50 Ways to Help the Planet

I thought this was a pretty common-sense, practical list. It's neat to see ones you've already thought of (i.e. 13. Wrap Creatively (BOOYAH))!

50 Ways to Help the Planet

05.08.08: I was reading a copy of WIRED jess had gotten and it had an interesting article on the consumption of water around the world. What was particularly interesting was this chart in the article. Look at the amount of water required to produce several common items (2,866gal of water for a pair of jeans?!). I guess I've never put too much thought into the amount of water required to produce food/goods.

What a gorgeous picture!

I LOVE that you are a green-leaner.

Here's my favorite:
One less meat-based meal a week helps the planet and your diet. For example: It requires 2,500 gallons of water to produce one pound of beef. You will also also save some trees. For each hamburger that originated from animals raised on rainforest land, approximately 55 square feet of forest have been destroyed.

Guess Who? said...

I saw a special on the National Geographic Channel called "The Human Footprint". It said it took 250 gallons of water. I was shocked.

PS I commented on a non mac blog post. Yeah for me.
