50 ways to Help the Planet

I wanted to post something in honor of Earth Day today, but I didn’t want to be preach-y, so I’ll just say that you should read Wire & Twine’s 50 Ways to Help the Planet. These are all probably things you’ve heard or known, but it can’t hurt to get a refresher course on what you can do to help. Since I’m moving into a new apartment I was thinking that I could get drying racks for my clothes, which would help the environment in a small way and save me 75 cents a pop.

I’d also suggest checking out NOTCOT’s insanely detailed list of reusable bags, if you can’t find a reusable bag you like there, you must be insane.

    Great list!

    It’s been driving me nuts lately seeing how one or two little items get mindlessly tossed into plastic bags like everywhere you go. It feels so much better to reuse a bag.

    Dishwashers??? Isn’t that just a contraption that comes with a new house and ends up being a second dish rack?

    My parents have been using fluorescent bulbs for ages but now I’m wondering how economical it really is… It’s kind fo weird how eco-friendly they are. They’re the last people I’d expect to be so into saving the planet.

    Can’t wait to see what wallpaper you have in store for us tomorrow.
