The Top 10 Lazy Ways To Save The Environment

by Mr. Lazy

It’s very difficult to be lazy if there is no planet to be lazy on. There are some effective ways to go green without leaving your room.

  • Switch to a green energy supplier on the web.
    • This is one of the easiest and most effective things you can do to reduce your energy use – an average household could save 1.5 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year.
  • Don’t leave your appliances on standby.
    • Try the Intelliplug which automatically powers off your computer peripherals (monitor, speakers etc) when you switch off your PC. (Or get a Mac mini.)
  • Eat less meat and more local, organic food.
    • Believe it or not, the stomachs of the world’s 1.4 billion cows account for 14% of global emissions of methane, a greenhouse gas 20 times more potent than CO2. (Damn that’s a lot of cow farting.)
  • Get involved, stay informed.
