The Slate/TreeHugger Green Challenge, Week Seven

You’ve pledged to reduce your emissions when it comes to energy, clothing, food, and more; this week—the final segment in our seven-part series—we’re tackling that stack of papers on your desk and encouraging some greener spring cleaning. Did you know, for example, that the average office worker throws out about 150 pounds of paper every year? Take a memo, stat: It’s time to start recycling, getting off those junk mail lists, and powering down your computer at night. ::Green Challenge Home/Office ::Green Challenge Home/Office Quiz
