  1. Granted the poor ignorant woman has a right to live whatever way she wants to, but should any taxpayer money be used to subsidize any education that teaches such nonsense, basically tricking that woman into wasting her time in frivolous pursuits?

    I think there was a time when pollution had gotten out of hand, but environmental engineers mostly fixed that problem. Therefore with very little work to do, it appears that they had to start making up work, for instance declaring "carbon" an environmental problem when the truth is that plants thrive on the atom, and can't live without it (i.e. more carbon = more green). We taxpayers have to take part of the blame for electing politicians who pass laws which support the education of such nonsense, or worse, pass legislation requiring us to copy her tomfoolery.

  2. This woman isn't criticising anyone else, why are people getting offended. Why so butthurt about what she does for herself?

  3. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess she's a Vegan as well.
    Maybe not, she didn't proclaim her Veganism less than 30 seconds into the vid & that's pretty much a mandatory thing.
    I mean why do it if you can't bore everybody you meet to tears about your eating habits or lack thereof?

  4. Honey, there's plenty of sand and space for land fills. It's the clean or potable water that you are wasting washing things that should be thrown away that is in short supply.

  5. Good for her if that's what she wants to do. Problems will start when she and those who think like her try to use the power of the state to coerce others to do as they do.

  6. Her quote at the end. "WOW! I'm so empowered". Translation. WOW! I'm so superior!

  7. I appreciate both ladies' insight. I do believe REDUCING is far better than recycling — a point I took from this video. I would like to know where Republic Services takes my recycled refuse? I'll do a little digging, no pun intended.

  8. This woman is a naive hypocrite! Just look at her kitchen. Everything there required a carbon footprint to make and all of it will eventually end up in a landfill someday. If she's using it, she's "trashing" it. I'll bet she drives a car too. All those things make up 4 of the "4.4 pounds" of trash the average American produces.

  9. there isn't infinite sand, sand is used in most modern construction sites and is a staple for modern building, and I know it seems stupid to say we running out of sand but there is a truth to it (desert sand etc is too fine so no we couldn't just mine the deserts)

  10. It's a detail but still, glass doesn't break down so making people put it in special bins makes sense.

  11. This is why you don't invite people on boats on your land and feed them, this land was painted in the blood of The American Indian who wanted to help the sickly European then their land was ruined after they were slaughtered by the thousands and forced into concentration camps

  12. Sad to see all the idiots in the comments, makes me mad too. Why wouldn't you want to take care of this Earth we've been given? God didn't say to destroy it! If a landfill was in your own backyard maybe then you'd care!
