I reuse my Whole Food bags for shopping and when they get too ratty, I recycle by lining my garden beds with them. I never use chemical products in the garden or on my lawn. Found alfalfa pellets are my garden and lawns best friend. I recycle kitchen scrapes and keep a compost pile in the yard a few feet from our vegetable garden. I do not use paper cups, plates or plastic utensils. I use 10 microfiber clothes a day and save a ton on paper towels. I recycle a lot of paper, i.e., newspaper and magazines by living my garden beds with them. We do not have curb side recycling here and have to travel many miles to discpose of some things and some things we have no way of disposing of properly. I do what I can do be green.

We have started recycling everything from the paper to our plastics and feel really good about it. And have also gone organic and feels good. I think I've already said that. Thank you.

I would like to start a small garden in our yard and teach my children how to grow our own vegetables. Also, become better about recycling in our home.

This past year I've started recycling empty toilet paper rolls, along with the empty paper towel rolls I already had been recycling.

I don't use plastics: stainless steel water bottle, re-usable cloth bags, re-use my plastic ones as trash bags and doggie poop bags :)

I already do the things above, use my own grocery bags, recycle, use reusable water bottles and travel mugs. I'd like my next step to clean up my diet a little more, I really need to buy more grass fed beef, organic chicken, etc.

I reuse the Whole Foods paper bags when I don't bring my own reusable bags, I use aluminum water bottle and never ever buy anything that comes in styrofoam packaging.

We recycle everything we can (which is a challenge-no curbside recycling in our neighborhood). We use reusable grocery bags and keep a small bag in each car for unexpected stops at the drug store, hardware store etc. We use filtered water, avoiding bottled water whenever we can.

We recycle, buy organic, and try to use green products. For Earth Day we are going to make an effort to support products with less wasteful packaging.

No bottled water, limit paper usage by reading online papers and sites and scanning documents and financial records,

In stead of a harsh environmentally unfriendly degreaser, make your own. Fill a half a spray bottle with vinegar, half water and add a tablespoon of dish washing liquid. Mix carefully and if you want add some drops of essential oils for fragrance and you have a very good degreaser.

Our family recycles everything, we use only green cleaners and reusable shopping bags. We eat only organic and sustainable raised food and grow some of it in our back yard too. We're not only green in our house, but outside of it too. We drive 100% electric Nissan Leaf!

I have started recycling and started growing my own veggies. My mother has helped me get going with the garden so my toddler can grow up eating fresh vegetables and learning that the store isn't a magical place food just appears! It comes from the earth.

We switched to using cloth napkins in our house instead of paper. I was skeptical if it would work out, but it has been a very easy switch. We bought the napkins online and everyone in our family has an off white napkin with a different color border stitching. We use the same napkin the entire day (unless it gets really messy). I just throw them in with our regular cloths as I do laundry and it has worked out great for us. So much less waste, and they are super soft and absorbent.

We recycle all that we can! There is always more than just one use for everything! The list could go on and on! Ontop of it all, praying others do the same to ensure our planet stays the beautiful place it is always helps too!

We just started composting at our house. Between that and recycling, we don't really end up with much trash.

I will not use the dryer sheet for drying my clothes, and see how it goes!
