Something inside me has switched on (or maybe off). I have started using guerrilla tactics to make the world greener. I know it may be wrong. I know I'm not old enough to cry insanity. But I just can't stop myself.
Lately, when I have been invited into other peoples homes, I find myself unplugging appliances. Coffee makers, cell phones, fans, you name it. When the host isn't looking... POP. Out go the plugs.
In talking to friends and neighbors I have learned that the communication in our town is pretty sucky. Residents don't know what to recycle. No one is telling them how to do it. So in sweeps "Super Gruppie" (how can I make that name stick?). I have been posting flyers on public bulletin boards. What paper can be recycled, how to dispose of CFLs, when the hazardous waste days are. You get the idea.
My newest adventures in "guerrilla green" involves strategically placing green magazines. I have been leaving my pre-read magazines like Good, Mothering and occasionally a Kiwi in public places like the children's room at the library. While most of the mummy's in the library were reading People, Parenting and other fluff, they are beginning to pick-up some juicy reading that they may never have seen.
Can guerrilla greening change the world? I just may be too passive aggressive to ever know the answer.
I am officially throwing a new green term into the ring. Anyone else out there a guerrilla greener?
