Paper or Drastic
Umbra on personal actions that pack a wallop

Paper bag heads. Eco-advice guru Umbra Fisk is privy to a lot of anxiety. Readers send her a landslide of questions: Should I toss away my carrot peelings or put them down the garbage disposal? Should I buy my beer in bottles or cans? Should I choose paper or plastic at the checkout counter? Umbra, ever the pragmatist, has this to say: It. Doesn't. Matter. If you can get past the either-or decisions that are keeping you up at night and focus on the bigger picture, you will be a much happier person -- and the environment will be better off too. She promises.
