Save the Planet Saturday

How many of us give into the temptation and stop at fast food places? Unless you have phenomenal willpower, I suspect that most of us do from time to time. Did you know that you can practice a bit of helping out the planet, even when you dine at fast food joints? No? Well, you can in two simple ways.

1. If you're running through the drive through on your way home, tell them that you don't need those ketchup packets, nugget dunking sauces, extra napkins or plastic utensils. You've already got all of those things at home!

2. If you're dining in or on your way to someplace where those things aren't accessible, figure out just how many you do need and ask specifically for that amount. That way, you save all of those extras for the guy behind you in line, instead of for the landfill!

Quick and easy and even the "laziest" of going greeners can do this one!
