On Sunday, May 10, I put out a call for my friends on twitter. I asked them to share their trash habits and what they do for the environment. Here are the results:
robotchampion: ive made a bigger effort to recycle all paper in my life, including carrying stuff around and from work to recycle bin at home
selil: i only have one computer for work and home thereby keeping my stuff in one place and removing need to print stuff.
selil: In a family of seven we combine loads of a laundry so every load is a full load. saves a ton of water.
kufflink: my wife washes ziplock freezer bags.
kmallwein: when the weather’s nice I dry clothes outside – nice fresh smell and saves electricity
robotchampion – I removed my trash can at work to see of I can reduce my output..it worked and now I’m trying it in my bedroom at home
blairDC: i use a 100% recyclable/reusable bag for groceries (it replaces 50 plastic bags!)
j3: Clean Currents 100% windpower for our house, only about 8% more than regular Pepco Coal.
kmallwein: Electric lawnmower dead (+10yrs old) – have to dig out the push mower that I just bought to go totally green
deyarrison: I only purchase products with recyclable packaging. I give Kleen Kanteens and tote bags as gifts to help others reduce too.
