The Eco-Benefits of Vegetarianism: Saving the Planet with Healthy Eating

We would never tell you what to eat or how to eat! But it’s no secret that the Posconsumers team thinks that there’s value in going meat-free or in reducing meat in your diet. We’ve previously touched on the topic of the massive carbon footprint of meat in specific relationship to the fall and winter holidays. And there’s certainly no shortage of eco-friendly food tips on Postconsumers that are directly related to vegetarianism. [...]

Reconciling the Need for Something with Its Environmental Impact

Need versus want is a concept that we’ve talked about a great deal at Postconsumers, but what about need versus impact? That’s an equation that we haven’t touched on. However, as we all acknowledge the relationship between our culture’s addictive consumerism and the environmental crisis, we think that it’s an equation that requires adequate attention.

Evaluating Environmental Wins and Losses in 2016

Last year during Earth Day month, we touched on the overwhelming feeling that people were beginning to be more discouraged and that Americans seemed to not care about being eco-friendly anymore. This year, that feeling may weigh even more heavily on you given the results of the 2016 American presidential election and subsequent policy maneuvers.

A Little Earth Day Check-In on BPAs and Plastics

It’s not as though we’ve never talked about plastics on Postconsumers before. From laying out exactly how long it takes for a plastic bottle to biodegrade to giving you all of the information that you need about the harmful practice of using single-use plastic bags, we like to think that we’re doing our part to educate the world on the harmful nature of plastic, well, everything.

Biodiesel. Is That Even a Real Thing?

There’s a town in Western Pennsylvania, not far from Pittsburgh, where a very innovative mayor has been transforming a dying steel town into a self-sustaining community with tools like community gardens and … biodiesel. We know this because a member of the East Coast Postconsumers team drove through the town recently and passed by the community biodiesel stations. That got said team member thinking, “Why don’t you hear more about biodiesel in the [...]

E-Cycling: A Gentle Reminder Of the Most Important Recycling “Extra”

About a year ago, our local trash collection service sent out a reminder that they would no longer pick up old, discarded televisions during weekly pick-up. Of course, they provided a list of electronics recycling venues that would take someone’s television. Not surprisingly though, most people ignored all of this information and within a short month the neighborhood was dotted with abandoned televisions on the sidewalk and neighbors angry at the city for [...]
