For meals, serve organic and locally grown foods as often as possible. Do not preheat your oven. It wastes significant amounts of energy. Instead, place your food into a cold oven and slightly extend the cooking time. Use washable glasses and dishware, then clean them in a full dishwasher, rather than by hand, to conserve energy-intensive hot water.
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
