Whether you are a novice or extremely active in the environmental movement, EarthMatters is an enjoyable, encouraging and educational experience. It is a place to share information and to recognize the challenges for improving our environment.
Think about this: The more products we buy, the more energy and resources are used for producing, transporting, marketing, and disposing of the products. This increases the greenhouse gases. Because of this, we are all contributing to both the landfills and the climate change of our world. How can we do anything about it? Consume as if you had to dispose of your trash in your own yard!
