Green is Universal

What’s your carbon footprint?  When I checked mine, I was astounded at how large it was– 5 cubic feet more than the average.  And I consider myself a pretty faithful recycler, et al.  Check your own, and check the ways in which you can reduce it.  Off the bat I’ll tell you– compact flourescent light bulbs.
