9. A laptop is more environment friendly than a desktop. It consumes five times less electricity.

10.An aluminum can that is thrown away will still be a can 500 years from now!

13. A ton of recycled paper equals or saves 17 trees in paper production.

14.A plant on your desk acts as a natural filter, absorbing airborne pollutants and computer radiation while replenishing oxygen levels.

15. Lawns only need watering once a week, post rain only after two weeks. Do watering early morning for minimal evaporation and water conservation.

16. Avoiding just 10 miles of driving every week would eliminate about 500 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions a year

17. Turn off the tap when brushing your teeth and soaping your hands. This can save around
