Tip of the Week: Packaging!

When you buy something do you think how much packaging it has.  For instance look at the picture (left), those are dish washing pellets.  Each one is one run of the dish washer and they each have their own thing of packaging.  When you go to the store and you are buying something that has different choices try to choose the one with the least packaging possible because packaging increases the carbon footprint  even when the packaging is recyclable it takes energy to make it and recycle it again

Tip of the Week:Less then a mile? Walk in style

If you are going to somewhere less than a mile from your house, then walk!
Pollution in Beijing.
  In the U.S. 90% of trips under two miles are traveled by car.  If one out of 10 people switched to an alternative form of transportation, CO2 emissions would drop by 25.4 million tons per year. (Source: Piedmont Environmental Alliance)
