and put a picture of yourself doing it on your blog!

We Dare You All to accept this challenge!

I , ASTA, am vewy awawe of the fwagility of ouw planet, and pledge to do all I can to help save the enviwonment!

I get out of the tub as soon as possible to consewve watew

I'll get Mommi and Daddi to switch to biodegwadable poopy bags(since this is a family owiented blog.I will not demonstwate)
we nevew buy bottled watew.. we bwing tap watew fwom home

I shawe glasses wif Mommi...........less cleanup

I always alewt Mommi that it's time fow me to pwewash plates

always use cloth napkins and weal plates..not the papew kind that you thwow away! and I even clean evewyone's fingews and toes, so they don't waste watew having to wash

Oh, and I play wif toys even aftew they splode...I don't thwow them away unless they awe totally disintegwating

Happy Consewving evewyone, smoochie kisses, love ASTA

Hi, Asta -

Wow, you sure know how to help our environment! We also use tap water and use the Brita filters.

Good for you, Kousin Asta. You are doing a fine job. I really like some of your suggestions, especially the ones about your prewashing the dishes and sharing the same glasses with Mommi. That is very considerate of you. I also like how you get out of the bath as soon as possible, thus saving even more water. (I do that, too.)

Great job, Asta!! You are really doing your part.

Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

I have got great inspiration from reading about what you did for conservation. From now on, I will eat anything that is off my mom's plate so we save water. I love the pic of you getting out of the bath! Hehehe..

Simba and Jazzi said...

Woah Asta! You're very good at conserving stuff huh? Well, I know I'm a good rubbish collector. I mean, I eat any scraps on the floor so that nothing is left wasted. Wait! Is that conserving?

Our pinkies are all for helping to save the environment. They hardly use the car anymore, only when they have to.
You sure are doing your bit to help Asta.

Dear Miss Asta,
What a good doggy you are! What wonderful ways to help our Mother Earth! We REALLY cut back on water as Roscoe and I NEVER took a bath in the tub. Well, Roscoe did ONCE but that was because he fell in to the human potty (but that is another story)!

Did you know that Rosccoe and I got our Dare done before he went to the bridge? We will get it posted tomorrow.

Thanks again to you all for your emails, phone call and for coming to the candle ceremony last night. You guys mean the world to us!

What great ideas!

Especially all the SHARING!


Gus said...

Oh yes, I am already doing all of that, except the biodegradable bags. When we have to buy bags, we order the biodegradable ones that some health food stores use. But most of the time we re-use grocery bags, because that also encourages muzzer and dad to eat more fruits and veggies.


The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Sweet Asta, we are in awe of your conservation efforts! You are so creative!!! We will endeavor to follow your advice. We do conserve water cause we bath ourselves!

Mommy says to tell George & Ami to have a lovely day!

Daisy said...

Asta, I am so proud of you for doing your part for the environment.

Harry said...

Looks like you're a true environmental campaigner there Asta, good work!

You are so environmentally conscious. The photo of you conserving bath water is one of my all-time FAVES! I have decided that we will have a moratorium on baths here in GooberSTan. You will take one ONLY IF you want one.

I am going to employ the environmentally friendly habits you mentioned that I have not yet tried... like prewashing all of the dishes and people. We're using the biodegradable bags and also bring tap water. We just don't do fancy around here.

Thank you for your shining example!

Goober love & smooches,

Molly the Airedale said...

What an awesome job you're doing for our environment, Asta!
We love pre-washing dishes too!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

The Furry Kids said...

Asta, those are very good tips. I will be sure to do the last three tips every day.

Your pal,

We can conserve water by not bathing that sounds like a real plan..

Oh Asta, I am far behind visiting..., I know!

Cleaning everyone's fingers and toes looks familiar, hahahahaha. Don't waste water and any food.
