Stephanie wrote in with a smart tip this week.

"Why not have a once-a-week feature allowing readers of AT: Green to leave their best eco-tips? We all have our two cents on posts, but I'm sure everyone has great, simple ideas they use in everyday life, and it would create a phenomenal tip post. Just a thought!"
We like the way you're thinking, Stephanie. We're not sure if this will be a once-a-week feature, but it's definitely a today feature. So, lay it on us. What are some of your eco-tips?
This one was shared by a co-worker. It's not going to blow your mind, but it's something we hadn't thought of doing. Take a place setting to work -- one bowl, one plate, one glass, one coffee mug, one fork, one knife, and one spoon. This way you don't ever need to schlep dishes back and forth between your home and office; you won't ever be tempted to heat your leftovers in a plastic container; and you'll be able to say good-bye forever to any disposable utensils, plates, or bowls your employer happens to keep stocked in the lunchroom.
