Instead of bottled water, I drink filtered tap water and carry it around in a refillable Nalgene bottle. When I go shopping, I bring my own reusable nylon bag. I compost and recycle. I reuse bags that I get from stores. If it's plastic, I line the trash can with it. With paper bags, I reuse them to give gifts. Instead of wrapping presents in giftwrap paper, I make my own with pages from magazines. I buy in bulk and it cuts down on waste. Example: I buy the largest size of Softsoap hand soap that I can find and I refill a reusable soap dispenser with it instead of buying a new ready to use size every time I run out. I use rechargeable batteries. I never use air conditioning or the heater. I walk to school and take public transportation. Carpool Energy saving lightbulbs I handwash dishes instead of using a dishwasher. I wait for a full load of laundry and do it once a week. I try to eat organic. That's all I can think of for myself. What do you ladies do?
