Eco-Legislation Matters

Posted on June 4, 2009 by Allie

Earthfirst has an amazing chart showing what our ozone layer would look like now and in the not-so-distant future if we hadn’t banned CFCs in the 80′s and 90′s.

Go take a look.

I know it’s really easy to feel like it’s hopeless, like maybe we can’t save the world from climate change or even make that big of a difference, but eco-legistation does matter.  Vote, write to your congresspeople, and major companies.  Support grassroots organizations.  Encourage those around you to do the same.  The decisions we make now have a huge impact on our future.

  2. This is one of the things I loved about Seattle, everyone was so on board with earth saving measures. Now I live in the middle of the country where some people still don’t know you can recycle glass or plastic.

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
