Super Bowl Carbon Negative? **gasp** and **swoon**

I’ve been casually reading Treehugger ever since watching An Inconvenient Truth, not because I’ve become a Eco-Fascist or anything like that, but just because they tend to have some really down-to-earth (har-har) and day-to-day sorts of things that I can do (and you can do!) to become more eco-friendly.

In addition, they spread the good word about larger and further-reaching eco-stories that provide inspiration (or desperation, depending on the story). Like this one:

Super Bowl XLI to Go Carbon Neutral

Now Boyfriend and I can sit on the couch come Game Day and feel just a tiny bit better about participating in what this article calls “a symbol of excess and over consumption”.

Can Casa de Guamaniac be far behind? Stay tuned.

    Our house is Carbon Neutral – we buy credits through CarbonFund.org.

    We found out last week that the Clean Air Council – a group that works on conservation issues in PA – is a CarbonFund partner: http://www.cleanair.org/Carbonfund/FinalCAC_CarbonfundPressrelease091806.pdf.

    It was less than $200 for us for the past year when I plugged in all our numbers.

    You can also sign up for PECO Wind Energy (another CAC project). You pay an extra 2.5 cents per kWh of electricity, but PECO gets it all from wind farms. It’s maybe an extra $20/month. I frequently forget all about it.

    I didn’t know about the CAC until last week, when I representative came knocking on doors. It’s worth checking out though – they do a lot of good.

Change a Lightbulb, change the world!

It only takes 18 seconds to change a bulb. If every American home replaced just one light bulb with an energy-efficient bulb, together we could save enough energy to light more than 2.6 million homes for a year. Find out how you can save energy and cash by making the switch to energy-efficient light bulbs... and check out how many have already sold in your area.
