I turn off my water when I’m brushing my teeth and I collect plastic bottles at work from everyone with whom I work.

I use energy saver lightbulbs, recycle at work, and take re-usable shopping bags to the grocery store.

I bring my own bags to the grocery store. Turn off lights. Use air conditioning or heating sparingly – live in Florida Keys!

I use the energy saving lightbulbs too. They are great and our electric bill is much cheaper too. I turn off lights whenever I leave a room – even for a few minutes. I am told by my family that I am obsesive about recycling; paper, plastic, whatever the city will let me put in the bin.

I re-use lots of things, including wrapping paper & gift bags & bows. Now we are even re-using some of our greeting cards. We’ve kept them so long that we’ve forgotten about them, so we give them to each other all over again.

I recycle plastics, metals, and papers.
Compost.
Use reusable shopping bags.
Buy organic, carpool, traded my SUV for a low-emissions car, walk/bike any distance less than 2 miles, use energy saver bulbs and appliances, unplug appliances when they’re not in use, and only turn lights on when needed (I.E. after nightfall) to limit my vampire energy use.

We use energy saving light bulbs, turning them off when not needed. We take our plastic bags to the local resale shop. I have a pattern for making coated clothes hangers from braided plastic bags. They’re useful and it keeps them out of landfills.

My husband and I buy blocks of renewable energy through our power company, we use compact fluorescent bulbs instead of incandescent ones, and my husband takes public transit to work everyday.

We have changed all of our bulbs to the florescent bulbs to save energy!! I reuse all of my bottles and bags and plastic containers that items come in. I keep my thermostat as low as possible and still stay warm…of course this is also to save $$$.

Cloth diapers, extended breastfeeding, vegan eating, reusable bags at the store, sharing one car and using the city bus…I want this planet to be habitable for my son!

What don’t I do????

O.K. We have moved from the city to the country in an effort to reduce our whole consumption on the land. We farm, which reduces all the waste caused by packaging, delivery and manufacture of products. We recycle as much as we can, especially clothing. Free Cycle and our local resale shops are awesome for this.

We use therapeutic grade oils to keep us healthy. One of the biggest pollution causing industries is the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. Removing them from our lives saves our planet from tons of chemical pollution.

Eventually I plan to build an earth shelter with renewable materials with a year round green house for food. This house will be completely off grid. I am working on an electric generator that will provide any house with plenty of electricity at a minimum of cost for installation and no cost to run. (Looking for help with this.)

I recycle, I take reusable shopping bags with me everywhere, I take my lunch to work in reusable containers rather than plastic wrap, baggies and paper bags and also bring my own utensils so that I don’t need disposable ones, I buy items made from recycled materials and items that can be recycled after use whenever possible, I bundle up in the winter and keep my heat set lower, I use energy saving lightbulbs, and I recycle (and luckily live in a town with curbside recycling!).

My husband and I grow our own vegetables in the summer. We also recycle paper, plastic, glass & garage products. The heat is set low and we bundle up. He has been converting our light bulbs. We need to consider and do more “Green” solutions.

I stumbled upon this blog while looking for reusable water bottles to purchase for all the students in my son’s classroom. They are consistently asked to bring in water and it drives me nuts. I am going to order bottles and personalize them so they don’t get mixed up. Next up: get the board of ed to stop using plastic bottles.

I’m slightly OCD about recycling. I recycle bottles, cans, paper. Sometimes if I’m out on a daytrip or something I’ll even take a can around with me in my purse so I can recycle it at home rather than throw it away in a bin somewhere. I also reuse water bottles as often as I can, and even have started making crafts and things out of found or upcycled things – like for example a notebook out of recycled paper with a cover that came from a cereal box or something. I reuse anything I can.

We try and prepare all our own meals from scratch and mostly fresh ingredients., and only eat out infrequently special occasions (etc). No prepackaged junk especially pre-made or frozen dinners. Rarely eat “Fast Food” I buy from the local farmer’s market on weekends. Try to walk to the grocery store and use only reusable bags.

CFL bulbs in all our sockets. We recycle paper,plastic,glass.

Composting green waste for fertilizer for our small garden, mostly fresh Herbs and Tomatoes. try to buy local think global..Less oil used if products come from your community.

Going to switch to a Tankless water heater. that is run from a solar power generating cell on the roof.

Live in Hawaii so never run the heater, the air never goes under 80 degrees on the thermo when it is on.

Try an unplug all unessential elecrtronic equipment. Unplug major electronics at night TV etc. Use the dishwasher infrequent and only when full is it run…and never use the dry cycle…let it air dry or towel dry.

Only run the Washer and dry after 9:00pm off peak hours..On good days Hang laundry from a dry line.
Wash car at car wash that recycles and cleans the water.

Try to use mass transit more often. When driving rarely exeed the speed limit
and use cruise control when can.

Thinking of getting electric car that use the solar power generator to recharge.

Water off when sudsing up, brushing teeth etc..

Anything else I’ll bring it up.

I make sure to help the environment by using and reusing glass bottles for drinking water. I also run a business that is globally conscious about using the environmentally friendly products and containers.

I’ve changed all my household bulbs to compact fluourescents bulbs.
I turn off the water when I brush my teeth.
I recycle everything I can and watch to buy products that use as little packaging as possible.
Heat is on a thermostat with a timer and is set about 4 degrees lower than previously – I just bundle up in blankets and fleece. 🙂
