World Wildlife Fund (WWF): Let’s do our part

A chance encounter

Awhile back, a young woman jumped in my path as I was headed for a meeting at a local mall. She looked at me straight in the eye, smiled, and extended her hand.

The next thing I knew, I was whisked to a table in the corner and (among other things) asked this question, “What am I doing to save our environment?”

Good question.

Doing my part

When it comes to the environment, I am quite ashamed to say that I haven’t given it as much thought as I should have.

But looking over the card that was given to me that evening, I guess I have done some good…in my own little way of course.

For instance, 1) I believe that a number of our bulbs at home are CFLs or LEDs, 2) we carry a number of power strips at home (thanks to mom), 3) I am a big believer in maximizing a number of household and office items (sometimes to a fault), and 4) I do love my Mac Book Pro which the card says “consumes 5x less electricity.”

Good times!

With that said, I am dedicating this point to Mother Earth.

It is also my sincerest hope that the people who come across my site in search of the latest news on NBA players that were born in the 1970′s, the Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo, or the latest news on the Psychology Bill, etc. would pause and think…

“What are you doing for the planet?”

Here is what was printed on the back of the card:

Make a difference with these simple steps.

Replace incandescent bulbs with CFLs or LEDs: These last 8 to 10 times longer and use 25% of the power.

Use a dipper instead of showering: Save as much as 30 liters of water.

Use a power strip: This eliminates phantom drain, which still consumes 10% to 60% of full power.

Reuse, reduce, recycle: Maximize usage of all household and office items.

Love your laptop: Use a laptop instead of a desktop. Laptops consume 5x less electricity.

Green homes: Open the windows for light and air circulations.

Buy energy-efficient appliances: Energy star appliances save power and reduce your bills.

Patronize local businesses: These have far smaller footprints than imported goods.

Buy locally-sourced items, including food: These allow indigenous businesses to thrive.

The less packaging, the better: Use totes instead of plastic bags.
