Reduce / Reuse / Recycle

Compost it! Compost helps improve soil so it holds more water and plants grow better. Allow grass clippings to stay on the lawn, instead of bagging them. The cut grass will decompose and return to the soil naturally. Food scraps and kitchen waste also make good compost, and you save money on fertilizers or other additives. More backyard composting ideas.
Composting turns food scraps and yard trimmings into natural soil additives for lawns and gardens. Read more

Proper maintenance reduces waste! Keep your appliances in good working order and follow the manufacturer's suggestions for operation and maintenance. Shop for products with high consumer satisfaction and fewer breakdowns. If kept in good working order, your appliances should last a long time and not end up as waste before their time. More ways you can reduce waste.

Don't trash it - reuse it! Be creative as you look for new ways to reduce the amount or kinds of household waste. Give cardboard tubes to pet hamsters or gerbils. Plant seeds in an egg carton. Make a flower pot out of a plastic ice cream tub. By thinking creatively, you will often find new uses for common items and new ways to recycle and reduce waste. Other creative tips to reduce waste.

List all the "environmental" things you do, GreenCarz. The advice column reads more like spamming. =; :roll: :razz: 8)

The biggest, most significant thing I do is nothing--literally nothing at all. I do it for as long as I can whenever possible. No going out and buying crap, eating as little as possible, burning as little gas as possible (I fill up about once a month as it is), and when necessary, arguing in defense of nothing when someone else requires that I do something.

"With every decision, think seven generations ahead of the consequences of your actions" This quote from Johhny Electriglide says everything and gives a line to the people that how they should spend their whole life. This is all about developing the habits of reusing, reducing or recycling not only amongst you but also in your children.
