Tips from the Calendar- August

Part 8 in a 2011 series of recycling tips courtesy of my dayplanner. Because trees deserve hugs too.

Tip of the Month: Buy locally grown produce and skip the frozen stuff. Frozen food uses 10 times more energy to produce.

Week 31: One rechargable battery can save the use of up to 1000 single-use alkaline batteries (*and recycle them properly please).

Week 32: Every ton of recycled office paper saves 380 gallons of oil. (*I once inherited an office with four filing cabinets. Upon examination I realized the person was skeptical of email and had printed, literally, THOUSANDS of emails. Don't be that guy.)

Week 33: Get a home energy audit. Find new ways to save money and CO2 emissions.

Week 34: Clean our your trunk. The less weight your car carries, the more efficient it is.
