Doing One Thingtelecommatt | January 21, 2008
I am in the midst of reading the book Ethics for the New Millennium, a book by the Dalai Lama, which I highly recommend. In it, he talks about taking time each day to reflect on one thing we’ve done for someone in a spirit of compassion.
Following this line of thinking, I am challenging myself to come up with one thing each day that I’ve done for the environment. I’m certainly not talking about setting unrealistic expectations. However small our contribution to what is important to us, we have to begin someplace. So, every day, somehow, I will give something back.
My contribution today? Instead of running the dishwasher, we hand-washed our dishes and let them dry in the dishwasher racks. We saved water and electricity this way.
