Peek into this diary of a plastic bottle as it goes on a journey from the refinery plant to the manufacturing line, to the store shelf, to a garbage can, and finally to a recycling plant where it emerges into its new life…as a fleece jacket!

Earth Day is April 22, 2011. Here are a few tips that you can do every day from Little Green Books:
Print it twice. Don’t throw away paper you’ve printed off from the computer. Turn it over and put it back in the printer’s paper tray. Now you can print on the other side.
Fold it up. Fold up a reusable lightweight bag and take it with you to the store, library, school, or wherever you might need a bag. This way you won’t have to use a plastic bag to carry your things
Let the sunshine in. Before turning on a light, open blinds and drapes to let in sunlight from the windows. Use natural light instead of electricity as much as possible.
