Via Ideal Bite, a daily green e-mail tip, comes this thought:

We know you aren't into porn. But your "friends" can save paper and plastic by feeding their fetishes via this neat, new doohickey called the internets. (The rest of us can get our PG-rated magazines, movies, and music online.)

That feels common sense, but we didn't know that "less than 5% of paper used to produce magazines is recycled." We also didn't know about Zinio, a service where you can subscribe and flip through mags on your computer. Then there is this website called Fuck for Forest where, well, you can submit your own creative photography and films or join by paying a membership fee, where the proceeds go to saving the rainforests. These people are chock full of tits tips!

While Ideal Bite fields their porn hate mail from subscribers, it might be good to visit an article from a year ago when they went eco with condoms and told us why it's better to trash than flush post-coital.
