We can all be inspired by some of the great ideas shared:
Host clothing swaps with friends to promote recycling outfits and decrease buying new clothes - Hannah in Orlando
Collect acorns and tree seeds when walking and nurture them over the winter. In the Spring, they'll be ready for planting. Pass them to friends, family and co-workers - Wendy in Lyndhurst
Use melamine plates, bowls and cups in the backyard instead of paper plates for the summer. They are easy to wash and re-use - Cheryl in Colorado Springs
The earth, like our bodies can actually heal itself. It is wonderfully made. The earth was prepared for indefinite human habitation so never discard trash on the floor, road, out the window, or any other place - Desiree in Garfield Heights
Compost your coffee grinds, eggshells and vegetable clippings into the garden to help enrich the soil and grow stronger healthier plants - Dianna in Cortland
Use reusable shopping bags at the grocery store and carry a reusable bag when shopping at the mall and use it instead of their store bags - Carole in Riverview
Offer to pick up recycling for a family member or friend who wouldn't recycle otherwise - Rosanne in Wickliffe
Plant bee friendly and drought resistant bushes and flowers in the yard. Bees are so good for our environment and because I live in California where there is a lack of water, the drought resistant plants help save water! - Jennifer in Rancho Cordova
BYOC - Bring Your Own Containers. Bring reusable containers with lids to restaurants when dining out. Instead of using Styrofoam or paper containers used by the restaurants, take your leftovers in your own containers - Yan in Cleveland Heights
Use email instead of paper. Use the double sided feature on the copier whenever possible - Fela in Austin
Start your own vegetable garden with the kids. Plant cucumbers, tomatoes, thyme and more. It's a great way to save money and eat healthy - Deandria in Brandon
