fab friday: go green

some environmental-friendly approaches:

1. instead of receiving paper bills every month in the mail, make the switch to online billing. "By viewing and paying bills online, you reduce your consumption of paper (the use of which contribute to deforestation) and your contribution to global climate change (since fossil fuels are burned during mail delivery)." (National Geographics Green Guide, pg 118)

2. looking to buy a new tv? the most energy efficient flat screen tv is an LCD tv. plasma tvs use the most energy out of any type. plasma tvs use more than half of the energy that an LCD tv does.

3. buy a plant. they take in CO2 and let out oxygen. go buy one. now!

Great post. Short and sweet, yet informative.

Trying to get husband to get on board with #1. And holding out hope that my creeping fig, who's sitting next to the kitchen sink hanging on for dear life, is as helpful as #3 says.
