Blank yellow haze chased the blue skies away
Stick your head out the window.
What do you see?
Gleaming towers far away?
Towering green trees?
Or just a blanket of yellow haze,
That hangs lower when the heat comes,
Suffocating everything in smoke,
Beijing was bad,
Now its here in Vancouver,
Chasing the blue to Paradise
Fires burning, no joke.
Don’t smoke in trails.
Please prevent fires,
Hundreds are displaced.
I have a dilemma,
A sturdy problem that works two ways,
The result is the same,
Whichever I choose,
It just narrows down to my morales,
Because S’well won’t keep them,
Like Klean Kanteen does.
To B certified or not to B certified?
A B corporation logo ensures its environmental sound,
Made responsibly, yet sustainably,
S’well has no logo,
No hope that their bottles were made,
Ethically and sustainably,
With non-toxic finishes.
Trash, trash, trash,
It’s filling up dumpsters,
Piles and incinerators,
Discarded Starbucks cups with the lids,
The lids are recyclable!
Throw them in the blue bin and save some waste,
Fish and mammals are choking up plastic,
The microbeads might end up in sushi,
Luckily, minmizing this horror is easy enough,
Use a reusable water-bottles or travel mugs,
Ask for a mug at Starbucks,
Bring a bag to shop,
Land of Freedom and the constant fear of American dominance,
Home of Justin Trudeau, our Prime Minister,
Producer of Swedish Fish and maple syrup,
Where we all live in igloos,
There’s a lot to protect, a lot to love,
A lot to fight for in this age,
Donald Trump-perhaps or not,
Evironment and First Nations’ lands,
It’s there and there’s no turning back,
Greenpeace has asked in hope to raise $ 55,000 by the end of December,
Even though, who knows?
Is they’re data biased or really true?
I support them in their cause, but please be careful with the data,
I know it’s hard.
The gift that gave twice,
I gave to someone close to me,
A simple Lush Knot Wrap,
Made from recycled bottles,
That had a few uses too,
A scarf, Lunch bag and head wrap,
Bandanna, dishcloth and a bandage too,
It certainly gave two gifts in one!
Find them and give them right now!
It’s not so far away,
Close the tap when you brush your teeth,
Use palm-oil free soap and shampoo,
Take one shower less each week,
It will save water and your wallet,
Even your hair!
Little tricks and tiny tips,
Will save money,
And animals too,
It’s not that hard!
Food and personal stuff,
Brands like Patagonia,
Nike, Lululemon and Armour Vert,
Help your skin breath in style,
Brands like Lush,
The Body Shop, Burt’s Bees, Green Beaver and Rocky Mountain Soap,
Will hep you lather up naturally,
Easy as pie.
If there’s pie.
Something Organic and wild.
