I Have always been green.
I Recycle and Reuse everything that I can...I even take others recyclables out of the garbage.
I take shorter showers and sometimes baths.
I turn the water off while washing my face or brushing my teeth.
i Grow a garden and compost
I try to use and fix what I have and not just run out and buys something new.
I dont use plastic bags...I use green bags at the grocery and other stores.
I buy at goodwill...and amvets stores like that.
I buy books at the used store or go to the library.
try not to take the car as much...bike or walk.
try to reduce use or air conditioning and heat.
I use a lunch carrier instead of throwing a brown bag away each day.
I have a water bottle...but still buy bottled water..but make sure to always recycle no exceptions!!
It wasnt hard for me at all...didnt have that many problems..took some getting used to but after that its great to know that you are making a difference in the world...and thats what I have always wanted to do.
