From carpets to computers, T-shirts to TVs, manufacturing new products emits CO2. Extending the lives of existing goods reduces the need for manufacturing new ones.

Balance carbon emissions by purchasing offsets that go to efforts like planting trees or investing in alternative energy.
Furniture, veneers, flooring, and lumber from unmanaged tropical rain forests contributes to deforestation.
Recycled content is usually listed on the package of office paper, tissues, paper towels, etc.
In 2006, the U.S. recycled about 40 percent of packaging materials, saving 108 million metric tons of CO2 -equivalent emissions.
For example, if every U.S. household viewed and paid its bills online, solid waste would be cut by 1.4 billion metric tons and greenhouse gas emissions would decrease by 1.9 million metric tons each year.
Preferably fabric bags or reusable plastic ones, since producing 10,000 plastic bags emits about 19 metric tons of CO2.
