I continue to collect plastics and return them for recycling. Have been using my own canvas bags for over 20 years and always bring my own water bottle. There is an organic community garden supporting 15 families in my backyard. I lead two Girl Scout troops that practice eco conscious activities. I walk my daughters to school every day. We buy all our meat from Whole Foods to ensure safety for us, the aimals and our planet. I clean the house with non toxic products and use soapnuts for laundry. Even with all this, I always look for anything more I can do.

I've shortened my commute by changing jobs, and will try cycling to work and should take about the same time as the commute to my old job

I will be switching from clay cat litter to a natural, biodegradable litter. Also, I will make sure that I put food scraps that don't go in my composter into our yard waste cans. The city just supplied indoor food scrap collecting buckets to make this even easier.

I still have a few incandescent bulbs in my house - I'll be replacing those with CFLs.

My resolution is to speak out more to family, friends, and even strangers about the necessity of offsetting our carbon footprint and generally being conscience of the impact we make by our decisions. Recycling, reducing waste, composting, etc are no longer an option if we are to save this beautiful planet.

I will continue to bring my reusable bags to all stores, recycle all materials accepted by my trash company, turn off lights, drive less and much more.

I use SOS pads and put the used and not finished ones in a sealed small jar that stops them from oxidating quickly, this lets me use it over and over again with minimum or no rust. Also, I have made my own cleaners with vinegar, water, alchol, and liquid soap in a reusable bottle. This gets the scum off the showerdoor. I have my garden with WF starter veggies, also I am using potato skins that sometimes sprout plants, and fish emulsion to cause a healthy growth. I supply coffee grinds to the many plants we have. I have more but I am trying to get my housework done

I teach an ecology unit every year and try to add something each year that the students can use in their lives. This year it was recycling to decrease landfills and next year it will conserving water by doing simple things like not running the water while brushing your teeth.

Save dripping tap water and use as little water as possible. I have also just installed a reverse osmosis water filter in my home. Turn of unnecessary electrical on a consistent basis.

Make a checklist which includes: use only green cleaners inside and outside of home, ride bikes to local store, make sure all light bulbs are changed out for energy efficiency, all cars have reusable bags for shopping, adjust all thermostats, throw out & recycle all non natural/organic products throughout home, start organic container gardening, and plant a tree : )

Since my birthday is Earth day, I am always coming up with resolutions. Shopping at goodwill, biking to work and running errands,. Planting a garden for the first time this year!! Not only will it be local and organic, but I will have fewer trips to the grocery store. I'm getting friends and neighbors to join me, so it's extra exciting.
