Well, I suppose it’s actually more like coloring your grey hair.
But it’s still way better because it saves so much water.
With 100% organic green paint!
(Even longer-term solutions can be found here: 24 Inspiring Lawn-Free Yards.)
Seriously: between not wasting 30% of the water-guzzling foods we grow (Friday’s post) . . . and not watering lawns (my neighbor has an astroturf croquet field; buy your astroturf lawn recycled) . . . we could really make a dent in this thing. (And save all that mowing.)
Should water consumption — above basic per capita needs — be heavily taxed, with all that tax revenue going to reduce property taxes? So the overall tax burden would be about the same, but shifted especially onto people who waste water, to give everyone an incentive not to?
Quote of the Day
You see those charts that say if you put away $500 a year starting at age 20, by the time you're 50 you'd have a gazillion dollars. It just makes you ill that you didn't do it. You almost want to grab young people and shake 'em and say, 'Please don't make the same mistake I did. Please.'~James Carville
