Green Tip 15: Recycle It, After you Light it


 
CHOOSE MATCHES OVER LIGHTERS 

Most lighters are made out of plastic and filled with butane fuel, both petroleum products. Since most lighters are considered "disposable," over 1.5 billion end up in landfills each year

When choosing matches, pick cardboard over wood. Wood matches come from trees, whereas most cardboard matches are made from recycled paper.


Earth Hour is quickly approaching, so keep those matches handy for your candle lit night!
