  • i am going to say 5... i use paper plates...but im guessing thats the most "wasteful" thing i do....

    we have a dishwasher but i never really use it because i just hand wash the little bit of dishes that i do get...we have those energy saver light bulbs for outside since there on all night....if we are not useing something i turn it off... my hubs is more the wasteful type but i have not had things before so i dont take them for granted...

  • If one is horrible and ten is living in a shack raising my own chickens, I'd say I'm a 7. I do pretty good without completely giving up modern conveniences. I do it for both reasons.

  • I would love to say 10. But probably only like a 5. I try to recycle and do paperless billing and stuff like that, but I also drive far to work everyday.

  • I'm prolly a 3. I use those lightbulbs they say to and I have my computer and tvs and stuff on a power strip so I can shut it all the way off when not in use but then again I drive alot, I use paper plates and I run my dishwasher not all the way full sometimes.

  • I would say I'm an 8 and I do it for both reasons. I'm very earth conscious. I've tried to instill that in the kids, but it means more to me than to them. They can be very wasteful. I turn their lights off after them.
