Daily Tip: November 13, 2007

Update: The link to contact your members of Congress has been fixed.

It might seem like a no-brainer to most of you, but if you aren't already, bring a reusable tote bag when you go shopping. Making disposable plastic bags requires energy equal to 4 million barrels of oil a year, while paper bags use up 14 million trees annually.

Speaking of bags, we asked Hollywood stars which they hated more: plastic bags or paparazzi. You'd think they would pick the photographers who hound them every minute of their lives, but plastic bags are the focus of these stars who say things like, They're the scourge of our society," and "I would love to see no more plastic bags anywhere ever again." Watch the video, and then, after hearing the stars voice their opinions, make your own voice heard to your members of Congress.

Follow these easy steps to call their offices, and then let us know what they said.
