THINK ABOUT YOUR LIFESTYLE FOR JUST A SECOND.
Do you drive a car every single day?
Do you print both side of paper? (Click here for tips on saving paper)
Do you give out paper material to promote your business?
Do you have a website for your business?
Do you choose your own lightbulbs and appliances?
Do you control your thermostat?
This is where you start. We don't all live in cookie-cutter homes, and work in cubicles, but you can bet your life that there's a part everyone can play in the action that needs to be taken. So we say take public transit more often, but there's no system in your town? Then take it one bit further. Try carpooling. Ride a bike. Turn this stuff around so it applies to you. There are so many little things you can do to lessen your impact on the planet. Why not make that impact light and temporary? Everything you do has a direct and traceable repercussion, so get informed. There's no excuse.
