Energy hungry products to pitch

A long time ago, we ditched paying for over-priced water in plastic bottles for a BPA free container but do you know the other energy hungry products. Thanks to EcoSalon, we do now.

I'm sorry to admit, we violoate the other 4 on this list and this stat via the article about cardboard boxes is shocking and sad:
Making one ton of cardboard uses some 17 trees, 79 gallons of oil, 7,000 gallons of water and 42,00 kilowatts of energy.
YIKES.

Going green gradually is a learning process, but wow, that's a lot of energy.

  1. Don't forget that women's shelters like Saving Grace take donations of old cell phones. Reuse is always a greener option than recycle. :)
