While you are gently whispering sweet nothings to your potted plants this morning, dont mention driving over to Whole Foods later today to learn how to reduce your carbon dioxide footprint. In conjunction with Earth Month the green supermarket chain is presenting the Whole Earth Weigh-In throughout April. Its a campaign to reduce carbon dioxide emissions through better personal management of resources.
Although plants thrive on those nasty gases which is why you mustnt tell Rose, Fern, or Philodendron about this its not so beneficial for humans. After signing a pledge to reduce your CO2 footprint, youll be presented with a brochure that will give you tips on how to cut back your greenhouse gas output (and why you should). Think of this program as a reducing diet, but instead of slimming your waist, youre cutting back on the pollutants that make your carbon dioxide footprint huge and unseemly. The program is free, and you also get coupons to start you on your way. Sign up at your friendly neighborhood Whole Foods, or visit www.wholefoodsmarket.com/earthday.
