  • Reduced consumption of unnecessary items- For example, single use packaging, bottled water, yogurt.....
    Reuse items until they are no longer servicable.
    Most of our garbage is recycled- The green waste and recycle receptacles are 3Xs larger than the solid waste totes- all provided by the county.
    We cull out plastics and cans for our own recycle- we have limited plastic purchases all together.
    Canvas, reusable bags
    I make my own cleaning, laundry and hair products (shampoo)
    Green, native landscaping-limited water needs and no grass,
    Locally grown Produce is generally purchased from FMs or CSA
    Thermostat= 62 (W) and 80 (S)
    Laundry- mixed, max loads +CSS

  • We're simply conscientious about recycling, and reusing jars and containers where possible, we maintain a large fruit and vegetable garden and have planted a many sapling trees, shrubs and flowers on our property! But that's about it! :o)

  • I recycle everything that I can, and try to avoid using products that have a lot of unnecessary packaging. I buy organic when I can afford it, and grow my own vegetables in the summer.  I also try to keep my household products as simple and "green" as possible, make my own detergent and cleaning solutions and hair care. I also use canvas bags when I shop, and reuse what I can't recycle, when possible. I donate things that we no longer need, so that they can have another life in another home, and I try to buy products that are made by environmentally responsible companies.

  • I'll defer to George


    Most of what people do that they think is "saving the planet" is either doing nothing or, in some cases, making it worse.  If people paid half as much attention to reduce and reuse as they did to recycle, they'd be doing a lot more good.  If you have to pay for it, it's not helping.  If it's marketed as being "Green", it's more likely in the doing more damage than in the doing nothing category.

  • I recycle everything I can. I have also cut down GREATLY on my paper usage, thanks to the Internet. I don't get any paper bills, and I use e-cards and e-vites over paper cards. I donate old clothing, shoes, furniture, etc.
