According to a survey by MSN.com, eco-friendliness has its boundaries and nearly 70 percent of people admit they would never limit toilet flushes to conserve water or use a kitchen compost.
Although 50 percent of folks think recycling everything is possible, the rest of America needs convincing.
A whopping 46 percent say itll take a simplified system for identifying recyclables or curbside pickup to motivate them to recycle all of their waste.
Another 33 percent say it would take either a tax credit or $1 million for them to compost everything.
Additionally, 20 percent of people still dont have access to a local recycling service, and 20 percent dont even know what a carbon footprint is.
However, some people are willing to shift to an eco-friendly lifestyle, with 49 percent claiming theyd give up air conditioning for a summer or become a vegetarian for a year if it meant reducing their carbon footprint.
