Posted by RMPBS

What better way to celebrate Earth Day than by greening up your daily routine? To help you get started, RMPBS has put together a list of online resources—from composting tips to an ecological footprint calculator. Simply click, read and get greening!

How big is your ecological footprint? Find out here.

Where does U.S. energy come from? What exactly is energy efficiency? Find the answers to these questions and more at The National

Academies’ informative “need to know” energy information guide.

For basic information on recycling and a list of recyclers near you, check out Colorado’s Association for Recycling’s recycling resources.

Find composting tips as well as guides that break down the best ways to recycle at home, at work or at school at Boulder-based Eco-Cycle’s website.

It pays to go green! Check out the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency to see what incentives are available in your community.

And no sustainability effort would be complete without greening up your diet. Try shopping at farmer’s markets for seasonal, locally sourced food products – and support your local farmers in the process. Find a farmer’s market near you.
