I will get the kids involved in container and in ground vegetable gardening. I have already purchased a book with step by step instructions and the kids are getting excited to eat what they grow. We will put name tags on the different veggies and see who's will flourish. The race is on......

İi am already farming my own tomatoes, zucchini and bell peppers. İ dont trash left overs and instead feed my dog. İ am cooking oven baked pasta with left over pasta, rice soup with left over rice pilaf and using left over mashed potatoe to cook a dish with eat the next couple of days. Other than that, İ stopped using bleach. İ use lemon juce and carbonated water to clean hard surfaces. For the glass İ would use apple cider, which has a strong smell nd needs airingright after. And for hair treatment İ prefer using "argan" oil to make it grow healthier and shine. Alo you can use argan oil or the face which helps anti wrinkles. Also, perfumated odors are containing a lot of chemicls so instead İ would use burning oils like jasmin flower oil or lavander flower oil.

Use natural products to clean, like vinegar, and use fewer paper towels and less water.

I'm going to try buying almost all of our food in bulk and eat unprocessed as much as possible.

We're growing vegetables in our front yard (the potatoes, herbs and broccoli are up now!), using reusable bags (including a WAY cool one that my mother-in-law crochetted out of used plastic bags), recycling and composting. We've virtually eliminated paper towels and paper napkins - and we use natural cleaning products whenever we can. :)

I plan on recycling more and buying less packaged items. Also we are putting in our garden this year. We have already started shopping at a local farmers market for produce instead of the big box stores making it not only better for the environment but better for our wallets.

I will concentrate more on avoiding products with excess packaging, and continue to take my own take away containers to restaurants from which I always have food to take home.

I am going to make things (clothes, "paper" towels, cotton squares) instead of buying them so they are reusable and cute!

I am going to put my deck to good use this year and grow some tomatoes, peppers, basil, herbs and salad greens in containers. I'm also going to commit to using my composter for table scraps even when it means going a few extra steps to do so.

Grow at least one plant (tomatoes?) and one herb, probably in containers. I have no gardening experience.

I am going to reduce my use of packaged products. I am alarmed at how much "stuff" needs to go into the garbage each week. Recycle and re-use!!

Teach my children the importance of being in harmony with the earth through gardening, composting, recycling, being less wasteful, and enjoying the simple pleasures of nature.

We are already using reusable bags for all of our shopping. Our next step is to stop buying all plastic products (baggies, water bottles, disposable cups, etc.) and instead always use reusable resources.

What produce I don't grow myself, I intend to buy from local farmers as much as possible.
