Convert to more natural cleaning and body care products.

Take a walk and pick up recyclables.

Hang your wash instead of using the dryer.

Unplug things you aren't using. emoticon

As you're shifting into "spring mode" (whether that means doing your spring cleaning, changing what's in your closet from winter to spring clothes, etc.) categorize everything into piles like: sell, donate, recycle, trash. You can reduce your trash and maybe make some money!

Buy as much used as you can, so when you really need something new, you can purchase it.


But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31 KJV


"Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go." Is 48:17

Make every car trip count by combining tasks and errands in one car trip.
This one is green and saves you greenbacks too!

Recycle plastic bags at Publix and other stores that offer it.

Plant a small garden in your yard.

Have a barrel to catch rainwater for watering plants.

Earthday is my birthday, so easy to remember:)
* Bring your own bags to the store.
* Drop off used magazines at a local hospital or thrift store.
* Buy "new" clothes at said thrift store (in the next smallest size, of course!)
* Purchase fresh veggies instead of packaged or canned ones
* Compost veggie scraps
