Here are a few tips:
Print your manuscript (for revisions) on the backside of previously printed paper. And when you do need paper, try to purchase recycled paper with a high post-consumer content & minimum chlorine bleaching (envelopes too)
Drink tea while you write? Opt for the pillow-style, natural fiber tea bags. Why? By eliminating the strings, tags, staples, & individual wrappers, these tea bags save more than 3.5 million pounds of waste from entering the landfills each year
Submit your work via email whenever possible. Even if a rejection comes, at least you can feel good about saving a tree!
Set computers to energy-saving settings and shut it off when you're not using it.If each of us were to make just one change, the impact would be amazing. Do you have any good tips to share?
