I’ve received some great comments that I’d like to share with you. A big “thank you” to the following people for their thoughts and suggestions:
I think you have the right idea. As a society we waste so much......how long can we go on wasting like there is no limit? The time has come to take responsibility for our actions.

During the hot summer months, when the heat is unbearable … try taking some ice and placing it in a small towel. Wrap the towel, and put it around the back of your neck. It will cool you off considerably.

Another way to get extra life from your sponge is to microwave it. This supposedly reduces germs and bacteria. Make sure that the sponge is very wet before nuking it in the micro. And for those very environmentally friendly persons that do not have a microwave, you can soak the sponge in an old bowl with bleach and hot water to remove that unwanted smell of mildew. Make sure to let it air dry after disinfecting.

If you use a dish pan to wash or rinse your dishes, try using a smaller one. You'll get the job done with less water.
