Bloggers Unite - Blog Action Day

Bloggers Unite - Blog Action Day
When I was in Tokyo, I was impressed by how super environmental friendly the Japanese are. At least for the saving paper part - they've got "water spray" in their toilet bowls to do the cleaning, they're using handkerchiefs instead of tissue papers to wipe of perspire.

Okay... maybe the toilet bowl with spraying waterjet is abit too much to expect in Singapore. After all, if it is really available here, only the rich people can afford...

But we can try save the tissue papers! Handkerchiefs are cheap and reuseable! And if you sweat like a cow, there is always hand towels! I know it's abit embarrassing to use these when nobody is using, but somebody has to start it right? If everybody see somebody using handkerchiefs, more will try, and finally and hopefully, everybody will use handkerchiefs!

i used to bring a handkerchief to school when i was in primary school, wiping the sweat after every soccer game. But as I grow up, my sweat glands get blocked and I don't perspire that much, so nowadays i hardly bring hanky or even tissue paper.

But then, should baby use reusable diapers?

when i was in japan, we had to separate the rubbish into two types: non-combustible (plastic) and combustible ones, and dump them on different days. It's tedious but i think it's a really good idea. I don't think this can be implemented in singapore though...coz the non-combustible ones would probably rot if we don't throw them every day...

Using a handkerchief is a good idea too=) Maybe i should start using one...

babies should definitely use reusable diapers! If people think it use more water, I think that's purely because the way we are used to washing things these days are overly wasteful. Besides, because disposable diapers are so convenient, people do not feel the pinch or realize how wasteful it actually is!
