Green Your Movie-Watching: Set Up a DVD Swap

Green DVD During those two-hour summer blockbusters, it’s easy to suspend your eco-habits along with disbelief. This week's tips offer ways to get a greener grip on movie-watching.

Tip #4: Exchange DVDs

With countless DVDs already bought and sold, skip the purchase of those plastic-encased copies and instead borrow flicks from friends. Most of those petroleum-based film packages, laced with various metals, are a challenge to recycle. If you're looking to get organized about counteracting disc-related wastefulness, consider starting a DVD swap in your neighborhood. Libraries, Netflix, and Redbox also offer thousands of reused movies.

Tell us: What's your favorite DVD-swap option?
