Waste not, want not

Let’s do it now: Recycle.
Watching the golf game on TV in beautiful California at Pebble Beach I marveled at the beauty of our beautiful and unique world.
Our world is not only beautiful but sustains all life, which of course includes us — the human race. We must keep it this way for future generations.
Let us all recycle and use less. Plastic can be melted down and reused in many ways; do not put it in the precious earth, where it will pollute and kill many living species.
Do we need all the paper products that come in our house? No, we don’t. This is a waste, many trees have to be cut down to make paper. I cannot believe how much paper comes to my house that is totally useless to me.
Do we need to go to the store five or six times a week? No, we don’t. This pollutes our air. Let us think before we get into our cars: cut down how much time you drive.
If you are going to the mall, talk to your neighbors — maybe you can carpool! If you take to three neighbors and ride together, that is only one car on the road as opposed to three. This is wonderful for the environment and the air we breathe.
Remember: Waste not, want not. New Jersey is already banishing plastic bags; we should follow suit.
