    We love our planet, but we also love our pets, and things can get a little tricky at the pet supply store—the shelves are full of plastic toys and gadgets, not to mention the low-quality pet clothes that could quickly end up in the landfill. Here are a few tips to steer you toward a more sustainable lifestyle for you and your furry housemates. For more suggestions, see our blog on how to reduce your pet’s carbon paw-print, and check out our pattern for pet PJs you can make from scrap fabric.

  • 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!
