Everyday I pick up three pieces of litter. It makes me feel good, and lots of people notice, which may force me out of a "job" One can only hope.

I will CONTINUE to use re-useable bags. I will CONTINUE to recycle. I will CONTINUE to use green products. I will reduce the number of lights I have on in my home at the same time. I am guilty of that. I will do all in my power to do anything required to help our planet earth.

Our family has cut way back on using paper products (paper plates, cups, etc.) and are reusing paper bags at the grocery store.

The easiest thing to do is to wash laundry in cold water, and of course bring your own cloth bags to the supermarket.

I plan to buy a bike and figure out other uses for things that are usually discarded.

I am already using cold water cycle for " not dirty clothes".Hand washing some dishes saving the dish washer for dishes with actual stuff on them . Talking about these green ideas helps. I am surprised at how few people do anything green including friends and family when I see them in their environment.Do not preach just look for opportunities.

I will eat less take out food to reduce the amount of disposable containers and flatware going to our landfills.

I am going to make a real effort to not purchase anything that isn't packaged in earth friendly packaging.

Use damp newspapers to clean windows and dry newspapers to finish and shine the windows; then recycling the same used newspapers in my blue bag for further recycling.

This year, I am resolved to use fewer plastic bags, particularly ziploc type bags. I will be using containers for my son to take his lunch and snacks to school that he can bring home and wash. And I am putting a reusable bag into my purse so that I will always have handy at the grocery store instead of using the store's plastic bags.

Remember to turn off the faucet when brushing my teeth, instead of letting it run. And I brush my teeth alot!

I've started vermicomposting with my kids! We now have over 1,000 pet worms! we recycle newspaper, shredded bills, junk mail our fruit and veggie scraps and at the same we make fertilizer for our plants and veggie garden! I've also started my second compost bin. I hope to teach my family to be good stewards of our resources. And care for our earth!

I will decrease my usage of plastic bags more and also be more conservative with the water and electricity usage in my home.

I will try to recycle more items and buy less products that will end up in a landfill. I will also try walking more often. I will change the lightbulbs that we are currently using to ones that last longer throughout our house.

We have 2 ideas that we are forging ahead with as a family. We have greatly reduced our use of plastic bags by keeping a stash in the car. More and more, it is becoming a habit to bring them into the store. Our other idea is biking. To get healthy and enjoy some low cost familly activity, we searched Craig's list for 4 used bikes & a burley and plan to start biking this summer or sooner.

I will frequent my farmer's market for locally grown organic food,every other week, at our year round farmer's market. I will also make sure that all of my clients know that their food stamps can be used towards fresh local produce at this farmer's market.

Search/Buy 100% recyclable items I love the recycled items. I search them our in every store I go. Recycled items are just as good as non-recycled items except, they won't harm the planet earth. You can find anything from: aluminum foil, to brief cases, hanging file folders, storage boxes, & much more. Be sure to look for the recycle symbol or wording on each item you purchase. If you can't find recyclable items where you typically shop, ask the store manager about it. Maybe you'll make that store aware of recyclable items and help save the planet.

Yesterday I went to Staples to return ink cartridges as well as well as plan on getting a new printer so I will trade my old one in for a new one with a fifty$ discount. My daughter,husband and I will be planting two trees since we lost so many in our back yard this weekend as well as getting a one of those composters for outside from the money that we save from buying a new printer. Then we will start growing mushrooms from all of the trees that we lost it is a pefect climate for growing this veggie as well as other veggies in our garden can not wait then we plan to sell at local farmers market as well as restaurants in the surrounding areas.
