THE THREE R’S: RECYCLE, REDUCE, REUSE
I woke up this morning just like every morning, it’s like Déjà vu. My days are getting closer ad closer together. Time is ticking away. Have you ever had that same feeling? “Déjà vu” describes the uncanny sensation that you’ve already experienced something, even when you know you never have.
There’s no conclusive evidence on how common it actually is, but varying estimates suggest anywhere between 60 and 80 percent of the population experience this phenomenon.
There's an expression, Deja vu, that means that you feel like you've been somewhere before, that you've somehow already dreamed it or experienced it in your mind.
Well, after a cup of coffee I realized that it was another day; a new day, it was Tuesday. Life is a journey. You may never know where you’re going, but part of the experience is the discoveries you make along the way.
However, there is only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is yesterday and the other is tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly live.
Today I’m going to complete my blogging on the problem with overcrowded landfills. The topic I will be blogging on is impressive solutions of landfills.
First, design and implementation of integrated waste management. The construction of modern landfills with well-engineered and managed disposal facilities can significantly lessen the impacts of landfill on soil, air, and water.
FOR EVERY 60 SECONDS 🌟
Good morning Tuesday ✨ For every 60 seconds you spend in anger you lose a minute of happiness 🌟 have a good day.
Landfills that are well-designed and operated ensure compliance with environmental preservation requirements and it ultimately ensures that the environment is free from contaminants.
The use of such designs also ensures the landfills are not located in environmentally-sensitive areas and are incorporated with on-site environmental monitoring systems. With on-site environmental monitoring systems, signs of land fill gas and groundwater contamination can be easily detected and controlled.
Second, recycle, re-use, and reduce. Landfill management will always remain a major environmental issue if communities don’t embrace the need of recycling, reducing and reuse.
The increased demand of manufactured products is what increases the final waste products that end up in the landfill. In this view, the use of recycling systems for electronic wastes, plastics, paper, metal, glass and other non-biodegradable materials can provide an effective means of reducing the landfill effects.
Reducing our demand for manufactured products and embracing re-use can equally favor reduction to both the toxicity and volume of waste that ends up in the landfill as waste. People have no option but to embrace the art of using manufactured products to the end of their useful life. These can be split into the following simple steps:
Respect the planet: A deep gratitude and recognition of how beautiful the planet is, including the interdependence of living and non-living things will help us exploit the planet positively while also giving it time to flourish and rejuvenate.
Rethink our consumption needs: After huge purchases, we find out that most of the products don’t make us as happy as we thought they would. In going about our life experiences, we should reconsider our consumption habits and also buy what we think is necessary and useful for the betterment of both our well-being and nature.
Reduce wastage: Spending our money on things we don’t need drains our wallets and destroys our environment because of waste accumulation. Only spending on what is needed saves the planet and keeps it environmentally friendly.
Furthermore, it contributes to a cleaner and more efficient environment since it establishes the need for meaningful production and distribution of manufactured products.
Reuse products: Reusing the products that we have already bought keeps them away from the landfill. We can buy used items from internet sites like E-bay, second-hand stores, garage sales, or otherwise donate the items that we don’t use.
Recycle materials: Recycling is one of the best solutions for landfill management. Materials such as plastics, cans, paper and glass can be recycled.
Today I decided I didn’t want to feel like this anymore, so never again. So, I changed. I had lots of excuses for not being able to change, but at the end of the day, they were excuses. Being able to change starts with: YOUR DECISION TO CHANGE.
Every little job becomes a dream, and you don't recall it anymore, and maybe you might have a Deja vu moment, but it's like something you dreamed earlier. Terrence Howard
Yesterday I posted GUESS WHAT'S FOR DINNER ❓ Did you guess what the dish was ❓ Well, are you ready for me to reveal it and give you the recipe❓ This is another plate that you can use the leftovers for another day and create a different dish.
BLOODY RED BUTTERNUT SQUASH CASSEROLE
INGREDIENTS: butternut squash, olive oil, brown rice, stewed fire roasted tomatoes, onions, peppers, mushrooms, spices and salmon or in my case sausage salmon from Misfits.
1. My homemade secret is to boil the butternut squash, this will later be easy to handle.
2. After the squash gets soft, remove it from the pot into a pan.
3. Boil some brown rice.
4. Chop the vegetables and scrape the seeds out of the butternut squash.
5. Chop the squash into small cubes.
6. Next in another pan, put some olive oil in with chopped cubes of butternut squash, onions, mushrooms and peppers, along with spices of your liking.
7. Cook the vegetable’s until lightly brown or until soft.
8. Once the rice is done add the stewed fire roasted tomatoes and left simmer.
9. Now, when both are done, add the rice and stewed tomatoes to the vegetable’s and add some more spice.
10. Let simmer, until all the juices mingle together.
11. This will be the final step, remove into an oven pan and cook until the top gets brown. I love to add fresh tomatoes on top, this adds color to the dish.
12. As this is almost done, take some olive oil and spices to a pan that you have already used and put the piece of salmon in.
13. Flop to both sides until it gets brown.
14. Remove and add both on a plate.
For the leftovers, OVERFLOWING ACORN SQUASH
INGREDIENTS: Leftover of the butternut squash casserole, an acorn squash.
1. Again, the secret to handling the squash with out stress, boil it in a pot first.
2. Once the acorn squash is soft, remove it from the pot and let it cool off.
3. Next, half it and scrape all the inside seeds out.
4. Add the leftover butternut squash casserole in the inside of the acorn squash and place it in an oven pan.
5. Cook until the top gets golden brown.
Yummy for leftovers.
Until tomorrow, “If we cannot end now our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity. For, in the final analysis, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's future. And we are all mortal. [Commencement Address at American University, June 10 1963]” ― John F. Kennedy
