I'm making it a point to go to the local farmer's market EVERY weekend.

We already use homemade cleaners - next I'd like to try dishwashe soap.

I recycle my old running shoes and keep lots of cloth grocery bags in my car. Recycle any plastic, glass or aluminum cans and donate the funds to charity.

I'm all about Eco friendly and human friendly products. I see to many people sick from chemically laden toxic products. There are none in my house. I would like to try to make laundry detergent this year using homemade soap. Unless I win. Thanks

Here's a new one and something that I have not read on the posts. I have a water filter/water dish for my animals that uses plastic filters. This means I am dumping more plastic away as the filter is not re-usable. I found a glass one that I can re-fill myself w/ the charcoal and now no more plastic filters...

I teach several Kindergarten classes about composting and then use the compost to plant a flower for their Mother's for Mother's Day. That's always exciting for me (and for them) We recycle whenever we can and I've been blessed with the results we've obtained. I'm a real believer in composting...

We all use reusable lunch containers, recycle everything possible, and use reusable tote bags. I also prefer rehabbing housewares to buying new ones. This year I plan to conquer getting rid of dry cleaning bags.

I stopped buying plastic bottles of water by the case. My house is old and I don't trust the tap water from the old original pipes, so now I use the best water filtration system I can afford and fill clean water bottles I keep in the 'fridge. This year I'm looking ahead to another miserable summer. My current plan is to buy a small energy-efficient, window air conditioner and use it to cool only a small part of the living space. (Haven't yet solved the problem of cooking without cool air, but I'm working on it!) Hopefully I'll be able to avoid using the still functional but old and power- hungry central air system completely. If it works, I'll do the same thing upstairs and just cool down my bedroom at night.

We recycle and donate all used goods to charity. This year I plan on planting an herb garden.

I use and will continue to use mesh bags for holding the produce that I buy at the market - it's more eco-friendly than using the plastic produce bags.

I'm definitely going to be using less chemicals around the house (baking soda, lemon juice, vinegar, and castile soap for the win!) and on my body. And always, ALWAYS using a reusable bag for groceries or any shopping in general.

I've stopped using toilet bowl cleaner. A regular cleaning with a toilet brush works just fine. Why did I think I needed a chemical? There is enough chlorine in the city water to sanitize it.

I will use a Tervis 24oz cup for my water in the car instead of a bottle, carry fabric bags in the car for shopping, & discontinue use of cleaning chemicals

Will try to always have a reusable water bottle with me so I don't have to buy bottled water

We are recycling everything we can. Making weekly trips to the MET. We have started a compost bin, to cut down on trash/ waste from our home. We have also installed raised bed gardens. I am using less as far as chemicals around the house, trying instead to use natural alternatives. I have also started using natural products for personal use as well. We try to walk more and use our vehicles less. We planted a tree and are now enjoying the small amount of shade it is producing. Overall we are trying to live greener and cleaner. Sunny

I recently planted a vegetable garden in my backyard. I can't wait for all the delicious veggies to start growing.

I plan to sun-dry all of my laundry this year. Also stop using store-bought fertilizer for my yard. I have a compost pile and I will be saving my urine and add it to the pile. Urine is a great natural fertilizer for the grass.

I'm going to halve my garbage output, getting more into my compost and recycling bins.
