Green Acts of Kindness: Hold the Door
Making the world a better place isn’t limited to protecting Earth’s physical resources: We’ve got to improve the person-to-person environment too. This week’s tips are about how to treat your fellow humans a little bit better with actions that just so happen to help the planet too.
Tip #1: Hold the elevator door.
Isn’t it the worst when you’re walking toward an elevator full of people only to see its door shut just when you’re close enough to get on? Decide to be the person who gallantly holds the door open for someone — it’ll improve morale and save electricity and hydraulic fluid: Why should the elevator have to use the energy to make two trips when it can make just one?
Tip #2: Give excess away.
Tip #3: Let it grow.
Tip #4: Be creative.
