Want to live an eco-friendly life?
Here's another terrific and terrifically simple way to make a contribution to the sustainable living movement
Best part - it doesn't cost anything!
Here's an excerpt, Changethemargins.com -
"As I was doing my usual margin-changin' thang while printing out a document for my boss, a light bulb went off in my brain. What if you could get people to adopt changing paper margins on a large scale? What if you could get companies to adopt narrower margins as their printing standard? It would result in a lot less paper consumption. Which of course means saving a lot of trees and cutting down on a lot of waste...but only if a massive amount of people changed their margins.
It's not a new idea. It's not complicated. But if we all did it, it just might work."
There's more information at the EPA site entitled, Federal Electronics Challenge. "The Federal Electronics Challenge (FEC) is a partnership program that encourages federal facilities and agencies to:
- Purchase greener electronics
- Reduce impacts of electronics during use
- Manage used electronics in an environmentally safe way"
Another great site I've discovered is the Environmental Paper Network. It offers loads of great information about paper, and features a Paper Calculator to translate sustainable choices into tangible benefits.
Kudos to Tamara for living by the idea that doing a little is more fulfilling than thinking that a little won't matter.
