I had a friend who owns a tractor to cut me a garden this year. I have also started recycling most of the things I usually throw away..coffee grounds, egg shells, unused steamed vegtables & herbs for compost. If Whole Foods encourages even a handful of people every year, we have started to move in the right direction. Happy Earth Day everybody !! I am in hopes that I can win the pkg Whole Foods is offering as I would LOVE to have natural cleaning products to carry over into my home as well....Thanks for all you do, Whole Foods !

I just bought a raised bed patio garden and several varieties of organic seeds to try to grow my own organic vegetables and herbs!

We're planting a container garden this year and have increased household recycling now that the city provides cans and pick up.

Work on reducing the amount of packaged products in our house, and recycle those we do use.

My 5yr old daughter and I will plant our very own vegetable garden. I want her to taste vegetables for what they are without manufactured seasonings and salts. All Natural and from the Earth! :-)

I plan to plant a garden this year and composite the organic materials. I already recycle everything that is taken in the area and try to always use reusable bags when shopping. Happy Earth Day everyone!

I'm starting a small garden on my second floor balcony. Use less plastic baggies at home.

We re-use cottage cheese, parmesan, feta, peanut butter, coffee cans and other containers with lids, instead of tupperware or gladware. They also have household uses beyond the kitchen! Those peanut butter jars are great for storing household items, like nails and bits because they are clear and everything is visible.

My adult sons (who work long weird hours) do not recycle, so I have started taking steps to get them to recycle by putting boxes in each room for them to throw papers, plastic, cans etc and then I sort the boxes. This is still new to them but it is better then me "nagging" at them all of the time.

I'm planting an organic vegetable garden again this summer, and have an ambitious goal of having more recycle bags than garbage bags on the curb each week for pick up! I'm also saving my #5's to drop off when I go to Whole Foods from now on.

The whole reason my husband & I recently moved to Portland, OR is because it is one of the few places in the U.S. where you can live without a car, easily purchase locally grown/made foods, support the many locally owned businesses, compost all food scraps, recycle almost everything, raise chickens in your backyard, etc. We are doing everything we can to minimize our environmental footprint, so I resolve to "spread the word" to my family & friends to get more people to take eco-friendly steps to save the Earth!

We started composting last year and will be using it in our flower/plant beds and start a veggie garden this year! :)

I love this idea! There are a lot of things I'd like to change to be more eco-friendly. I already recycle, donate clothes regularly, shop at thrift stores, repurpose things I have before going out and buying things I need, and use my own water bottle daily instead of buying bottled water. However, there are still tons of things I could be doing. For this challenge, I will stop using paper towels and plastic zip-lock baggies. Instead, I will use washcloths I have laying around the house and use the glass tupperware more.
