The Four R’s of Earth Care
You’ve heard of the three ‘r’s ever since grade school—reading, ‘riting, and ‘rithmatic……and the three R’s in modern times pertaining to Earth Care, which are Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle.
But did you know there is a fourth R for Earth Care? As in ‘Refuse?’ It’s very pertinent as we consider greening up for spring in our homes and gardens.
- Refuse to use non-organic lawn care and pesticides which not only foul up the water supply, but can be damaging to birds and bees, pollinators of fruits and flowers.
- Refuse to let rain water runoff get away when a rain barrel or catch basin can capture it and it can be re-used for needed application in the lawn and garden.
- Refuse to purchase any and all materials unless they come from sustainable sources. Refuse to buy products from corporations who do not follow good environmental practices. Avoid plastic.
- Refuse to de-nude your property of all natural ‘wild growth’, and be prudent in pruning – natural growth serves as a haven for some of our less-iconic wild creatures (rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks). Remember– -“all God’s critters have a place in the choir.” Even insects! (ok, maybe not all the mosquitoes!)
- Reduce the amount of water used in lawn and garden to the minimum. Let nature supply the rest! Use water conservation troughing between rows in the garden.
- Recycle grass clippings, trimmings, and other organic waste into the compost.
