    "DHARAMSHALA, June 3, 2019: Exiled Tibetan leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama has written to Swedish teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg, expressing support and appreciation for her activism and work to raise awareness for the global climate change.

    "The octogenarian Tibetan leader who is a vocal advocate for global environment wrote, “It is very encouraging to see how you have inspired other young people to join you in speaking out. You are waking people up to the scientific consensus and the urgency to act on it.

    "I am also an ardent supporter of environmental protection. We humans are the only species with the power to destroy the earth as we know it. Yet, if we have the capacity to destroy the earth, so, too, do we have the capacity to protect it.”

    "The Dalai Lama also said that Thunberg’s work is “encouraging” in that she has opened the eyes of the world to the urgency to protect our planet and inspired so many youths to join this movement.

    "Greta Thunberg, 16, spearheaded the ‘school strike for climate’ movement in November 2018 after she carried out solitary protests outside the Swedish parliament in Stockholm. The consequent media coverage gathered momentum as kids around the globe, inspired by her work and her messages to global leaders, began joining the movement.

    "Thunberg is nominated for the Nobel peace Prize by the Norwegian parliament and has been featured on the Time magazine among the 100 most influential people in world in 2019.

    "The Swedish teenager known for her direct style of speech, at the House of Parliament in London back in May 23 said, 'We children are doing this to wake the adults up. We children are doing this for you to put your differences aside and start acting as you would in a crisis. We children are doing this because we want our hopes and dreams back.' "

    Thumbs up Greta Thunberg's Message to Capitalists: 'Act as if You Loved Your Children'

    Greta Thunberg's Message to Capitalists: 'Act as if You Loved Your Children'
    21 January 2020: World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland

    “Either you do this, or you’re going to have to explain to your children why you are giving up on the 1.5-degree target, giving up without even trying,” she said. “I am here to tell you that, unlike you, my generation will not give up without a fight.”

    Everyone - list some things you are doing!

    I am carrying a large handbag when I shop, so I don't need to use plastic bags, or I tell the clerk, "I don't need a bag for that." (Many of them say "Thank you!")
    I'm using mesh bags for veggies and "green bags" when I shop at the grocery store.
    I am taking my own spoons and straws when I go out for ice cream/fast food meals.
    I'm combining more trips so I don't have to use the car as much.
    I am taking my own mug and thermos to work to avoid having to use styrofoam cups for water or coffee.

    In my herp habits -
    I use Bamboee reuseable paper towels for cleaning (& used it also for substrate before I went bioactive).
    I do use plastic feeding cups, but have been using the same ones for the last 3 years - I just wash them and reuse. They do make feeding cups made of pressed cardboard now as well.

    Thanks for your idea, Eileen! Here's my list.


    • For the last 5+ years I've carried a metal spoon & fork in my backpack to use instead of plastic utensils. If I have company, I offer them the same.
    • I never buy water. I carry a 32 oz REI water bottle for beverages on-the-go.
    • If I buy some beverage, I choose aluminum containers over plastic.
    • Most foods I buy come in recyclable packaging like the shrink wrap Kentucky Legend sliced turkey comes in.
    • I recycle as much plastic "film" as I can at Safeway's.
    • I avoid purchasing most anything in "clamshells". Whereas the product says clamshells are recyclable, my local garbage collector says they're not (cheap plastic).
    • I skip using free ballpoint pens to keep them out of landfills. Instead I buy refills for the pens I already have (like Papermate ballpoint pens).
    • I skip using "freebie" shampoos & lotions from hotels/motels when I vacation. I bring my own shampoo. I use the soap again until it's gone.
    • I no longer use straws.
    • I request ceramic condiment containers in restaurants rather than plastic ones.
    • I'm "working on" laundry detergent-filled paper strips instead of laundry detergent that comes in large plastic jugs.

    I worry about microplastics -- that's tough!

    For my geckos
    • I bought multiple ceramic 2 oz portion cups years ago.
    • I re-use jar lids for dry insect diets.
    • I sometimes re-use container lids for small portions of Pangea.
