Recycling....I Take It Seriously!

I've been so busy this two weeks clearing all my pending works and updating all my working paper to preparing this coming peak period and since my sis is coming home I myself saying a big NO to working after office hour.Hu~I missed her so much since last tyme she went home during Raya Aidilfitri.

Since I finished all my works, I decided to clear up all files and papers that has been on my table since I don't know when..HoHO~Actually I'm a recycle freak..I'm the one that start the policy in my company that all used paper is being collect and then we will sell it to Uncle "surat kabar lama"!Beside that I make sure that all the paper is use for both side and all used paper can be used as a divider for my working files.

We managed to collect about 16kg of used A4 papers!!at least I can save a tree from being cut down..If all of us can do this easy task and always create awareness toward preserving our tree and forest I think we can save so many tree from being cut down and maybe it can be as big as the Amazon!!! 


But sadly..not many of us especially in Malaysian society being open about the recyle programme.Even for my family, but after I always wanted to start the recyle programme at home and NatGeo & Discovery Channel documentary now my mom is  supporting me!My mom and I will separate the garbage into 4 individual bin..Papers, Plastic, Aluminum & Glasses.




Why we recycle?
Here some facts that I collect around:
  • 1 recycled tin can would save enough energy to power a television for 3 hours.
  • 1 recycled glass bottle would save enough energy to power a computer for 25 minutes.
  • 1 recycled plastic bottle would save enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for 3 hours.
  • 70% less energy is required to recycle paper compared with making it from raw materials.
  • Up to 60% of the rubbish that ends up in the dustbin could be recycled.
  • The unreleased energy contained in the average dustbin each year could power a television for 5,000 hours.
  • On average, 16% of the money you spend on a product pays for the packaging, which ultimately ends up as rubbish.
  • As much as 50% of waste in the average dustbin could be composted.
  • £36,000,000 worth of aluminum is thrown away each year.
  • Aluminum cans can be recycled and ready to use in just 6 weeks.
  • Glass is 100% recyclable and can be used again and again.
  • Glass that is thrown away and ends up in landfills will never decompose. 
  • Recycled paper produces 73% less air pollution than if it was made from raw materials.
  • It takes 24 trees to make 1 ton of newspaper.
  • Most families throw away about 40kg of plastic per year, which could otherwise be recycled.
  • Plastic can take up to 500 years to decompose. 



Okay,after I'm done recycling at my home & office. Let me show you guys how to protect our mother earth while shopping!!Its easy!Bring your own shopping bag instead of using the shops plastic bag. Do you know what is the shopping bags?I'll show you guys!! (^^,)



This is the typical shopping bags!I have 3 for myself!!
~Vincci, FOS & Jusco~


If you are a stylista,try to take the Go Green Campaign to the next level!
Hu~Try Marc Jacobs Shopping Bags,Always Shop With Style..Hu~


Why do we need to bring our own shopping bags?
Simple.To decrease the consumption of plastic bags!You know right that plastic taking almost 500 hundreds years to decompose and on the same time there are many animals such as dolphin, turtle and even bird dying mistaking the plastic bags as their foods and some of them are strangle by the plastic bags! It make me so sad!!! (T________T)


See It For Your Self~


I'm Sad!
 

There are so many harms can happen if we take for granted in protecting the mother earth. So this is the moment!This is the time for each one of us to take much more responsibilities toward preserving our nature.Try to start small, by recycle your old books, magazine or collect soft drinks tin or just try not to littering. Put all the garbage in the dustbin so the bird can't get choke by eating small plastic parts.


This is our mother earth and its our duty to take care of it!


Owh, I almost forget.
