An eco-friendly lifestyle is definitely not difficult or necessarily expensive. As the human population grows, resources per capita will continue to dwindle and a sustainable lifestyle may be the only way to insure that the needs of the every growing population are met. An easy way to save money and help reduce your impact on the environment is to follow the three R’s: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.


PRINT & PAPER
