Good stuff, it all helps Mixie. I group my trips and plan a shorter route, saves me gas money and time and of course reduces my car emissions. Hey get some friends to join, let's see what kind of a list we can get so each of us can keep doing better at sustainable living.
Carpooling is a big one for me. But if I can I simply stay home rather then going to the store for one or two things. I'm using reusable grocery bags but have also been conscious of the plastic bage I use in the store for fruits and veggies. I keep the old ones in the reusable bags and use them again on the next trip.
Hey MiddleWay, I do a lot of that too. Trying to avoid AC this summer but working on the 3rd floor makes it hard when it gets over 90 degrees, but I have tried cool packs and a fan. Most days I can do without it. I am not a veggie entirelybut I am eating less meat too. Its all good stuff and I support environmental causes as much as I can. I donated to the Gulf Oil Spill Fund on this site. People are not helping people as much as they could with this disaster, think they might be thinking well its up to BP. But meanwhile, families are loosing homes, moving away, dumping pets, have health problems and I feel for them a lot. Anyone care to match my donation, it is $20 but you can give $5 minimum. See you in donations?
buying less which results in throwing away less, recycling more, becoming vegetarian (eating less meat), driving a high mpg vehicle and trying to combine trips, carpooling when possible, shorter showers, fans instead of a/c, putting on more clothes before heating the house, reusable grocery bags, enjoying the local outdoors more.
