With Earth Day happening last weekend, I decided to share some Meta Hacks related to bettering our world. If you have any tips yourself, please share them here and I’ll post it in the next Meta Hacks of the Week. Also share these with your friends, and tell them to sign up here so they can join the community.

Here’s my 5 hacks for this week.

Enjoy.
