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.

True but not well practiced, throw away commodities = throw away world.

We're using up their resources in the earth, on the earth, dirtying what's above the earth AND using up their money, too.

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 !
