I will try to buy more bulk items rather than those that have unnecessary packaging.

We are moving away from furniture that is not sustainably made to ones that are, and include either reclaimed materials, wood from sustainable sources, and organic materials when possible.

I'm going to bring real plates, silverware, cups and clothe napkins to our picnics and beach cookouts. Plus I'll bring extra for my friends! and, i will learn to sleep 1 degree warmer at night. (we'll see how long it takes for me to not wake up sweating!)

The Condo complex where I rent doesn't offer recycling bins. I'm going to see if the county will still provide bins for me so that I can take them to a county recycling site.

Two things One - no more paper towels for me. Will re-purpose old towels that have holes into cleaning towels and will buy cloth napkins, (or make my own) from the local thrift store. two - no more rinse agent in my dishwasher. I VERY recently discovered that white vinegar makes the BEST rinse agent. And I have used many different ones. Who knew? :^) Make every day earth day!

I removed turf from my yard and will be planting an edible garden to make better use of the land. I will also be collecting water from the shower as it warms up to irrigate the garden.

Be vigilant with myself that the first step is reducing my impact is reducing consumption.

We're going to attempt to grow the vast majority of our own vegetables this year - organically! We've already stopped buying paper towels and use cloth and we'll be using cloth diapers with our baby due June 14th :)

My resolution is to re-use more items instead of just recycling or throwing them away.

I always use my reusable water bottle but often forget my coffee mug. This year I am going to bring my coffee mug with me every time I leave the house.

I am so excited about my green efforts that I've started integrating them into the college classes that I teach; I've organized a whole class around 'Green Media Literacy' going into ways, big and small, to green up my students' lives. We focus on cosmetics (accessing the EWG's database to see the toxic levels of cosmetics) Cleaning supplies (I advocate making their own) and of course Food-we go through the Clean Fifteen, The Dirty Dozen and I have them watch the eye opening Food Inc, which really gets them inspired. Finally I touch on cutting down on single use plastics, replacing needless plastic water bottles with re-usable ones, reusable grocery bags and produce bags, and lunch containers. It's thrilling to see how excited some of my students are!

We try to use washcloths and kitchen towels only in the kitchen. We have found that we really don't need kitchen napkins or paper towels. Even when my daughter has a runny nose, she uses a soft handkerchief.It may be a small way to help the environment but I do think if every family did the same thing it would help with waste. Another things we do at work is we use real glasses and cups and plates. We have no disposable dishes.

I went vegan this month which will reduce my footprint (and guilt) tremendously! Whole food, plant based diet = ☺
