Composting to recycle leaves, grass, and food scraps. Using Murphys oil soap and vinegar for everything, instead of a potentially poisonous cleaner. Coordinating a Computer & Electronics Recycling and Paper Shred Event at my work.

We are getting rid of our clothes dryer and will hang up all our laundry on racks in the back yard. It will smell better and we won't be using all that energy from the dryer.

Hopefully, I'll win, but if not, I'll probably find a recipe and make my own.

We are going to start collecting rain water and will use it to water our organic garden that we are planting for the first time.

We are going to make our own herbicide out of vinegar and salt instead of using chemicals.

I plan to dump my used car oil in the culvert behind my house: _ HAD been dumping it in my backyard but I'd like to go green and I know that a good rainstorm will wash the oil away out of my sight and I won't have to kill my grass any longer. Win-win!

Try to buy used items, such as going to consignment stores, which would also help local small business owners as well.

I plan to continue doing something I have done in the past but I resolve to do it more frequently this year...leave the lights off when I am taking a shower or using the bathroom...we all know where everything is right?

We are trying to save as much water as we can from our showers, cooking and dishwashing to use on our garden

I resolve to take shorter showers. I' ve been using them as my quiet time away from my kids but I really waste alot of water by taking long showers.

I'm riding my bike to work everyday. I just started a job which increased my commute, meaning a 45 minute bike ride each way. That's a 90 minute workout 5 days a week, fewer gas emissions from my car, less stress from being stuck in traffic, and more money in my pocket!

I carry a leather purse that opens wide into a tote and I am able to put my groceries, wine, etc in my purse/bag. I'm saving the earth from plastic bags! :)

Water! I want to convince my family that it's okay to not flush every time, to maybe pee in the shower, to turn off the water while brushing teeth and doing dishes, water plants with leftover water from glasses, and, and, I would LOVE to get a rain gutter collection barrel.
