We've got the "talk it, don't walk it" green attitude down, pat.
I've found my useful contribution. After much consideration, I've decided to stop mowing the grass so often.
Now, you might think this is because I'm lazy. This is, after all a truism. I am lazy. But that is not my impetus for this stance.
You could believe that I refuse to mow because I'm cheap. Gas is, after all, 4 smackers a gallon right now, and our mower uses an infernal combustion engine. But, alas, I'm not trading in the Scooby-Roo for a Prius, or even a SEPTA pass.
No, it's all about the carbon emissions. You see, grass is a producer. It's an autotroph. As such, it's an eater of the carbon dioxide. Shearing it minimizes its photosynthetic prowess! Therefore, it is wrong to cut it so often.
By NOT running the mower, I lower my CO2 emissions, and by letting the grass grow, I'm further reducing the CO2 load in my local atmosphere. Win Win.
I think this could be a new rallying cry: Save the polar bears: kill the Lawn Boy!
I never said I was good at slogans, but you get the drift. Now, come to come up with a catchy way
to say this so my neighbors don't lynch me!
