The Earth-to-Philly-generated Features cover story in today's Daily News - featuring a custom illustration from our own Signe Wilkinson - takes the premise that you, the reader, may not have been paying attention to the "green" thing up until recently. But you, the Earth to Philly reader, have certainly been paying more attention than the average American, right?
So for the online version we've added a quiz where you can test your knowledge of various efforts to help the planet by comparing two products or activities, some of which are very similar to each other, and others that are utterly different. Each answer contains a link to the study or story providing the background documentation. Good luck!
