Many eco-friendly products are made in earth friendly ways, or with
earth friendly materials.
A product may be produced from recycled
materials, for instance, or created using electricity produced
power rather than fossil fuels.
practical way to help the environment right now is to carry
your own tote bag to the supermarket. This will help eliminate
the estimated 100 billion plastic bags produced in the US
each year - which literally take centuries to fully decompose
in local landfills.
Along with the fact that plastic bags are one of many oil based products consuming billions of gallons of petroleum each year, it's easy to see why switching to eco-friendly totes is a good idea.
friendly products may also be substituted for less earth friendly
insecticides, for example, can replace more toxic, environmentally
damaging chemicals which taint food products and damage the
products may also be products which help reduce energy and
natural resource consumption. An intelligent heating system,
for instance, will turn the heat off in a house when residents
are at work, and heat the house back up before they get home,
saving huge amounts of energy by only using it when necessary.
trend among a growing green movement is the giving of eco-friendly
gifts for birthdays or around the holidays that promote
green living to the as-yet initiated.
