My 7 year old nephew and I are unplugging all non-essential items, turning our garden organic this year and we've added taking out the recycles to his chore list. :-)

I use white vinegar and lemon juice more. Not use plastic wrap as much either!

I want to plant a container garden on my balcony. I also frequent Farmer's Markets in the spring and summer, so I can support local, sustainable growing practices. I also need to get better at recycling...I want to recycle everything that can be recycled!!!

I resolve to bring a reusable (BPA free) water bottle to the gym with me instead of disposable water bottles. I also resolve to take all those reusable bags that I already have and actually USE THEM when I go to the grocery store (ie keep a constant supply in my car instead of in my drawers at home.)

We are planting an herb and veggie garden, using our compost and are planning to collect rain water. I have been using some natural cleaning products but want to convince everyone in my house that we don't need or want harsch chemicals like Bleach to clean. Also, talking alot to my 3 1/2 year old daughter about turning off eclectricity and saving water!!

The simple change I can make is to use less water and start using natural products while cleaning my car. Also, I've been trying to get my coworkers to use natural products.

I have seen such a difference with my allergies since using natural cleaners. Also it is a great piece of mind when you have toddlers + pets touching floors etc with safe cleaners.

I'm growing food at home this year, on my balcony -- greens, tomatoes, herbs, carrots. And I'll be saving rainwater to use for some of my watering. Or hopefully all of it!

A simple change that I have made is using a motto. It is "the richest person is the one that needs the least." I keep this in mind when I shop. Not so much for food but definitely for clothing, shoes and the kids want for plastic toys. I also use this idea in a way of not wasting what I have. Using everything to it's fullest potential.

I'm upcycling and recycling a lot things I already own or can scavenge from my job to reduce buying new.

I have been using green cleaners since my oldest started showing signs of breathing issues as a baby. He is almost ten, and has recovered completely. This year we are making some changes to our home to make it more energy efficent.

My son goes to a "green" elementary school. He has actually taught me a few things! I am working on building a community vegetable/herb garden at the end of my street. ( I live in the city). My neighbors and I can enjoy the fresh produce and save on trips to the store!

I re-use the bags that the newspaper comes in. My neighbors and friends will also save these bags and give them to me. I use them as the bags to pick up after my dog when I take him on walks. It's a great way to give them a 2nd purpose and eliminate my need to buy plastic bags to pick up after my dog.

I plan to get my friends reusable water bottles with filters for gifts this year so they will stop having to buy bottled water!

In order to go "greener" I have decided to give up fabric softener and make my own felted wool balls for the dryer! They are easy and cheap to make and are rockin' for mother earth! Baby steps like this one are great for my family and for my planet!

I reuse everything. I try to get creative and not dispose so quickly.
