Saving the planet around your home

Think Global, Act Local by Zakir Parpia, president of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties
"Think Global, Act Local" is one of the leading environmental messages of the 1990s. One of the most localized ways to save the planet is to use energy and natural resources in your home wisely. Here is a list of simple, everyday activities that you can do in the home to help make our earth a healthier and happy place.   Recycling doesn't just help our planet, it helps make the earth a prettier and healthier place by saving trees. You can help by taking your used books to the library, magazines and comic books to a hospital, and your bundled newspapers to a recycling center. If each of us recycled just one newspaper a week, we could save 25 billion trees every year.
