No Impact Week: Trash

Bring your own mug to the coffee shop No Impact Man, a.k.a. Colin Beavan, took a yearlong vow to live a zero-waste lifestyle in New York City. The experiment inspired a blog, a book, a film - and others to embrace green habits. This week's tips will help you try a one-week carbon cleanse. Sign up here to share the results of your own No Impact Project.

Tip #1: Commit to Reusable Containers

Cut down on waste when visiting the grocery store, coffee shop, or cafe. How? Pack a reusable bag, mug, napkin, or eating utensils. When planning to dine at a restaurant, consider bringing a container for leftovers.
