15 ways to live a little greener!

February 14, 2012

One of my New Year's resolutions was to stay dedicated to  environmentally friendly choices and find more ways to implement them into my life. Some of the best ways to to this really are pretty simple.

The Daily Green, a website devoted to all things "green", posted a list of "15 Resolutions for a Greener New Year" (http://www.thedailygreen.com/environmental-news/latest/green-new-years-r...)

Some that I found the most interesting were as follows,

#4 Stop receiving unwanted catalogs--You can go to catalogchoice.com and take your name off of the catalog spam list. This means less clutter in your mailbox, less waste, and less going to our landfills.

#11 Run a fully-loaded dishwasher--When it's time to do the dishes wait until the dishwashers full! Also not pre-rinsing the dishes helps too. Altogether you can save up to a third of the water.

#12 Give up dry cleaning--I didn't even think about it, but dry cleaning is done with... chemicals! They're weird, cancer causing ones at that, stay away!

Check out the rest of the tips at http://www.thedailygreen.com/environmental-news/latest/green-new-years-r...

Also do you have any tips that aren't listed? What are some outside-of-the-box ways to live a little greener?

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
