Green Flash: Earth Day To-Do List

Posted in: Lists


Ever since we saw An Inconvenient Truth we’ve been feeling a little environment-obsessed. So in honor of Earth Day yesterday, we’ve made a little to-do green list.

1. Upbraid socially irresponsible family members for their refusal to recycle. Check.

2. Support the Carbon Fund for Europe, which is partnering with the European Investment Bank to buy carbon credits for environmental projects in underdeveloped nations.

3. Offset carbon. See our previous post about carbon dioxide offsetting programs, or check out this Web site.

4. Ride Eurostar. They’ve just announced plans that by 2012 they will reduce emissions by 25 percent per passenger.
