bottom line (or bottom of the continuum) consider the impact that your actions have on others. but that's hard isn't it. it means reduce the garbage you create. it means consider where your food comes from. it means not using the air, water and land as our dumping ground. it means not breeding and being part of the exploding human population that thinks it has a god given right to this planet above all other creatures.
recycling banana peels is avoiding the issue....stop drinking your precious tim horton's coffee (with two cups so you don't burn your little fingers), stop with the fast food...it's garbage for the body and now it's garbage on the streets.
