The three best things you can do for the planet, no matter who you are and where you live.

1) Start a worm bin in order to covert a third of your waste stream into something that helps the planet.

2) Never, ever again use a disposable bag for carrying home something you purchase.

3) Walk or Bike somewhere everyday.

It is not hard to save the planet, commit to it now, never look back. Saving the environment is not about saving future generations. It is about saving ourselves.
