Default Re: Treading lightly on the earth

Wow. This thread is really old, but it has been the most inspiring to me, so I wanted to post my list.
We:
~Use cloth everything: bags, towels, tp (well, I do, not hubby)
~clean w/ vinegar
~use an indoor clothesline
~use CFLs
~I've gone no 'poo (less packaging)
~buy more organic
~breastfeed (hehe... just me again! )
~try to cut down on meat
~drive a really fuel efficient car (it's not really safe to walk here)
~wash baggies to reuse
~use what I have instead of buying new
~flush less
~use bar soap instead of bottled
~recycle cardboard and cans (that's all we can do here)
~reuse some cooking water to water plants (tomato and lettuce... which are not doing so well, btw, not because of the cooking water )

I'm sure there are more, but that's all I've got for now. I'd love to be able to conserve electricity more, but that's a "someday" goal. Our apartment is SO energy inefficient.
