…Some t-shirts are good for change?


If you liked the idea behind Designgive’s Cause For Design, then check out GOOD Magazine’s list of additional t-shirt companies that help to make a difference.

Plus, having a t-shirt that is also a tool for change is definitely something that white people like.

…Paper and plastic are bad?

Paper Or Plastic?

Which do you choose?

If you’re trying to save the world, then your answer should be neither, as both come with downsides that negatively (and drastically) affect the environment.

To see exactly what each choice is doing to the environment, check out the The Washington Post’s comparison; because small changes are needed if we want to make a big difference.

…You should do something for Blog Action Day?

Blog Action DayToday is Blog Action Day, which means that fifteen thousand blogs with a combined total of twelve million readers are going to be publishing posts about the environment.

Since I’m always down to support a good cause, I’m going to participate by giving you DYH’s Simple Rule To Live By: Do Something.

Being green doesn’t have to be a life changing decision. You don’t need to sell your car and buy a Prius; you don’t need to sell your Prius and buy a bike; and you certainly don’t need to recycle your bike and start walking everywhere; you just need to do something.

That’s because I believe that if everyone did something, then everything would change.


Because even small changes can make a difference.

Change a few light bulbs. Take a shorter shower. Recycle more. Drive less.

There are a million different things that you can do, so you just need to start doing them.

The key is to start small.

Soon, that single bulb will turn into a home full of CFLs, that shorter shower will turn into thousands of gallons of saved water, and that parked car will turn into a healthier you.

So just remember: Don’t try to change the world by yourself; just do something, and the world will follow.
