My resolution is to start composting. I thought it would be difficult but I spoke with a friend on Sunday who's doing it and am very excited to start composting. Think of all the garbage I can turn into fertilizer for my gardens!

we will be switching to a 50+% raw diet. We are already vegan, but what's better for the planet than ALL NATURAL foods. No wrappers, no electricity for heating, no nothin'. Just simple glorious food enjoyed just as Mother Nature itended!

I will use all non-toxic and environmentally friendly cleaners in my home. I will also use fewer paper towels to clean with!

I will use reusable grocery bags and avoid using plastic ones! Also, instead of driving, I will travel by bike or by public transportation!

This year I have been making a significant effort to steer my family into a more natural way of eating and living, especially since my husband has recently discovered that he is gluten intollerant. WholeFoods has become a staple in our household, as your store is one of the leading retailers who offer not only gluten free, but also GF organic products. My Earth Day resolution is to begin full on recycling in my household. I am purchasing recycle bins and am instructing my children in the importance of recycling habits. I'm very excited about going green this year!!

I'm trying to turn off the lights more. I'm really bad about leaving them on in our basement playroom when we're not down there.

My resolution: To minimize getting deliveries or take-out. All the containers tend to pile up into a mass of garbage that can't be recycled. I would much rather invest more time in cooking at home and reduce the amount of waste.

I leave all my reusable bags in the car & use them every time I shop....not just grocery stores but Target, drugstores, clothing stores, etc.

We are planning on switching to cloth napkins. I have been slowly stocking up and can't wait.

We have made a concerted effort to use refillable plastic bottles for water.. Used to buy tons of water in bottles. It was great to have for my children's friends when they come over. Now I have bottles with each child's name on it and some new so when new friends come by we put their names on it and they use them.. It's hot in the Fresno, Ca where I live so these come in handy...

Remember to take in (enough) and use reusable bags *every* time I go in the grocery store. I'm up to about 50% of the time now - time for the rest of the way!

We have been really making an effort to use cloth diapers but with 3 in diapers and 6 kids total, makes for much more laundry. I pledge that I will use cloth diapers for all the kiddoes and not buy anymore sposies.

I pledge to carry foldable canvas bags with me everyday in case I buy something so I can avoid using plastic Bags

My employer bought everyone a drinking glass (with the company name on it of course) to use for drinking water at the office instead of continuously buying bottled water or using styrofoam cups. So, since I have this great new glass I will now use that for water instead of bottled water or styrofoam cups.

I pledge to turn the lights off when I leave the room as well as teaching my 4 year old about water conservation. He asked so I'm telling!

I vow to carry foldable canvas bags with me on a daily basis to avoid having to use plastic ones when I buy things.

I will always use my Klean Kanteen instead of just once in a while. Every bottle not put into a landfill makes a difference!

I will be more conscious of my use of water. From the way to I wash dishes to the obscene amount I use to bathe my son. Specifically I will turn the water off when I would normally let it run.

I am committing to no longer accept plastic bags and will keep at least 2 or more canvas grocery bags in the car with me at all times.

I am building a rain barrel to water my garden in which I am growing organic veggies. I also changed all my bulbs to CFL.

I will finish building my barrel composter and use the green kitchen scraps for the garden. I will also email my mayor about paying my water & trash bill online instead of through a paper billing system. And recycle my old batteries.

I plan on walking and taking public transportation whenever it is possible to do so. I recycle and will continue to encourage others to do the same.

I'm using cloth diapers and cloth baby wipes 100% of the time. I'm going to have my husband hang our clothes line outside again and try letting the sunshine and fresh air dry our clothes instead of the clothes dryer. I purchased reusable water bottles to refill for our entire family so nobody has a reason to buy plastic water bottles. We can simply fill with our filtered water from home.
