my favorite thing is to bring my own cloth tote grocery bags. i feel great about not adding to the waste problem, and also they are SO MUCH STURDIER than plastic/paper from the store! And with handles! really, why wouldn't you do this?

By Blogger Carrie, The Modern Housewife, at 4/25/2007 12:39 PM  

that's a great tip carrie!
they have cute ones that zip up into a little heart shaped pouch i've been meaning to post a picture with a link...

I walk with my children to parks and around the neighborhood every day instead of driving far.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 4/25/2007 3:00 PM  

I'm turning every old plastic thing I can find into jewelry. Does that count!?

By Blogger Liana, at 4/25/2007 4:11 PM  

We buy from resell stores whenever possible, we grow a garden, drive gas efficient vehicles, use crocheted kitchen towels instead of paper towels, recycle, recycle, recycle, we walk a lot, we hang most of our clothes on our clothes line, we sponsor a sea turtle...whew! Im feeling pretty good about us. Love seeing everyone's tips!

By Anonymous Eren, at 4/25/2007 5:06 PM  

I turn out lights constantly. Buy organic as much as possible. Don't buy vegetables in bulk at Costco that will turn into slime in my refrigerator before we use them up. Don't smoke.Don't have an SUV

my husband and i both work at home and we shared a car for 6 years. he just bought a 1973 mustang and it gets about 8 miles per gallon. we only use it for a sunday drive. i hope we don't undo all the good we have done.

This is a great topic! There are so many little things you can do. Just to name a few:

Change your lightbulbs to CFL's. (that's compact florescent)

Buy used clothing at the consignment shop and consign or donate your old ones.

Buy local products as much as possible to minimize the energy used for transportation.

Look for non-hazardous household cleansers or make your own.

Look for more tips and product ideas for living a green & healthy family life on my blog, Mindful Momma. www.mindfulmomma.typepad.com

I cloth diaper my little one's. We drive like "grannies" which adds miles to the gas tank. I line dry, though it is forced with my dryer conked out. We recyle alluminum. Shop second hand stores and yard sales.

By Blogger Qtpies7, at 5/13/2007 3:04 PM  

I had an Earth Day party for my 19mo old and all her little friends, we planted trees and herbs for them to take home. I started using cloth grocery bags which hold way more so I have fewer bags to carry in on top of the other great benefits. I recycle everything possible, using paper grocery bags for my sorting. I recycle even though it piles up in my garage since its a bit of a drive to the drop-off and I only go once a month. We walk to get the mail or visit friends within the neighborhood and even to run errands like drop packages at the post office and pay the water bill.
