reuse, recycle and
Who says you need to buy new stuff? Try FreeBox, Craigslist or bartering. Take action! Each of the changes below prevents one metric ton of CO2 from getting into the air (the math):
- Recycle or compost 586 lbs. (about 6 full cans) of garbage, rather than sending it to a landfill.
- Upgrade your lights. Converting 32 incandescent light bulbs to LEDs saves money over time, not to mention the climate.
- Why not plant a tree to mark the next special milestone? Planting and growing 24 tree seedlings for 10 years locks up a whole metric ton of CO2, and provides pleasant shade.
