I make sure to re-use my plastic food containers.. butter and cream cheese tubs and such. That's what makes up most of my "tupperware" actually so I feel good that I'm not just throwing all those away.<br><br><br><br>
Also the plastic box thingys that fruits and veggies come in (if you shop at Trader Joe's you know what I mean) I have used those to sprout my herb gardens in this year. They have air spaces on the side.. all you have to do is snap them shut after you plant your seeds and you've got a mini greenhouse!

i recycle everything i can. this sometimes means if i have a can of coke while out or at work i take the can home with me to recycle if there's no recycling bin nearby.<br><br>
i don't drive, i walk everywhere except for the odd time that i get a ride from the bf.<br><br>
if i need to buy something and it has a lot of unnecessary packaging i'll pick a different brand that doesn't. i buy toilet paper and tissue made from recycled materials<br><br><br><br>
i'd planned on not using any chemicals on my lawn/garden but my landlady paid to have someone take care of it and they used pesticides on it, grrrrr<br><br><br><br>
oh and i started buying phosphate-free dish soap<br><br><br><br>
interesting tip: if you have cats, when you brush them and end up with a big ball of fur, rather than throw it out if you put it outside in spring, birds will take it to use in their nests.

I wash plastic bags and reuse them. Ziploc, sandwhich bags, and the breadbags my mom stocked up on ten years ago for homemade bread all get washed out and reused if they don't have holes in them.<br><br><br><br>
I recycle everything I can in this area.<br><br><br><br>
I ride my bike to work when I can. Lately, we've been having lots of thunderstorms, and this afternoon was no exception, so I drove the car. I don't have nerves of steel yet, so I avoid riding my bike in the rain when I feel like it.<br><br><br><br>
I buy resale, thrift, and consignment store clothing.<br><br><br><br>
I post on VB instead of going out and buying things I don't need. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">
