Here are some green tips that I have seen online:

- For holidays, make homemade treats.

- Travel by bus, plane, train.

- Keep your tires inflated.

- Visit a local Farmer's Market or grow your own vegetables/fruits.

- Homemade Wood Polish - 1/4 cup distilled vinegar or lemon juice, few drops olive oil.

- Buy organic veggies/fruits.

- Buy items in bulk.

- Cook meals instead of eating out.

- Buy plants that reduce indoor pollution.

- Use honey instead of sugar.

- Hang curtains to limit heat gain during the summer and loss in the winter.

- Pay bills online.

- Use compact fluorescent lightbulbs.

- Save leftovers.

- Ride your bike or turn off your car while waiting.

- Wash rugs regularly.

- Take lunch to work, school, etc.
