Conscious Citizen Award

Conscious Citizen Award

goes to

Rebecca Bours of Las Vegas, Nevada

for making an effort

to raise the consciousness of people in her community

to the importance of recycling,

and for picking up other people’s recyclable trash

when she walks her dog,

and for extending that effort

to the global community 

by blogging about it!


Life is an amazing journey.

  1. Thanks so much. I’m sorry I have’nt been available due to a death in the family (my dad) I haven’t been blogging lately. I have, however, been continuing the effort and just got 4 familys on my street to convert! I put flyers in everyone’s mailbox (over 100). I wish I had gotten a better response, but at least 4 more familys are giving it a go. Thanks for the encouragement!

    Hey Rebecca, sorry to hear about your dad’s passing. It’s a tough time for the family. Great job on the consciousness raising with the flyers and good you’ve got more families involved in recycling. Keep up the good work – for the planet, in particular your neighbourhood.

  3. Thanks so much for the kind words. I really miss him; yesterday would have been his 82nd birthday. I bought a bottle of champaign and raised a glass to the heavens and toasted his memory. On the recycling front, I’ve been trying to get my work collegues to remember not to throw their plastics in the general trash. We have recycling set up at work, but I’m constantly picking bottles out of the regular trash. Basically I’m shaming them into doing the right thing…… sad!

      You’re doing the right thing Rebecca! You must have been close with your Dad. Maybe you could set up something in his memory. Did he share your passion for the environment and recycling? My dad always planted trees everywhere we lived. He left a trail of trees.

  • Supper on the Fly
    Meal planning is my weakness. I’m proud that I planned this meal far enough in advance to take the home made baked beans out of the freezer to defrost. Did that this morning.  Wanted them to add to yesterday’s left-overs:…Read more ›
  • Today’s Lunch
    Last minute choice! Salmon and chopped egg with garlic scapes and chives, piled on slices of crispy light and dark rye toast slathered with melted butter!! Yum yum. For the salmon spread mix together: 1 diced garlic scape with 1…Read more ›
  • Three Sisters Chili 
    This chilli was a big suprise! I’d never had a squash chili, though after reading recipes with squash and beans, and looking at mouth-watering pictures, I had to try it. The result is a slightly nutty, almost parmesan taste! Ingredients…Read more ›
