Sustainable Living

  • Reduce the junk. Itís easy to find the resource in your country to reduce junk mail. An online key word search is a good place to start. Try DMAConsumers.org, www.greendimes.com, http://www.catalogchoice.org/ or http://donotmail.org.
  • Cancel unwanted catalogs. Love browsing your favorite catalog? Consider browsing it online to save trees and energy used during production and mail delivery. Call or go on-line to request that your name be removed from catalog mailing lists. This quick change saves an average 150 pounds (70 kilograms) of CO2 per year.
  • Reducing your meat consumption will help reduce food-related land use that contributes to deforestation and water pollution. This small change can save an average of 1,000 pounds (450 kilograms) of CO2 annually
  • Consume locally.   Try to purchase at least 25 percent of your groceries from local or organic farmers. Visit a farmersí market or subscribe to a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program to receive fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables weekly.
