CarbonRally-Join the AZ Team

Posted by Peggy George on Oct 11, 2008 in Environment |

CarbonRally is a fantastic website that provides lots of timely information about very simple ways we can reduce the CO2 in our environment. You not only receive important information but you can make a personal commitment to accept any challenge of your choosing to make a difference. The latest challenge I have accepted is called “Paper Cut.” It taught me how I could (and should) reduce the amount of printing I do of online documents by 25%. This is a hard challenge for me but an important one.

This Challenge asks you reduce your use of paper for printing or photocopying by 25% for one month. It doesn’t matter how you do it. Don’t print anything at all for five work days this month. Print or copy on both sides of the paper whenever you can. Decide not to print emails unless absolutely necessary. Proofread your papers on the computer and not on paper. By cutting back on your use of paper, you will reduce your CO2 emissions by 7.6 lbs for the month. This Challenge lasts for one month and is repeatable.

If you’d like to join me in taking on some of these challenges, please consider joining the AZ Team.
