Some folks love to portray environmentalists as loony, people-hating Luddites. But many of us simply aren't comfortable with wasting resources and leave a messy planet for our kids. Over at annatopia, anna thougfully suggests some simple ways people can sensibly reduce waste. I'll sum up a few of them:
- Use cloth napkins
- Turn off lights
- Recycle grocery bags
- Short showers
- Wash your clothes in cold water
The irony is, a lot of these things save money. In other words, conservation is, in many cases, in people's economic self-interest.
