Anything else you’re interested in is not going to happen if you can’t breathe the air and drink the water. Don’t sit this one out. Do something. You are, by accident of fate, alive at an absolutely critical moment in the history of our planet. – Carl Sagan

The power of one
It takes each of us to make a difference for all of us.
If everyone in the U.S. reused a paper grocery bag, even for just one shopping trip this year, we’d save millions of trees.
If everyone recycles just one additional plastic bottle this year we’d reduce this plastic in our landfills by 200 million pounds.
If each of us simply kept our tires properly inflated this year, nationwide gasoline use would drop by millions of barrels.
If every American home replaced just one old style light bulb with a compact fluorescent bulb, that would be like taking a million cars off the road for a year.
If every American paid his or her bills online instead of by mail, we’d save 16.5 million trees and eliminate the equivalent of 56,000 garbage trucks full of solid waste.
if each of us simply turned our water heaters down to 120 degrees F we would prevent millions of tons of CO2 emissions per year.
If each of us simply reduced our computer default margin to .75” on all sides of our documents, we would save 6 million trees and eliminate 1.5 billion pounds of greenhouse gases per year.
When you’re confronted with a problem, don’t get down—get excited, get involved. A problem is an opportunity to do something generous or positive for the world. – Heidi Wills
