MINIMISING MY CARBON FOOTPRINT
Found in the shed:
a big box of shoes I didn’t remember.
They are dirty, covered in cobwebs and – even worse –
have been chewed by rodents.
Those innards coming out definitely have rat-sized teeth-marks around them.
Who’s going to want to wear them now?
Clearly not the people who put them in the shed in the first place!
Even more clearly, nobody else!
Luckily I have recently learned about
and shoe recycling which diverts such items from
for creating playgrounds and weaving textiles …
which means I can use my trash for treasure,
thereby reducing my carbon footprint
walking more lightly on the Earth.

Notes from the author:
1. Hopefully the reader will have realised that the “Free to Good Home” sign was not put up for the derelict shoes! Many moons ago our lemon tree was highly productive, so we placed the box outside our house so that passersby could indeed “share our bounty”.
2. May the shed clear-out continue to continue!
