We'll plant a garden, reducing our number of drives to the store, and nourish it naturally using a compost bin, reducing our waste, and a rain barrel, lowering our water usage. We'll continue using sulfate-free toiletries and plant-oil-based cleaners to help keep our rural Pennsylvania home beautiful and safe.

I am going to allow and encourage my dirty dishes to pile up in the sink! "How will this help", you ask?! I generally clean each utensil and plate as I use them because I can't stand a sink full of filthy dishes. Alas, "No More", I say! I must be using three times as much water living like this. I hereby vow that my sink and I will develop a new relationship of "bulk" cleaning and rinsing in order to reduce water. Let my husband rejoice at this news!

Endeavour to use products which are as natural (and as organic) as possible when dealing with a yard full of weeds and fireants!

For earth day, I plan to start being more conscious of my water waste; I try and make it a constant thought, but easily push the thought aside when frustrated. I plan to take shorter showers and use more green products to clean with.

I am going to make an effort to recycle more as I throw things away for Earth day and be eco-friendly!

I'm in the process of gathering up my large supply of recyclable shopping bags. I have purchased myself and each of my children recyclable drinking containers. And, now we're researching how to start our own little gardens in the planter boxes!

I need to make a conscious effort to turn off the lights when leaving a room and not leave the water running long to conserve energy.

Our neighborhood just started a recycling program and I am already collecting stuff to put in that bin!!! :D Plus, I am now using my own grocery bags to bring to the store so I don't have to get new ones and put more plastic in landfills! :)

I am planting a container garden in my tiny back yard and committing to shopping at farmers markets for whatever I cannot grow myself. My daughter and I will go to the market every weekend while it is open. We will continue to experiment with new recipes that we cook from scratch together!

We keep a reusable bag in the car for last-minute stops at the store. Also, this year we expanded our "salsa" garden to a full organic garden in which we planted our favorite produce -- enough to eat and preserve.

Two changes I will be making for sure: No more paper plates / plastic cups will be used in the house. I will also purchase reusable bags to take with me when shopping : )

Capture the the water we let run while waiting for the temperature to heat up and use it later to water our garden.

We are starting a new locally grown produce business called Cardinal Acres Produce. We will be reducing our carbon foot print, and giving the community around us chemical free, and extremly fresh produce. On Earth Day we will be donating veggie plants to the local pre-school so kids can learn where food comes from.

Been using lemon as all purpose cleanser, eucalyptus oil mixed in warm water and spray on mattresses, pillows, couch to prevent bugs and dust mites; steam clean just about every part of my home; energy saving light bulbs all around our property and have encouraged my residents to responsibly recycle. Love Mother Earth!

We are using reusable coffee and drink cups, as well as shopping bags. We have started using plant based household cleaners and personal care items. We started our own herb garden on our patio, and we ALWAYS recycle!

We use green cleaners and have reduced food waste by getting chickens and feeding them our spoiled/left over food.
