Green Tip of The Day

Cut back on plastic. Americans throw out about 100 billion polyethylene plastic bags every year. According to the EPA, the processing and burning of petroleum (from which plastics are derived) is one of the main contributors to global warming. Keep a stash of reusable shopping bags handy so you always have some when you shop. As your plastic food containers wear out, recycle them and seek out replacements made of glass, ceramic, Pyrex, porcelain, bamboo, or high grade stainless steel.
