Default What things do you do to be more 'green'

I know plenty of chazzers are as green as they can manage, so I'm just curious what exactly you do to be green at YOUR house. List out as many things (big or small) you may inspire someone else who hadn't thought of that particular way yet!

1. I use reusable shopping bags.

2. I recycle EVERYTHING that I can possibly recycle each week.

3. We use actual lunch boxes and containers.

4. I make our laundry soap WITHOUT harsh detergents.

5. I use vinegar instead of fabric softener, window cleaners, and in place of MANY other cleaners around the house.

6. We keep the heat set at 68....too cold? Too bad...Get a sweater.

7. Shut down the computers each night.

8. I do try to keep lights off in rooms not being used...........sometimes in this house of teens it feels like a losing battle!

9. I can and freeze in season fruits/veggies reusing jars and containers.

There's probably more that I'm not thinking of ATM. The following are things I'm going to attempt this summer:

Composting, gray water reusage for the lawn/plants, and a rain barrel.

Please share yours!
