Loving Earth

There must be a reason why some people can afford to live well. They must have worked for it. I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things we could use.

Hit two birds with one stone. That’s what I think this is.

One is to preserve the dying “industry” of snail mail postal services and two, its environment friendly because we can now get rid of our electronic junks easily and they will think of our trash instead of us storing or piling them up somewhere in our homes or disposing them improperly.

What am I talking about? It’s the recycle electronics by mail by the U.S. Postal Service which is just on a trial stage at the moment in 10 key cities in the U.S. including Washington, D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles and San Diego. It is a tie up project of the postal service with Clover Technologies group, a company in the U.S. known to recycle, remanufacture and remarkets inkjet cartridges and small electronics, as told by Computer World. If successful, it will go nationwide in the fall, it said.

To use the "Mail Back" program, find one of the 1,500 post offices that offers special free envelopes. Drop in your recyclable electronics item, and mail it without postage. Best of all, for those of us who live on the road, you can take as many "Mail Back" envelopes as you please, and use them to mail your electronics from anywhere. How convenient is that!

I think this idea is great. I hope it turns out successful in U.S. and eventually spread all over the world. We only got one planet and we all have the responsibility to take care of it. We all heard about the Global Warming and we should do our part even in our own little way to lessen the injury.


On 29 March 2008 the Philippines will join countries around the world as we literally "turn the lights out" for Earth Hour - an event that will fuel awareness on climate change and prove that when the people of the world work together, they can make a difference in the fight against global warming.

Earth Hour will take place throughout the Philippines from 8 to 9 in the evening on Saturday night, 29 March 2008. WWF invites you to participate by shutting off lights for 60 minutes, organizing your own "lights-out" event or by forwarding information to your friends, workmates and family.

If you want to know more about the Earth Hour and what time and when it will be held in your country or if you want to participate as an individual go visit the Earth Hour website.

Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life.
