This season I am going to use organic soil in my garden (vs traditional). PLUS I have a new juicer, which I am buying more and more organic fruits and veggies (looking forward to growing my own). I will be using the pulp from my juicer in my garden & using as fertilizer! Reduce, reuse, recycle!

I will try to recycling more, such as plastic bags, and reducing the amount of trash I tend to throw away.

I will check the air pressure on my truck tires weekly. Proper air pressure in car tires saves gas and extends the tire life which saves on fuel and rubber and the steel used in the belts. Its a three fold green machine savings.

I am adding a bucket to the shower stall to collect water during my showers. I will then use the water in my garden.

I have purchased reusable produce bags so I don't have to use the plastic ones in stores. For the bulk section, I am going to wash and reuse the small bags they use there.

I am continuing to recycle all plastic bags even food grade at Natural Grocers - they take all. I will continue to remove recyclable items from my alley dumpters and place in the city recycle containers . . . I am planting a raised bed garden and fertizling with compost from my bin . . . I will continue to recycle cell tels, shoes, and corks at Whole Foods . . . also no more fabiric softeners - vinegar and baking soda work!

Hopefully try to cut down on waste by composting along with recycling which we already do. And purchase reusable glass bottles for water instead of the bottled water we purchase. Last but not least, support local--go to more farmers markets this year.

My daughter wants to plant a container garden. It will be fun to care for it with her and watch our garden grow :-)

The simple change I'm making is to recycle my plastic bottles and food jars by using them as containers or flower pots.

To make my home "greener" each day! Everytime our family needs to replace something in our home, or are planning a new purchase we are look for the most sustainable and healthy option. Replacing a PVC shower curtain with a duck cloth or EVA one instead. Replacing our plastic Tupperware with glass containers etc. It feels great!

I will continue to recycle and learn to compost for a container garden. I am using vinegar for cleaning windows and mirrors... and based on earlier comments by others will make my own fabric softener.

We use white vinegar for cleaning. Research it! Simple and green.

Shorter showers, eating locally-produced foods, keeping the thermostat set a little higher this summer.
