I promise to continue using all-natural cruelty-free cleaners and will make a better effort at remembering my reusable grocery bags everytime I shop anywhere. I am also researching container gardening. I'm excited at the idea of being able to grow (some of) our own food!

RECYCLE PLASTIC BAGS and don't throw them out! If I see any around (or even some in the trash) I'll put them out and recycle them at the local grocery store.

I will pick paper cartons over plastic for my juice and milk. paper is a renewable resource and plastic sourced from petroleum. I'll do it even when my fav brands are in plastic.

since my kids were born, I have been using vinager, baking soda for cleaning. Now I incorporated lemon and melaleuca oil too. I take reusable bags to shop. We recycle at home, and my kids are even stricter than me about it. Our future goal is to move to a place where we can do more walking. The healthiest countries are the ones that people bike or walk more.

I am using herbal medicine to help with a chronic illness, that has got to be way better for the earth than what it takes to create all that chemically medication out there!

No more chemical cleaners. Also, I have switched to all organic lawn products this year. No more harmful chemicals on the lawn either!

I have switched to organic foods the past few months and am trying to switch to more organic/natural cleaning products and fertilizers this year. I am planting my first organic garden (food and floral). I am also quitting bottled water and will fill up my water bottle at work.

We need to GO GREEN. Plant a garden today. It is so much fun, and relaxing. A great way to de-stress.

I have been riding my mountain bike to work, have saved me hundres of $ in gas, keeps me well fit and healthy. I teach a free Outdoor Yoga class when nice out, to connect everyone with nature. I have lot of green plants in my home, I use lemon and baking soda to clean. Will continue with my practices as an Environmental Health Protector. Happy Earth Day!!!
