We all Need An Eco Lifestyle Change

6. Commit to not wasting. Wasting resources costs the planet and your wallet. Don't overheat or overcool your home--a few degrees make a huge difference. Let your clothes hang dry instead of using the dryer. Take half the trips but stay twice as long. If your old cell phone works, consider not getting another. Repair instead of rebuy. The list goes on and on.

No Impact Man's Top Ten Eco-Lifestyle Changes is an amazing post which outlines an easily doable way to do our share to save the planet. I especially love reading this blog because it shows a daily account of the constant struggle and determination one can/must have to truly do his/her part. Thank you, Colin, for showing us the weay through example and a steadfast optimism of what we can do in our power to help out! Yes, we can people!

When you're in the checkout line getting ready to give in by allowing your ten grocery items to be packed into ten different plastic bags, consider this:

The number of marine mammals that die each year because of eating or being entangled in plastic bags is estimated to be around 100,000 in the North Pacific Ocean alone.

Between 500 billion and 1 trillion plastic bags are used worldwide each year. Between 60 and 100 million barrels of oil are required to make those plastic bags each year.

Say no to nukes!

The next few weeks will spell the difference between a nuclear disaster and a clean renewable energy future for Filipinos.

The pushers of nuclear energy in congress want to vote on moving forward with the revival of the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant (BNPP) before congress closes in the first week of June, with the foolish argument that the outdated and unsafe facility can address both climate change and energy security.

The truth is you can't solve one problem by creating another. If you believe that Nuclear Power is more of a hazard, please sign the petition at Personally,i believe that Nuclear power is not the solution. The key to energy security and climate change is Renewable Energy and energy efficiency. And the best thing about it is: we already have a renewable energy law - so we don't need to revive outdated technology like the BNPP! Let us think of renewable solutions instead of reviving a 30-year old, decommissioned plant.
