The Pamela Positive: Don\’t Throw Out the Baby OR the Bathwater

Share This Post

The expression says, don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater.  I think we have to change our mindset completely…don’t throw out the baby…and don’t throw out the bathwater.  Both represent life.

Two million people are dying annually due to lack of clean water.  Most are children.

So if you find yourself with extra water at the bottom of a hot pot, or an unneeded glass of water…don\’t throw it out.  We can water our plants.  Or we can use it to scrub down the basin, clean the bathtub, scour the shower, or dampen a cloth when we’re wiping down the kitchen table.  Let’s not waste something that actually sustains other people’s lives.
