Many talk about their Carbon Foot Print, others go on about ecology and environmentalism, only to press harder on that gas pedal. Some soothe their sole by proudly anouncing their latest purchase of a Toyota Hybrid or other such status symbol. A campaign, long ago dropped by the media, advised that we all find one item a month to permanently become part of our daily lives. I'm not a tree hugger or environmental activist, but finding one thing to change in your life each and every month has become quite easy:
1) Last month: Installed new dual pane entrance sidelites in my front entryway.
2) This month: Installed mechanical timers on lights I tend to leave on.
Previous months: Use of environmentally friendly chemicals for washing. Install CFL and/or LED lighting throughout the home.
This thread is not a contest or a way to promote what a good environmentalist you've become. Rather who knows, maybe something posted here will stick in your life.....
