Change the margins

This afternoon as I was driving to Target, I heard an interesting story on Day to Day concerning the environment and a website called Change the Margins. I was struck by the simplicity of the idea, having everyone change their page margins to 3/4″, and how this simple little idea could impact the earth in such a big way. She points out on the site that it’s not a new idea and I think that’s the great part. Everyone’s always looking for ways to help the environment and “go green” and this campaign attests to the fact that you don’t have to go out and buy a Prius to help out the Old Lady, Mother Nature. You can do something as simple as changing your margins which will take approximately 30 seconds if you are super slow. Help the landfills! Save some trees! Please sign her petition!
