Speaking of Green

This is not Meadows related (well maybe, if you think about all of our efforts related to trees) but, I heard about this website on which you can stop the delivery of catalogs that you don't wish to receive. It's estimated that the number of catalogs produced every year equals the carbon emissions of 200 million cars per year. That's HUGE!

With the holidays approaching, this is a great time to "trim the tree" and reduce the number of catalogs coming to your home. Here's the totally free website:

One more great, green idea: When printing documents on Word, Excel or any other software, change the default margins from 1" to at least .5". It will reduce the number of pages needed and contribute to a reduction in paper use.
