Recently my family has embarked on being more eco-friendly. We’ve taken some pretty great steps to bettering ourselves for the good of our planet. For example, we made our own rain barrel. That way during those hot Texas summer months we can use our saved up rain water instead of using city water. We also recycle everything we can. It’s little steps that can make a big difference in the world. We as a family love learning new ways to help out our planets. The Deckopedia 50 Ways to Go Green Deck is an amazing deck of cards that shows you how to create an eco-friendly life.
Deckopedia is an amazing invention created by Caroline Chabert Graeff, a former professional snowboarder, to help busy on-the-go people find ways to learn new information in their precious free time. She has created several decks of card with different lifestyle topics such as The Raw Rood Beginner’s Deck, 50 Must-See Destinations, and 50 Road Trip Games. The decks are the perfect size to throw into your purse or carry-on bag so that you can take them out and learn something new at your convenience.
Deckopedia’s 50 Ways to Go Green contains 50 different and simple ways to make your life greener. The cards vary from simple fixes to big projects, each just as important as the last. Some ideas include ways to stop junk mail or installing solar panels. But what really matters is that each idea is something that can be done. The cards are worded in a way that makes them inspiring not overwhelming.
Here are a few examples:
Card No. 41, points out that if just one out of 10 U.S. households used cotton swabs with paper spindles instead of plastic, the petroleum saved would be more than 7,800 barrels of oil.
Card No. 43 suggests using matches rather than lighters. Why? Lighters get depleted and wind up in landfills and waterways. Matches, on the other hand, are biodegradable. In fact, a person could use a lifetime of matches and still not go through one single tree’s worth of wood.
The 50 Ways to Go Green deck offers eco-friendly ideas for many different every day activities such as cooking, eating, working, shopping and even commuting. Some of the suggestions can even save you money.
The deck retails for $19.95 and it would make a great gift.
For every deck purchased 1% of its sales go to Grades of Green through the 1% For the Planet movement.
Deckopedia has been very gracious to allow me to host a giveaway. How does 2 decks to 2 winners sound? Giveaway will run from 4/2/15 – 4/18/15. US and 18+ only.
