Example text

First, it doesn't load landfills with bags full of clippings. ) I hate seeing huge stacks of grass-filled bags awaiting the garbage truck. Second, this means I don't need to use fertilizer, which does nasty things to groundwater and puts too much nitrogen in places where it doesn't belong. I have to confess that my reluctance to bag the clippings isn't totally driven by noble reasons. I do tend to be lazy. But it makes me feel good to know that being lazy is sometimes good for the planet. DAVID LUBAR has written all sorts of pollution-free books, including Hidden Talents and, appropriately enough, In the Land of the Lawn Weenies and Other Warped and Creepy Tales.

When some people think of cities, they think of a lot of garbage and pollution. But a lot of us city dwellers don't have cars and don't use gas. For example, I ride my bike or take the subway. Nobody has to heat my house. I live in an apartment building with a few hundred people, so we all share one boiler. I pick up after my dog … and now I even put the waste in biodegradable bags. But I have a guilty secret: I like to use paper plates. I love to have my godchildren, nieces and nephews, and now greatnieces and great-nephews all stay with me, but I don't love cleaning up.

Instead, I take my kudos from the dollars I save and from the thought that I am doing this eensy-teensy thing for the environment. If your feelings are easily hurt, if you can't take a little snubbing from an inanimate object, I think you should buy a gas guzzler. It will never turn its nose up at you. Your wallet will be lighter, too—less drag in your purse, less bulge in your hip pocket.
