Anna Rock... Anishinabe Ponsford, MN Unplug America Stop using and think about what we're losing. Turn out the lights, shut off the taps, cut off your engines and celebrate your freedom from consumption. October 13th is a day to reflect on ways to achieve sustainability- a plan for taking what we need, giving back what we can, and leaving the rest to provide for generations to come. It's only one day out of the year but it's the first step towards restoring our land and resources. Just give it a try, and if you like it, try it again every month. Remember, she's your Mother Earth. So, give her a break. Consumption and the U.S. The United States is currently the largest energy market in the world and right behind Canada when it comes to per capita consumption. We've gotten used to turning on switches and electrifying everything. From toasters and microwaves, to blowdryers and VCR's, we've grown accustomed to using energy irresponsibly and in a way that destroys our environment. If we want to insure our own survival and that of future generations, we need to start today by thinking about ways to use less and use wisely. [...] Unplug! On October 13, we're going to unplug for a day and learn to live simply. Use as little as you can and think about what you consume. Where does your power come from? Your paper? Your gas? What are the alternatives? There's loads of solar, wind and conservation potential out there. Take a day off and think about it, the try it again next month. We need to take action and save our resources. Our peoples depend on it today and for the seven generations to come.
