At lunch on Good Friday, my mother’s friend spoke about how her younger son’s school was going about teaching the kids about being environmentally friendly.
It’s all good to teach them the message, but this is apparently what happened in practice. The younger son had have a set of folders for class, and thinking that it would be a good lesson in practice in being environmentally friendly, my mother’s friend decided to use her older son’s old folders for her younger son to use – recycling and re-using – as you would if you were remotely environmentally friendly.
The younger son went to school proudly with his slightly worn set of folders and then, apparently copped an earful from his teacher for having “old folders”.
But it is Earth Hour this Saturday, and I’m gonna try to turn off everything in the house between 8pm – 9pm, and see how that turns out. Support Earth Hour by doing the same, and maybe get them to turn off the stupid vomiting Merlion.
