Although I'm not sure how/where to enter the contest on this page, I want to share that I've decided to start a compost bin this spring for a greener earth and better gardening!!

I was part of the Ecology Club in high school (over 30 years ago) and was very cognizant of saving the Earth even back then. To that end, I have always reused and recycled. I use a shower head that stops the flow with a flip of the switch (when soaping up), unplug electronics/electrics and turn off lights when not in use, never let water run needlessly when washing hands (even in public restrooms!) or brushing my teeth at home, use towels instead of paper towels for drying hands, bring excess plastic bags to the dog park for others to reuse for doggy-do, bring old magazines to a hospital's E.R., etcetera because it is just second nature for me (it will be for you all too!) I have not gone "joy shopping" aka window-shopping/actual-shopping in 6 months to a year. My Earth Day Resolution is to pick up trash on my walks.

My family and I recycle items monthly. I also purchase products that are environmentally friendly. My sons are more aware of their role to have a better Earth for themselves and their future generations.

We use reusable bottles & recycled paper towels. We try to buy local at the Farmers' Market and have recently planted our own garden.

I resolve to never buy another bottle of water again. My water supply is good enough.

We recycle more than we throw out. Planning heirloom organic garden, preserving as much as possible. Installing 2 rain barrels nest week. I use reusable bags. Whatever plastic bags I do get, I donate to a local resale shop. I repurpose many items, shop garage sales, resale shops and flea markets. I do many other things, but my next step is non-toxic cleaners and pest control.

We are just putting in a raised bed at home to plant our first official organic garden. our kids are so excited. Since I help at our kids school for both their school gardens. We spent all day yesterday helping at our kids school in helping to set up the school garden for spring/summer garden planning. I also plan on being more responsible about our plastic waste and not purchasing any water bottles or plastic waste that could somehow contribute to the growing island of plastic in our oceans. happy earth day! much love

We are planting a garden with foods that our 4 month old baby will eat. We can feed ourselves and baby, while using less plastic containers.

I installed a tankless water heater, had my kids help a bit. This way, they also understand the benefits and work involved in saving energy. We recycled the old broken hot water heater together. It was good bonding time.

i will recycle more, reuse more, and try to reduce my consumption of consumer goods, so i will donate more, buy second hand more, and seriously think about whether i really need it before purchasing.

I am already taking my own reusable bag to grocery I am planning to compost. I am asking my household to user less water while brushing, bathing etc. Our toilet does not have a half flush feature. I am going to ask my apartment folks if they could change it.

We just made our first batch of laundry detergent! We are starting to make our own cleaners and soaps in order to reduce the amount of chemicals in our house.
