Green Girls!

Tuesday we spent some quality time with Girl Scouts in La Quinta, CA. With placid Lake Cahuilla as a backdrop we discussed how long litter might last if it were left there to decompose. These young ladies were quick to realize that in their community, a desert ecosystem, items last significantly longer than in an environment where more moisture is present. Learning to 'Trash Your Trash' is paramount everywhere, but in dry places even items like newspaper and toilet paper can last years!

Be intentional, not conventional.

What a beautiful area! What a surprise that trash decomposes slower in dry places! Tante Jan
