DID YOU KNOW?
- BAG IT
Get reusable cloth bags for the grocery store and the dry cleaners. More than 100 Billion plastic bags are thrown away each year.
- STOP JUNK MAIL
Each year, 100 million trees are cut down for junk mail purposes alone! Contact the direct marketing association at http://www.dmachoice.org/ to remove your name from mailing lists of their members.
- SHUT DOWN
The average computer left on all day, uses nearly 1000 Kilowatt hours of electricity a year, producing more than a ton of carbon emissions. So, turn off your computer anytime you are not on it, and eliminate the screen saver function, which uses more energy than the sleep mode.
- A MUG OF YOUR OWN
Each year, Americans throw away 25 Billion polystyrene cups and 25 Billion individual water bottles. Buy a reusable to-go mug and a bottle you can refill with filtered tap water.
