Playgreen – tell the world how you live green by sylvng

Want to do a bit of good without viewing or clicking on any ads, or having to donate any money? Well how about contributing some of your knowledge?  Playgreen.org is building the biggest book on green living and invites you to take part by adding what you know to their wiki. They have some pretty cool articles – some teach you how to build a green computer and others tell you about local events that you can take part of, like going to have Green Drinks.

At home I try to do a bunch of green things, some that are normal and some that are not so usual. Normal things include using a programmable thermostat and drying clothes on a line instead of using the dryer. Not so normal things include saving styrofoam to recycle at the UofT campus, and placing a green bin specifically in our bathroom so tissues and other organics don’t end up in the garbage can.  I’m also placing plastic containers in my car so that if I ever do take-out I don’t end up getting styrofoam packages, but so far I’ve only done it once.  I keep forgetting to put the plastic containers back in the car to use again.

A quick search on styrofoam and clothes drying didn’t bring up any articles on playgreen, so it seems like they can still use a lot of input. So try it out and as usual let me know how you like it!
