Easy Earth-Friendly Tips

The Martha Stewart Show, April 2007

Martha's staff shared these earth-friendly tips that you can implement in your daily life to help preserve the environment.

Jackie, Audience Coordinator
Working in TV, I find that we're constantly throwing away old drafts of scripts. So I take those scripts, cut them in half, and use them as scrap paper. You can do the same thing with junk mail. Simply cut out the part of the envelope that has no writing on it and use it as scrap paper.

Jason, Studio Operations Assistant
Place a container or bucket outside your window. It'll collect rain, which you can then use to water your indoor plants. It eliminates running your faucet. You can also use that water for mopping and cleaning.

Calia, Studio Manager
When you go to buy coffee, bring your own thermal mug, so that you don't waste paper cups...and trees.

Simeon, Utility
Encourage your neighbors to practice better recycling habits. Be the "green police" and make sure everyone recycles correctly. Or appoint someone you know to enforce this properly.
