Being “green” is in. (Hurray for Kermit!) Pick up any magazine and at least two or three of the articles will offer extra tips on how to live green and do everyday tasks in a way the better affects the environment.
I have read so many of these tips in the last several months but not implemented any of them. Well, except maybe this one: Eat Your Leftovers.
Huge plots of land and countless resources are devoted to producing the ingredients that go into our various meals and snacks. For example, we’ve got 255 million chickens providing for our nation’s annual demand for eggs, and a geographic area the size of Wyoming growing our wheat.
Wasting food is about more than just wasting money—it’s also about wasting all the land resources that produce it. That doesn’t mean you should keep eating when you’re already full. Just save the leftovers and have them later. Save money and our resources. (Tip from The Green Guide)
