When I run the bath or shower waiting for the water to heat up, I put a large bucket underneath to catch the water. Then I use this water to feed plants and to clean.

I'm buying a better bike: the car can be used once in a blue moon for work.

I love coffee but never use paper cups from Starbucks. I take my own mug. Plus a lot of places charge you less for bringing your own cup. I use my camelback water bottle instead of buying plastic bottles for water. And I am buying a kindle fire so I can read books paperless. Love saving this beautiful planet!

We are doing container gardening, learning to compost, Switching to natural cleaners, saving shower/bath water & "bucketing" it to outdoor plants etc!

I am going to clean up and re plant my garden - great produce for baby foods and for the adults, too. And I'm using more and more vinegar to clean...

I hope to start a container garden and am trying to replace our household cleaning products and personal products with greener, safer alternatives.

I just got a compost bin and I'm filling it up! I can't wait to use what I grow and then reuse the scraps that are leftover.

I am using discarded pallets to build raised garden beds and if I can get enough small pallets, I will use then to build a fence (along with some discarded fence posts)around the flower garden to keep the dog out. (Tip: Line pallets with landscaping cloth and fill with dirt. You can use single pallets or stack them depending on what you are growing. Make sure you use untreated pallets for growing food as the chemicals can be toxic.)

I already filter waste the proper way and use cloth bags and I am not using any cleaning products as the good old wipe does it all with patience! I have a few lovely plants, and I think I'll plant just as many to double it ( 8 total. ) for earth day :). I am looking forward to everyone cleaning up their act, so the air and earth becomes more beautiful and green. I hope this post inspires many not to just think about it - but to do, also :).

Baking soda removes coffee and tea stains from cups in an instant! Add baking soda to cup with water and place in microwave for a minute. Pour out baking soda and water mixture; wipe clean. Stains are gone. Reapply for stronger stains.

I have planted a garden and have a nature mill composter so I can make compost even in the winter.

no better way to teach your children to be grateful and resourceful than to show them the hard work that goes into growing real food and how great the benefits are! We are in the middle of a move and I'm worried i won't be able to do much gardening at our rental. but i may have to resort to some container gardening. Winning the cleaners would be a great help in our transition to healthier and greener living!

I will find a way to recycle 5's and 6's instead of trashing them.

I plan on doing more research on growing organic and using natural cleaners, such as vinegar, baking soda and lemon oil. The information I find will be shared with others. We all win in the long run!

My resolution for Earth Day this year relates to my family's consumption of food. I want to continue to increase my awareness of what we are eating (and where it came from). And, I am very committed to reducing food waste by becoming more strategic with my meal planning.

Our family is going to try to reduce waste this year. We've started a compost pile, planted fruit trees and tomatoes in containers.
