  1. Recycle, reduce, reuse. It makes a world of difference
  2. Carry a tote bag. Plastic is out...canvas is in

  6. Wash clothing in cold water...and hang them to dry

  9. Consider a wireless e-reader or ipad tablet...the trees will thank you!
  10. Consider a laptop...they take much less energy than a desktop
