  • Millennials--It's Your World, We Just Live in It

    Hey Millennials, no pressure, but it’s pretty much up to you to save the planet! It’s a big job, but fortunately, you’re sharp and energetic—you’re up to the task, right?

    Here are some tips. Once your mom drops her phone one too many times, or your dad’s laptop won’t accept the newest operating system upgrade, be sure to recycle their electronics responsibly. Buy your hipster clothing at secondhand stores rather than paying top dollar for new imitations—you’ll be keeping textiles out of the landfill and preventing unnecessary pollution and energy use on new clothing production. And share your eco-tips on social media to increase your number of followers. Follow CalRecycle on Twitter and CalEPA on Instagram while you’re at it!

  • Happy Earth Day, Working Stiffs

    Some of us have great jobs—we get paid to protect the environment! Some of us might also have other types of great jobs, or not, but we wonder what we can do for Mother Earth while we’re working for the man.

    As part of CalRecycle’s Earth Day celebration, we’re offering the following tips for employees, including ordering a Recycling Starter Kit and reducing waste at work events. And when the weekend comes, be sure to participate in an Earth Day event near you.

Shopping for secondhand clothes makes sense, saves money, and isn’t any more difficult than shopping at a retail store. Packing an environmentally friendly lunch can save you money in the long run. Give these tips a try and see what you think!
