Earth Day Every Day

In honor of Earth Day, I would like to share three simple and easy suggestions on ways you can help the planet all year long.

CFL Bulb

Light bulbs!
Did you know if every U.S. household replaced just one light bulb with a Compact Fluorescent Light Bulb (CLF), that it would prevent the same amount of pollution equal to removing a million cars from the road? Not only that, but CFLs last longer than your typical incandescent bulbs (approximately 5-6 years), use less energy, and save you more money on your energy bill.

USDA OrganicGo Organic!
Organic foods are produced naturally, without man-made pesticides, fertilizers, or irradiation. Animals raised organically are free of antibiotics, they eat organic feed and have access to the outdoors. While organic farming decreases toxins in our environment, it also reduces the levels of pesticides in our bodies. Not only that, but studies have shown that organic foods tend to be higher in antioxidants. In my opinion, organic food just simply tastes better.

Publish and shop with!
Yes, it’s true! Print on demand (POD) is a far better way to reduce waste than that of the traditional publishing process. Instead of printing a large quantity of books that are hoped to sell, print on demand makes it easy to only print books as they are ordered! POD also reduces the energy usage associated with storing books in large warehouses and shipping them from the printer to the warehouse to the bookstore to the customer. This is just another reason why people who use Lulu are some of the brightest CFL bulbs in the bunch!

    Florescent bulbs are not all they are made out to be. If you look at the materials that go into them you will discover that they are not ECOfriendly. The mercury in the bulbs is considered a hazardous material. The life predictions are far exaggerated. My experience with these little bulbs is that they do not illuminate the area with the same vibrancy as an incandescent bulb. They cost a fortune more. I am not sold that they are so great.

    I like LuLu so far. Time will tell.
