Say NO to Cement.
Wow –pretty dramatic thought isn’t it ?
Each of us has things we deem important to be a part of. Green Mom’s Carnival to me is one of those things. A dynamic, diverse amazing group of woman chiming in together to say our piece about all things green
I’d say cement isn’t my thing.
But if I was like Lisa who lived right in a town where cement is made, I’d probably be tooting the anti-cement horn too.
Cement is a lot like plastic. It’s everywhere, pervasive as all heck used in everything we build.
Yet, we take it for granted until someone educates us or draws our attention.
A did you know awareness type of thing.
My awareneness was recently sharpened by the health harm Lisa and her town residents are experiencing.
I can’t and won’t claim expertise here. All I can say is cement production is an overwhelming alarming polluting mess.
With all things environmental what are our choices?
For the carnival I thought I’d share the story about one woman, Franke James, someone whom I admire tremendously –who fought the city of Toronto and won regarding laws that said her driveway must be cement.
I think it’s people like her who question the rules and act on them that make a difference on this planet!!
