we’ve avoided
paying the

so...

our kids.
through
rising

even mentioned


the things you can’t put
   a pricetag on...
depletion of natural resources
    global warming
lower quality of life
  animal & plant extinctions
so what’s
an average Joe
             to do?
limit your impact.

 reduce your consumption
 (buy used, borrow, grow your own food)
 eat less meat
 walk or bike instead of driving
vote with your dollars.

 support eco-conscious businesses
 and products
 buy food from farmers’ markets
 shop local to reduce transportation
 and shipping costs
spread awareness.

 talk to your family & friends about
 the hidden costs of consumption
 teach your kids to consume less
 encourage your employer to be more
 eco-conscious
your
 everyday
   choices
 make a
difference.
think about the
                  costs
and make
   nomical
     choices.
for your   family...
and your
  pocketbook.
