These days, everyone wants to save the planet.
Electric cars roam the streets. Solar panels soak up the sun beating down on our rooftops. We all want to do our part, but even throwing away trash in a public place can stop you in your tracks: Do I put this paper cup go in the landfill receptacle or is it recyclable? Can I mix paper, plastic, metal, and glass? Do I put it in the green or blue container?
Meanwhile, sky-high utility rates are forcing us to conserve at home. And some of us are installing smart plugs in our homes to save us from the drain of “vampire power” — things that are “on” even when they’re not.
