11th Hour

I just done watching this fantastic documentary which in my opinion is a good sequel to its equivalent The Inconvenient Truth. If you have not watched it, make sure you catch it on HBO in the next few days.

To summarize the entire documentary, a quote kept on coming on my mind. If you have been to enough church weddings you might have heard the quote that goes “Faith, Hope & Love, and the greatest of these is LOVE”. One of the last professors gave a very good summary of the entire documentary by mentioning what earth need most now is LOVE.

It simply means that we must start loving earth and not materialism. Each time we spend our money buying something, use LOVE to tap into our suffering earth to ensure we purchase what we truly need only.

As I am still very much inspired by this documentary, I thought of things to do in the rabbitry that could contribute to saving mother earth. The clearest message is to reduce, reuse and recycle. Here is the list based on these 3 headings:

1. Reduce

– neutering rabbits does help in keeping the number of rabbits on earth checked therefore, it does make some sense to neuter

– feed food that promote higher absorption so less poop produced?

2. Reuse

–  I am looking at making DIY compost. And to begin with, here are some links I found:

– using old newspaper to line bottom trays

– continue making DIY toys using Hay & toilet roll

I prefer to cut a narrow strip of toilet roll and stuff the hay in

3. Recycle

– use only recycled litter materials like BREEDER CELECT

– maybe try to make pillow out of all the fur shed during molting season?

With this good documentary, US has just taken the lead in being humble to admit that they are contributing to global warming. I take my hats off them for doing so but this is not any particular country’s problem. It is a global problem and that means each and everyone of us are responsible to do something about it.

I believe that leaders around the world must devise strategies. Strategies on the individual level and up to the community level at large. That means, we need strategies so we can make efforts on individual capacity as well as joint efforts by smaller communities right up to the country level and lastly, a global effort.

Let’s join hands in this for our future generation.
