Ruthie’s main interest is the environment. She is obsessed with waste and counts the amount of plastic she buys, composts and reuses all grey water. A complete sap for rescue animals of any kind, she visits the pound way too often. Ruthie has 3 pound dogs of her own and is a sucker for animal rights groups and saving the seals in the over polluted oceans. She is often told to lighten up about the environment, but find it a difficult task given that we need to give the earth that we borrowed back to our children.
