Have you started making changes in your life? Are you becoming more "green?" Share your stories here.
An easy change-when asked at dinner red or white wine-say green as in locally grown, good for local business and better for you.

My family has been "green" long before it was the thing to do. We rearely use zip locks bags, a huge waste, we use tupperware or other types of containers for storage. We use paper or throw away plates maybe once or twice a year. Empty butter containers, etc. become storage. Nothing goes to waste, a rusty pie tin becomes a garden decoration. When you look at an item in your home, look for the use after it's original use, you will surprised and amazed at what treasures you actually have.

I have been focused on reduction for about 4 years now. Decluttering and trying to use less overall, not buying all of the extra things, and resisting the urge to buy just one more of something or items that only serve one purpose (especially if it is only used once in a blue moon). Likewise, if I can find an item that is reusable or allows me to do something without creating waste that is great!

I always wash out margarine tubs and use them in the freezer, old pantihose make great ties in the garden. My husband uses yoghurt pots to store screws in, my son's wife decants the soap liquid into a spray bottle so you use less. old envelopes are great for shopping lists.
