Welcome to The EcoChic blog! I felt that this would be an appropriate day to introduce my new blog; afterall it is the first day of Pollution Prevention Week. What is Pollution Prevention Week? Also known as P2 Week; it is a time each year where citizens, buisness and government agencies to show off their enviornmental initiatives and commit to new ones. So how does this relate to you? We all have the responsibility to protect and conserve our natural resources for future generations. I know, you may be thinking that you are only one person and how can you make a difference? I’m going to share common sense tips with you on how you can help. In honor of P2 week 2007; here are some simple things that you can do:
- Recycle your trash instead of just letting it go to the landfill or incinerator.
- Change your regular incandescent light bulbs with energy efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs).
- Walk, ride a bike, or take public transportation for short trips around town.
- Pledge to only use reusable materials such as coffee cups, plates, silverware and towels instead of disposable their disposable alternatives.
Keep visiting The EcoChic each day this week for more information on how to implement some of these small changes into your life.
