’s blog if you have a moment.

Responsibility in not convenient — it’s necessary.

Rethink.  Refuse.  Reduce.  Reuse.  Reimagine.




  1. Thanks for recommending this blog, David!!!

    I’m trying to be part of the Green Sustainable economy and definitely have a lot of bad feelings for the Keurig (although I know so many people who have one, that it really sickens and saddens me)!

    I love this post and I hope we can connect with like-minded bloggers in every state and around the world to grow awareness of these issues!
