When we’re young, we all want to change the world. Save the planet! Save the whales! And then we grow up, and realize that huge issues like climate change, deforestation and renewable energy are far more complicated than we’d ever imagined. But what if you really could change the world for the better, step by step?
Deckopedia’s 50 Ways to Go Green shows you how. This compact deck of sturdy cards is an inspiring way to create—and sustain—a fabulous eco-friendly life. Many of the ideas are mere 10-minute fixes, such as ways to stop junk mail, but the deck also includes more advanced projects, like how to plant a native garden or install solar panels. Throughout, the tone is approachable and inspiring, not finger-waggling.
So many of us want to make better choices, and this deck highlights how the seemingly tiniest of efforts can have a big impact. Take card No. 41, for example, which points out that if just one out of 10 U.S. households used cotton swabs with paper spindles instead of plastic, the petroleum saved would be more than 7,800 barrels of oil. Card No. 43 suggests using matches rather than lighters. Why? Lighters get depleted and wind up in landfills and waterways. Matches, on the other hand, are biodegradable. In fact, a person could use a lifetime of matches and still not go through one single tree’s worth of wood. Who knew?
50 Ways to Go Green offers Earth-friendly ways of cooking, eating, working, shopping and commuting. You’ll also find clever methods for reducing your water consumption, using your fridge more wisely, and saving on office supplies. That’s right! Going green also saves “green,” helping you lower your monthly bills.
This uplifting, user-friendly deck retails for $19.95 and is a great gift for high school and college students, families, and young people in their first apartments. The deck is the perfect size, too, for stashing in a glove box, in a backpack or for use as a holiday stocking stuffer gift. Deckopedi a Publishing is a proud member of 1% For the Planet and is donating 1% of its sales of 50 Ways to Go Green to Grades of Green.
This card deck is easy to bring along on plane rides, car trips, to restaurants while you are waiting for the food to arrive….. they ideas are easy to grasp for youngsters, and good ideas that are fun to share! I’ve done this with my kids and now they remind me! — the editor
