Going green

"Going green" can be used by some companies as a PR campaign to hide other not-so-earth-friendly practices. However, some companies try to make a real change.

  • Conserve the resources you consume.
  • Reduce pollution, from soap down the drain to food packaging.
  • Conserve energy use.
  • Reduce consumption. Think twice before purchasing something. Think if you already have something similar you can use or consider buying used.
  • Reduce waste. Use items until you cannot use them anymore. This means fewer items end up in landfills, and there's less need to produce things.
