Where do you want to go?

As we approach Christmas, we know that a new year is just around the corner. Why not make some truly green resolutions for 2010? Have you considered where you consume all your day to day news? There's something undeniably special about unfolding the newspaper over your morning coffee and taking in the headlines. However, the environmental impact of printing that newspaper and delivering it to your door is immense. Newspapers contain more recycled fiber than ever before, but making the paper for them still consumes a frightening 12 million tons of wood and emits 20 million tons of CO2 each year. You can get the exact same news online at a tiny fraction of the impact. Printed newspaper circulation has been declining for five years, and now most major newspapers offer online subscriptions. The New York Times even offers free online access to all of its content! If you cannot bear to miss out on your Sunday papers, why not change the way your purchase your guilty pleasure? Walk to the newsstand to pick it up! Its social, good exercise and it?s far more efficient than having it delivered. Also, be honest with yourself and consider how much of the paper you actually read. Do you really NEED all the paper? Show you care by going paperless and get your news online! You won?t get ink on your fingers either!
