Now it’s got me thinking… 2 weeks ago I ripped up a heap of lawn and brickpaved a big area…composted the lawn, got all the bricks from next door, they are putting in a pool and had exact same bricks…love free stuff! All to save some water and have less chemical sucking lawn.
So it’s all about saving money – right? No, wrong.
Sometimes I get mixed up between living economically and living sustainably. Sadly the 2 are not always the same.
It does cost to save the planet.
For example. My water tank is a 4500L tank. Big guy!
Because our government fails to put a significant dollar value on water, most of us fail to think of it as valuable. I suggest we should at least quadruple the cost of water!! Ok, maybe treble.
The 4500L of water is worth just $4.00 yes FOUR DOLLARS.
We would be idiots spending $1200.00 on a tank (getting all of $50.00 rebate!) just to save $4.00 a tank. Nope it’s the water we are wanting to save, not the money…any ideas on how we can save some money? Aghhhh
