Going Green with NPL

PrintPrint

Reduce Paper Waste

Pay your bills online and switch to paperless statements.

Register at www.catalogchoice.org and www.dmachoice.org to stop getting catalogs and junk mail you don’t want.

Think before printing. Set your printer default to double-sided and use Print Preview to print only the pages you need. Save files on your computer instead of printing them for your records.

Switch to cloth napkins, and reduce or eliminate your use of paper towels. Use sponges or washable cloths to clean up messes instead.

Go Green at the Grocer

Buy in bulk to reduce packaging waste.

Concentrated detergents save on plastics and water.

A carrot typically travels 1,838 miles to reach your table. Shop at your local farmer’s market in season, or check for signs in your grocery store indicating locally grown and made foods.

Buying organic produce helps reduce pesticides and groundwater contamination.

And of course, Bring Your Own Bag!
