Save the earth by working less. Did you know that working long hours is bad for your health and the environment? We produce more stuff, use more resources, and rely heavily on convenience items like fast food with plastic utensils and wasteful packaging.

A new study shows that working too many hours is bad for our planet, save the earth by working less. Around the world, 127 countries have a paid vacation law on the books, but United States isn’t one of them. Read about a campaign to change that.

Working long hours is not only bad for your health, it’s bad for the environment, too. Longer hours means using more resources, producing more stuff and relying on wasteful convenience items, which go against the green mantra “reduce, reuse, recycle.” Unlike 127 other countries around the world, America doesn’t have a minimum paid leave law on the books. The U.S./Canadian organization Take Back Your Time has launched a campaign for legislation that will guarantee workers three weeks of paid vacation. Visit timeday.org to learn more. And if you really want to help save the earth, work less, produce less and play more!
