Smaller Fonts Save Trees – The Minus One Project

Green Prophet

Change your font size by one point and save trees…? . Sagar believes that this is a small step (hoho) towards conserving one of the world’s valuable resources: forests and saving paper. If lowering the font by one size means you can help save an average of 18% on paper, then this seems like a worthy movement. This software enables you to save up to 50% on ink and toner when printing by leaving small holes in the letter. A bit ridiculous?

Green Bites – Book Review

Green (Living) Review

Some of those that many fall victim to is the “using less paper saves trees” mantra. On the other hand this book is a goldmine of valuable information and food for thought and some parts should, most definitely, be required reading for our politicians such as the section on carbon capture where John so correctly points out that Nature has provided us with the perfect answer to capturing and storing carbon emissions, they are called trees and we just need to plant a lot more of them.

Documenting the value of paper

Green (Living) Review

Far too many people believe and repeat the mantra that going paperless or using less paper saves trees and especially the trees of the Rainforest but that is but a mantra and has little to nothing to do with the truth. When it comes to saving the tropical Rainforests reducing our use of paper will not make one single iota of a difference as tropical hardwoods are not used and cannot be used in the production of pulp for the making of paper.

Write more by hand

Green (Living) Review

Writing by hand, however, requires pencil or pen and paper and I know that there will be those that will scream that the use of paper is bad for the environment, as it is using “dead trees”, and they will claim that using electronic means saves trees and thus forests. In addition paper does not, necessarily, have any negative impact on forests as the majority of paper is produced from the wood of trees specifically grown for paper production.

Abby’s Blog: Kids Helping the Earth – Using Fallen Trees

Green Life Smart Life

This week a tree fell in our yard. It was a huge oak tree. My mom and dad walked around the tree and were trying to understand what happened and why; they also tried to figure out the clean up. So I suggested maybe we could make something from the tree. We had a local carpenter come look at the tree and he determined that it was an oak tree that was approximately 180 years old. It landed on the playset my parents got for my third birthday.

The myth of paperless

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Time and again misguided and misinformed environmentalists try too tell us that we should all ditch paper for digital and go paperless and they claim that that would save millions of trees and the rainforests. Most wood for paper pulp comes from softwoods, and this also includes, in many places one or two deciduous tree species, such as birch and poplar. If we would all stop using paper what would happen to those trees?

Is the High Street making a comeback?

Green (Living) Review

And e-books, in my opinion, are not an answer for the great majority and neither will they do anything to save trees and the Planet. by Michael Smith (Veshengro) We are being told by many that the High Street, or Main Street, as our American cousins call it, in its last throws.

Despite behemoths like Starbucks and Amazon, the number of independent bookstores, coffee shops, and other businesses appear to be growing and this is a good thing indeed.

Green products – marketing or real change in values and attitude?

According to German research consumers in that country in 2011 spent around 36 Billion Euros worth of “sustainable” products, around 14 Billion of that on products in the energy savings and energy efficient living sector.

Eco Friendly Daily

Now, it’s not only about a recycling program or promoting the use electronic documents to save trees, but also an acceptance of broader community based issues. Green is no longer for the environmental mavericks or the placard wielding barrackers. The cause of the green has been taken over by many big shots whose favorite retreat oft has been the bourses rather than the nature reserves. The era of corporate social responsibility dawns. Now, the acronym is out too – CSR.

To tree or not to tree, that is the question?

Green (Living) Review

Now that Christmas is only a few weeks away from us the annual question arises as to which tree is more “green”, the artificial one or the real one. It is the real one that is the most environmentally friendly Christmas tree. I know that there are people that will disagree and come up with the notion that they would save trees, real trees, by buying an artificial Christmas tree. We all love trees and so do I but then I would say that, wouldn't I.
