Hey! How's tricks? I have to tell you something. Two things actually.
Firstly, you need to know about an awesome lady who runs an awesome cafe in Wynyard, Tasmania. It's called Bruce's and her name is Lisa. You can find out some info about Bruce's here and here. You also need to know that Bruce's is one of my most favouritest places to be and if you are in the area, you should totally visit and check it out. Stellar service, brilliant food, lurvely coffee, plus if you have rugrats it is kidlet friendly. And the view is fan-fricking-tastic.
Anyway, the reason I mention Lisa (and Bruce's) is because she posted a status update on Facebook recently about the One Million Women campaign. I hadn't heard of it before, had a looksy at the website and thought, hey! I can do that! Seriously, it's amazingly easy, go and have a gander and you'll see what I mean.
You sign up and check out at all the different ways you can cut pollution in your every day life. They have a list. You click the ones you think you can manage (for yourself or your household) and before you know it, you've pledged to cut a bucketload of pollution. Just like that. Honestly, it's so simple, when I looked at the different lists, half of them I already do and a bunch of others I had thought about trying and now just have a little bit of extra motivation. How far you take it is up to you.
We can talk about carbon tax and emissions and whatnot until the ice caps melt, or we can take action and do something.
Now all I have to do is remember to take those bloody green Woollies bags when I get the weekly groceries.
