Well what things do you to help our Earth?

Our family recycles cans, we compost, we grow a few vegetables in a garden, I try to use reusable shopping bags when I remember to bring them in! I feel as though we could do much more but these are the things we have been tring to do!

We recycle all plastics 1, 2, 3 & 7, metals and glass.

I've started using eco-friendly cleaners (bathroom & dishwasher).  We also reuse our plastic bags around the house for trash and cat litter :)

We recycle and I try to use reusable grocery bags but the cashiers at my local grocery always seem disturbed by having to mess with it. They check me when I leave too and it comes across to me as a bigger deal than it should be. I feel like I am the only one that shops in the store with reusable grocery bags - lol. I would grow a garden but the deer eat anything I try to grow.

I reuse grocery bags for trash bags, I buy recycled paper products, and recycle. We use those lightbulbs that are better/ use less energy. I'm sure there's lots more we could do tho.

Lets see, both our vehicles are hybrids. We recycle plastic bags for dog/cat poop/litter. We recycle plastic/glass. We invested in energy star appliances when we got the house... my hubby refinishes old furniture from friends/relatives instead of throwing it out.

I know this sounds really bad, but all I do is recycle cans and bottles. I reuse my shopping bags for like trash can liners. LoL. I don't care for the "green" cleaners. I like my bleach and Mr. Clean cleaners. Wow. I really need to step it up....

But my DD loves to help mommy and daddy sort cans. I guess thats a start...

We aren't into the whole "natural living" thing. We like our creature comforts (including our cleaners and real toilet paper). We do recycle cans and bottles.

I am a Private School sending, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Homework Helping, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Academic pushing Mum. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it raising my child - I will do that, Thank You. I believe that a woman's place is in the home taking care of her house, children and husband. I am a proud, traditional Roman Catholic, as is my husband... Yes we are teaching our daughter that The Church is the only Church. I am very conservative and a proud Republican.              Aimee

I don't try too hard...if at all. I recycle cans and bottles most of the time. I buy energy start appliances, because it saves me money.

I can't think of anything else.
