    I will admit it: as a single individual, I'm not doing quite that much. I make every effort to use the car as little as possible, turn off the engine at road construction waits, and known-to-be-long signals. I never burn the cut grass and weeds, as so many of these country farmers do. I do recycle, and am conscious of the need of trying to cut back on things that have PCBs in their construction--but that's a hard one. And, I am keeping up, as best I can, when I can, on what's happening, and what can be done about it. I don't eat so much meat, as compared to when I lived in the USA, but I can't give it up altogether, either. I'll keep trying.

    I don't waste much resources myself, but few things are intriguing here.
    You must be eating only vegetarian food picked up and cooked daily, or eat out all the time. If you consume lots of meat and dairy, refrigerator is a must.
    Do you really suffer lack of water in Philippines? I thought it rains there all the time.
    Be wary of people who tend to glorify the past, underestimate the present, and demonize the future.

    Using less is one thing, if possible without sacrificing hygiene and food growth. Recycling is the other for of saving water. Recycling is however energy intensive process and can transfer some diseases too. In this case using rainwater is more "green".


    As for the refrigerator, the market and grocery are very near us so we almost always only buy and cook what we need. And I'm not vegetarian LOL. Where's the fun in that?
    Right. I guess, we in the West, hate doing grocery shopping every day. ;)
