Treat the earth well; it was not given to you by your parents. It was loaned to you by your chidren. We don't inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.

Label us "slow learners", just how much plastic do we need and why can't we mend, fix or otherwise repair and reuse instead of throwing away? We used to even mend our socks or anklets. Remember them? Anklets, I mean. I had a Grandson ask me what a "davenport" was. Oh, dear !
