Going Eco-Friendly

For years we've been abusing our planet. Plastics that aren't recyclable, oils that are poisonous to our waters and computers that are destroying our ozone layer. But it wasn't until recently that we began to notice just how seriously our misuse of products has cost us with the threat of global warming.

Now that global warning is upon us, we have to take our environment seriously. There’s no more pretending that everything will be okay because to be honest, it won’t. We already know that recycling our plastics, paper and glass containers will help, but what else can we do? How else can we make a difference? It’s not hard to make the right choices and now everywhere we look, more and more companies are making their products eco-friendly. Even technology products are going green. From Apple to Hewlett Packard to Canon, everyone is making a difference in the environment.

Recycling is easy, but how do you know what to look for when replacing the technology in your home or at the office. Simple. Do your research. Visit places like superwarehouse that offer a great selection of eco-friendly brands like, Apple, Canon and Hewlett Packard. You can replace everything from digital cameras to HP Desktops and even that cheap printer you’ve been meaning to upgrade.

If you’re worried about the expense, don’t be. Eco-friendly products are getting cheaper by the minute. I’m even thinking about going eco-friendly with a new notebook at least. It’s definitely time to replace this piece of junk. But for right now, I’m adding energy saving lights that are better for the environment to our light fixtures and reusing recyclable plastic bags to help our environment.

What about you? What ways are you help with our threat of global warming? Do you recycle products if possible? Have you bought eco-friendly products or made your home more eco-friendly? What about the office? Are you doing anything there? Does your company use eco-friendly technology or are they still using products that are in a serious need of an upgrade?

No matter where you are in life, there’s always something you can do to help with our environmental threat. Even if you can’t afford to purchase a new computer that is eco-friendly right now, you could always talk to your local library and see if they would be willing to upgrade their computers. Or you can recycle books, newspapers, magazines, etc. Everyone can do their part. No job is too small. Every little bit helps. We can fight global warming just like superwarehouse is doing. If they can do it, so can we. Lets not try or we'll see. Lets do it!
