We Accept Da DARE!
Kimo: We are finally gittin' around to accepting da DARE by Mr. Chen to save da environment. In this dare we are supposed to show how we work on saving da environment.

Sabi: Here we are in our condo. As you can see, it is made from cardboard, that can be recycled when we git tired of it. You can make a side-by-side duplex or a two-story condo. It's like a mobile home too cuz it can be moved. Here we are demonstrating da penthouse configuration.


Kimo: I likes to turn out da lights when we is not in a room and we changed da bulbs to them new piggy-tail shaped bulbs.


Sabi: We recycle our newspaper and other paper stuff like junk mail. Here I am sittin' in da paper recycling crate, which also doubles as a "time out" spot fer me.


Kimo: Instead of throwin' away them clingy "popcorn" thingies, we just send them to someone else!


Sabi: Here we are snoopervising da laundry. We recommended to Mommakitty that she hangs it outside on a good day to dry. It's a pretty boring snoopervision job unless it's furry windy, then da clothes dance around.


Kimo: Some of da other ways our fambly helps da environment:
- Our beans both drive Priuses
- We use biodegradable soaps
- We don't gots any air-conditioning in da house (we stay furry still when it's hot)
- Our yard is a zeriscape (that means we don't gots to water it much)
- We use cooking water to water da potted plants
- We reuse our shopping bags and have some canvas bags too
- We gits a good deal on our garbage bill cuz we opt fer a smaller garbage bin, but a larger recycle and green bin
- We use soapy water on da plants instead of pesticides

Sabi: There's probably more we do, but that's good fer now. We're tryin'.

You do lots of good things for the environment. Congratulations. We kept out big garbage bin, so we don't have put it out as often.

great job saving the environment! if all beans do half those things, we would be so much better off.

mine do many of these things too. my mommy and daddy have gone completely green in the garden like your beans!!

we do use our air conditioning, but only when it is really hot and humid. mommy can deal with the hot, but she refuses to "swim" thru humidity in the house.

What a good job you are doing!!
We need to see if we can get a lower garbage bill because we don't throw away much at all.
Great ideas!!

You do an excellent job. We are trying to convince the male that now that our plants are set in for over a year, everything in our yard should do well without much water... sigh. He hasn't gotten it yet.

You do many good things for the environment. Please be careful in your cardboard condo, because it might not be safe in a hurricane!

Those are really cool ways to help the environment. We already do some of those things (like the cardboard condo) and we never knew we was helping, we just thought that's how everyone lives.

Oh, that's a very cool condo. We never get big boxes like that.

You're doing a fine job being green!

Cat with a garden said...

You're being very nice to the environment! I liked the condo a lot and will demand one of those from my mom. She brings home boxes to play aswell, but we have never tried them as a condo. The photos went along real good with the text, your pawparazzi did a great job.
