Ditch the junk
So many things are done electronically now, but have you ever realized how much junk mail is sent outevery day? What about that newspaper that just gets tossed? First, you can cancel certain memberships and stop receiving paper coupons and junk mail. And you can read the newspaper online instead of grabbing a paper copy. For the paper you do use, recycle it instead of tossing it in the trash. It takes a lot less energy to create paper products from recycled paper than it is to make it from scratch.
