It's the little things.

It's the little things.

Simple, inexpensive things you can do to help the planet



It’s the little things exists to share ideas for how we can all walk the Earth with a lighter footprint.

Each week we publish a new “little thing” (subscribe to our RSS feed to be notified automatically). You can rate the idea and discuss your level of commitment to it in the comments. It’s a simple idea, but one we hope is thought provoking.

We are not climate scientists, experts in energy production, nor makers of public policy. We are volunteers, a small group of web geeks trying to make the world a better place.

We are just concerned—probably a lot like you are—about the future of our planet. We want to make a difference and we invite you to join us.

For more about why we built It’s the little things see our Statement of Purpose.
