World Environment Day: Viewing Now & The Future & Eco-Friendly Effective Cleaners

Thank heaven I have great calendars that tell me about all the holidays all over the world.  I didn’t realize tomorrow is World Environment Day until looking at my cool weekly planner I bought from one of my favorite places in the world, Barnes & Noble.

To describe how much caring about the environment means to me, I would simply say that we need to take care of what matters to us- that includes people firstly, and topics that affect us all like the future of the world, our children and our environment, otherwise known as our home.

You need to look at the World Through New Eyes.

 Think about the world not just in the present tense- the Here and Now- but stop and contemplate what our actions are doing to the world we live in. 

That’s where that word environment comes into the picture.

Every action has a chain reaction in life. 

What are your actions doing to try and help ensure that the world will still be here intact in 50 years, for people you and I will never even know. That’s not the point though.

This week I created a whole bunch of eco-friendly house cleaners, that amazingly work better than their chemical counterparts. I got the recipes from Mother Earth News, which I would recommend to anybody anywhere. The information contained within it’s pages far supersedes what you pay for the magazine.

Mother Earth Magazine has information about homeopathic remedies, and things that apply to almost anyone can benefit from reading it.

I was just reading Mother Earth Living early in the morning while savoring my coffee. …

As this article continues on,  I will share some of the recipes that I created to clean my house. I am still astounded how effective they are and cheap to make. Probably every ingredient to make them are in your kitchen right now.  

You’ll be rewarded a with clean house and feel gratified knowing but you just made a difference and what goes in our water system.

Do it yourself floor and all purpose cleaner

1 cup boiling water

1/4 cup borax

1 cup white vinegar

10 drops essential oil of your choice to give a nice scent

Simply bring to a boil, then add the borax and dissolve completely period and white vinegar and essential oil to mixture place in a 16 ounce spray bottle.

Becky Rapinchuk is the owner of Clean Mama, LLC and CleanMama.Net, and the author of Simply Clean 2017 and The Organically Clean Home 2014. This is her recipe.

Do it yourself shower cleaner recipe is from Leslie Reichert, who is a green cleaning Coach working to change the world one spray bottle at a time, as Mother Earth Living says.

1 cup white vinegar

1 cup rubbing alcohol

It drops tea tree oil

8 drops essential oil of your choice for scent.

Combine the ingredients and pour into a spray bottle and then spray walls and floor of your shower after each use. I found it really cleans the bathtub really well too and all the stainless steel, better than any cleanser I’ve ever seen! I bought a back scrubber that I didn’t really like that has a really long handle on it. I use it to scrub my shower with and my bathroom and it saves my back a lot cuz I don’t have to been quite so much. It works far better as a bathroom cleaner than it did a back scrubber! Haha

As Emerson said so beautifully, let us all “live in the sunshine, swim the Sea, drink the wild air!”

 I will add to his words, ” for a very long time to come.”

Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate

Http://www.TotallyInspiredMind.com

  

I was trying to put into words the term for when you do something just because it is right but not because it EASY or THE STATUS QUO.  A fellow writer and blogger friend of mine called it “moral courage” the other day.

We are all connected on this big, water covered planet we call earth. There is only one of them, so if we mess it up or the people who inhabit it, we never have a chance to go back and fix it. Life on earth as we know it is a “one shot deal” so we better get it right the first time and quit living as though everything is expendable.

We have a throwaway society anymore and people and the apathy towards people in general has gone along with the trash we throw away. It shouldn’t be and I am not saying that all people are apathetic, because of course they are not. There are just many who could do far more than they do for others they meet in everyday life.

Once the water systems are polluted, what do we do?

image

Just these thoughts are good ones to ponder in terms of how we should be making sure there are no oil spills killing our fish and wildlife and ruining the water.

image

Human beings have a lot in common with the earth in that they are both mostly composed of water. Without it, all life ceases to be.

What about bombs and the warfare, chemical or otherwise? Since I was married to a rocket scientist and he was the master of logic and science; since we were married for fifteen years, I chose to take with me the best of what I learned and the best of our memories together. Why throw a bomb that will kill thousands of innocent women, children, and ruin the land around it, making it impossible to plant anything-just to wipe out that one “target”? It isn’t logical to me.

Why not find and train more people who speak the languages of the countries we are fighting right now, or at least have our military people in like Afghanistan and Syria?

Try something you haven’t tried before.

Success models are made up of prototypes that worked. Once you know the model, you can strive to create one that works as well or supersedes it.

How about our budget that the so-called great leaders in the United States of America have concocted?

Above wallpaper image from Zedge.

There has not been any trace of anyone from the two Bush’s to Reagan who has ever tried to come up with a budget that would start paying off the debt already incurred. Obama keeps spending and China owns more of America. It’s like a dirty American secret that nobody wants to take accountability for. 

Will our next president of the United States make sure the priorities are in the right places? I certainly hope so, but rather than seeing human beings who invented great leadership skills, I see Trump as an overgrown brat who tragically never grew up. I see Clinton with major trust issues going in the office, after breaching national securiy. Wish you did with a lot more than just sharing emails! People lost lives because of those emails and that cannot be overstated.

 I haven’t sat through one debate becauase it is not one by true definition.  A debate is where people are asked intelligent, hard-hitting questions and they answer them , and an intelligent  fashion .  Trump  and Clinton are good at insulting each other and name calling and badgering. I had little tolerance for badgering in elementary school and I have absolutely zero tolerance for that kind of behavior now.

Is there some kind of moral conduct and we can demand that of our presidential candidates?
It’s almost as though you need a referee make in a boxing match.

 

‘ve never seen a time in our political history where we’ve needed in an actual referee like it’s a boxing match verses to great minds talking about what they would each do. We never had that in the election from the get-go

I am not sure what kind of actual good they can accomplish, since they are not showing the best of who they are when that is exactly what they should be doing!

This is idiocy and being that I was born and raised in The United States and never want to see the day when China owns America.

What is going on is a vicious cycle of stupidity, borrowing on China’s credit and we are looking the fool in the eyes of other countries.

Before I get on a this one topic alone, that infuriates me at the stupidity and complete lack of responsibility on the parts of all who work for the government for not prioritizing paying the debt of the USA.

I hope I see the day when a budget is created and adhered to. I hope I see the day when we have a new president who has one known social security number, and stands for things that benefit Americans instead of big businesses.

I hope I see the day when you can get a job in America without having to know Vietnamese or Spanish, when it is America you are trying to get the job and not Vietnam or Mexico.

I hope I see the day when people try to be more kind and tolerant of each other’s differences.
Movie makers, producers and directors put positive and empowering messages out there instead coming up with a crime show give goofballs and psychos ideas to blow things up and kill people in movie theaters. Values can and could dictate our society, if we all wanted that badly enough.

I hope I see the day when our president realizes that every action has a chain reaction be it a bomb, something that is not needed that tax payer’s end up paying for. China is buying more of America up every day as the imaginary credit card is used.

They print up so much “play money” that I don’t think they understand in the real world, for you and I and everyone else, we all have to pay our debts. Why isn’t the White House and those who write the checks accountable as we are?

Breaking laws to fit personal agendas doesn’t make me proud of the current leadership. Can’t we as Americans demand to see how the money is spent? They are working for the American people and are supposed to be our ambassadors.

image

What are your major concerns for our country? What would you like to see happen in the next year in America?

Please Mr. President Obama, well you’re still president- open your eyes, wake up and be accountable for what you spend regarding our country.

Students arming Syrian terrorist and creating Isis why don’t you look at all the veterans who have no homes?

What did you think of raising the cost of living index for all people who are disabled on SSI and SSDI?

Why don’t you see that every American in every state can live in dignity and peace and have all their Corporal needs met before you think of taking money we don’t have and giving it to other countries?
NOW is a good time to create and adhere to a workable budget, not just hype.

Start caring and acting responsibly and care about America being owned my Americans and how we take care of it now is the gift we will hand down to our children.
