Your Power, Your Choice!

We are a wasteful society that is easily swayed towards consumerism, failing to take responsibility for our waste, when there is NO AWAY…just Mother Earth!

  1. how very true, people have so much stuff ! most of it useless, we can all save on water and electric….i was wondering how you manage with internet ? i too am living very frugrally on a very low budget but would like access to the internet. it is lovely to connect with people.

  2. Hi Colette, Loved this post! In California we have “smart meters” for our electricity. Just last week a utility truck pulled up to my house, a guy got out and proceeded to test and stare at my meter for over a hour. Apparently they needed to make sure I was not stealing from them or that the meter was not defective, because they thought there was no way I used so little electricity. I have no TV, washing machine, have LED lights, etc. I have to say it’s really sad when someone that saves energy is almost looked at as doing something criminal.

    1. I agree…we should be rewarded and here’s how…everyone should have a certain amount of low price electric supply, then after that allowance is used, the price can double, or even treble…or more! Thus encouraging low use and no need for a continually expanding supply system! However, corporate capitalism is all about using more, extracting more and wrecking Mother Earth for us! Blessings X
