Reduce Waste, Save Energy, and Renew Your Domain on Earth Day
Our environment is an important attribute to sustaining an enjoyable atmosphere within local communities. Each year, we Americans generate millions of tons of waste, which ultimately results in harmful gas emissions such as carbon dioxide and methane. In honor of Earth Day, you may be wondering what exactly you can do to make a difference in your community and overall improve the environment. Although planting a tree sounds like an amazing contribution to today's celebration- most of us are probably stuck behind a desk for the next eights hours and might not even see the the light of day until tomorrow morning. Take action this Earth Day and educate yourself on how you can reduce waste, how to properly dispose of it, and become more energy efficient within your home.
1. Recycle Responsibly with e-Stewards.org
Electronic waste can be hazardous and dangerous if not disposed properly. Most people aren't aware that 80% of discarded electronics poison people in developing countries due to irresponsible recycling. More importantly, the explosive growth of technology makes E-Waste a potential crisis for our environment if people continue to ignore the issue. E-Stewards are recyclers who have been qualified under the Basel Action Network’s pledge program, and agree to operate under strict environmental controls, follow worker safety protections, and to not export toxic e-waste to developing countries. If you or someone you know is looking for a safe and environmental friendly place to recycle their electronic goods, check out the nearest e-Stewards recycling center in your area.
2. Save Trees with StopTheJunkMail.com
Give your mailbox a makeover and stop unwanted junk mail. StopTheJunkMail.com gives you the option to opt out of catalogs, coupons, credit card offers, phone books, circulars and more. Many companies you know or have previously done business with may have sold your information to another company looking to market to you which essentially creates a mailbox full of wasted of paper. So instead of ignoring the 41 pounds of junk mail sent to every adult citizen each year, do something about it this Earth Day. Help keep forest trees alive, reduce greenhouse emissions, and save precious time reading unnecessary mail today.
3. Efficiently use Energy with WattzOn.com
