Eco friendly living
Just wondering something randomly.
Do you do your bit for the environment and what are your motives? Do you do it because you want to "save the planet" or because it has some more direct benefit to you?
I turn things off and only boil the water I need etc…but only because it saves money.
In my car I try to drive economically but again only to save myself money.
I walk to the shops if they are local but only because it is good for me physically.
I recycle but mostly because the binmen only empty each of our 2 bins every other week so if we only used the general waste bin it would get full up.
So in truth, I guess I do a little bit, but only because it benefits me financially or practically. I rarely think "I'd better do/not do that because of the environment", it's always because there is some direct benefit to me.
Interested to hear what others say...
