I resolve to use more of the recipes and secrets of Clean House Clean Planet by Karen Logan--especially the tea tree scrub with baking soda.

I am actively monitoring the amount of trash that piles up after every use. That means that determining on how much trash and/or recycleable items are created when doing anything: doing my laundry, the dish I order when I go to a restaurant, a certain product that I use on a daily/weekly basis, if I can carpool...etc. All of this will affect my lifestyle and my decision making on whether or not to order a certain dish or use a certain product. It must be earth-friendly and if it is recycleable, then it definitely takes precedence when I buy things.

I've planted a garden with a friend this year and plan on eating from the garden only and we've planted so many extras I will be able to give to my family and friends! I cannot wait to be rewarded with fresh food directly from the ground and not vegetables trucked across the country!!

Only "#1 and #2" containers are allowed to go into the recycling bins here, and there is so much trash that CAN be recycled! So, thanks to Whole Foods Marketplace, which accepts ALL types of containers and paper for recycling, I now have bins for each and every type of container, etc... so I can bring anything and everything that can be recycled, to Whole Foods Market!!!

I plan to use filtered water in a pitcher instead of bottled water. When I go out I plan to use steel water containers.

Recycle newspapers, plastic bottles, glass containers. Use recyclable bags. Grow herbs in flower boxes to prevent waste and buying them in plastic containers or puttign them in plastic bags.

I will continue to recycle discarted materials (yogurt containers, milk cartons, plastic water bottles, paper towel rolls, etc, etc) to make crafts with my 2 1/2 years old daughter and show her that we are recycling.

I try to get three uses from fresh vegetables purchases-1. Eat them, 2. Save the vegetable trimming for broth, and 3. use the broth vegetable remains in my composter.

I am going to reduce the "things" I own; use what I have, buy less food so I don't waste, share what I don't need any more.

I use vinegar for cleaning in my home. It does not smell very good, but it does the job! We use resuable shopping bags and recycle too. I am planning to plant more garden items this year too.

I take my reusable coffee cup and water bottle with me EVERYWHERE, and my reusable shopping bags live in my car so I don't forget them at home.

Nashville Neuromuscular Center therapists have always been very green in our personal lives - rain barrels, gardens and rain gardens, organic, reuse and recycle everything possible, etc. But we're putting our best feet forward to bring this to our business office too - local or organic oils and supplies, recyling paper, texting instead of paper memo, digital handouts, making sure our lights and electronics are off when not in use, etc. Look to your office to see how you can reduce and save there too.

I plan to walk/bike/carpool to places instead of driving. I plan to reduce my use of water and electricity by not doing laundry, so frequently/taking shorter showers.

I recycle as much as i can and reuse plastic bags/glass for other projects. I use reusable shopping bags, use a water pitcher instead of plastic water bottles and will expand my garden this year.

Coincidentally, I just vowed to start using environmentally friendly cleaning products. I found some online recipes for natural cleaning products, but I would love to try the Better Life products too!

Happy Earth Day! We are recycle fanatics! Reuse coffee cups, bring our own bags to shopping, compost, dry clothes outside, resuse the newspaper bags, recycle junk mail, newspapers, plastic and all other containers to our town recylce lot, and our kids mimic our everyday actions. We use filtered water to fill up our water bottles and make our own brewed iced tea. Then compost the tea bags for our garden.

I will not bring a plastic bag home from the grocery store!! I will use my reusable bags ALWAYS!!I will encourage my small town grocer to offer paper bags to his customers. The paper bags are stored out of site. I will ask them to give customers a choice.(This is not a whole Foods Market!) Also, I will try to cut down on plastic bottles in my refrigerator by buying my milk in the glass bottles that you return and NO plastic water bottles!
