It’s interesting. I hadn’t noticed how much energy I was wasting until I watched the Live Earth series. I ended up having it on in the background (of my computer which I was already using, so I wasn’t wasting any power there), and I learned quite a bit, not to mention was actually a bit disgusted with some of the facts.

The fact that hit me the hardest though was the fact that recycling a single tin can will save enough energy to power a television for three hours. That’s (for lack of a better word) insane.

But I have some good news: since I started actually paying attention, I’ve already started a recycling pile, which consists of 90% of the “garbage” that I would have simply thrown away a few days prior.

Hey, I guess I *am* susceptible to marketing after all. :)
