This was a very hard Dare to do we thought! Not so much the "save the environment" part, there are many many ways to do that (see here for more information) - but the FUN and CREATIVE side of it.
Our staff was useless. Granted, they do all kinds of things to save the environment: recycle, plan errands so you don't have to drive again and again for every little bit (sorry, no public transportation where we live), turn the water off when brushing their teeth, wear warm clothes inside the house in the winter so they save on heating, bring their re-usable bags to the supermarket, blablablabla - BORING.
So Mrs. OZ came up with a creative concept. She says she saves the environment by pretty much staying indoors. How does that work, you might ask. And here comes the creative part: She says 'environment' = surrounding wildlife which she saves by not hunting it. That cat is twisted, I tell you! I am not sure if it counts, though....
Tintin claims he saves the environment by doing his "business" outside. It saves litter, therefore it saves in the manufacturing process as not that much litter has to be produced, it saves in cutting down on the packaging material and it saves gas in that the staff doesn't have to go and get it. He says it's not his fault that Mrs. OZ balances all that out by never using the great outdoors... I accepted it because he looks funny doing it, hahahahahahahahahaha.
That leaves me.
I do all my errands on paws (no emissions wasted)
I don't take showers or baths (no water wasted)
I sleep most of the day and all night (no energy wasted)
I recycle (no rat is ever wasted, I use them again and again. And again if the staff wouldn't interfere)
I use solar and wind energy (the former by heating myself up nicely in sunspots, the latter by getting totally energized when it is windy)
Oh my gosh - I am SOOOOO green!!!!
