Punxsutawney Phil emerged just after dawn on Groundhog Day to make his annual weather forecast in front of a smaller-than-usual crowd who braved muddy, icy conditions to hear his handlers reveal that he had not seen his shadow.

 

Including Wednesday's forecast, Phil has seen his shadow 98 times and hasn't seen it just 16 times since 1887, according to the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club's Inner Circle, which runs the event. There are no records for the remaining years, though the group has never failed to issue a forecast.

5 Green Habits That Matter More Than Recycling
http://planetgreen.discovery.com/home-garden/green...
by Mat McDermott in New York City

Like many organizations you are trying to do your part to reduce carbon emissions and make the most of the natural resources we all consume you recycle right? If you're an average GreenNonprofits reader you probably do a bit more than the average US citizen who recycles about one third of the waste they produce, preventing about 1600 pounds of carbon being released into the atmosphere.

 

 

That's a good thing, but do you want to do even more?

 

 

 

 

Click "full story" below to find five things Mat McDermott recommends you can do which reduce your emissions as much or more than recycling.
