As our contribution, we seldom use lights simultaneously. We grow plants in our backyard and we joined an environmental organization.

Using recycle bag while going for shopping is one of the best way to reduce the production of plastic bags!! As you know, once a plastic bag is produce it will stay forever in this beautiful earth no matter what you try to do, burning them, dispose them or etc Beside that, if possible use electronic device such as email to reduce the use of paper.

I try to keep lights off during the day and shut off computers and electronics at night. I am not sure if this is a true fact or not but I unplug cell phone chargers and any appliance cords from the wall as much as possible. I hear that even if the appliance is turned off, it may be using energy if plugged in.

We only use lights that are necessary and we keep the AC as low as possible and not be miserable. We try to do all errands at once and try to keep them combines. We don't buy things in plastic when possible and recycle the cans and plastic.

We are growing our own vegetables and trying to conserve energy. We only have air conditioning in our bedroom. We turn it on a little while before we go to bed and then turn it off while we sleep. It's not much but I hope it helps.

We try to conserve energy as much as possible. Use lights only when we need to, and dont leave them on when not in the room. No dishwasher, keep the air conditioner set to 79 or 80, car pool when we can, we plant a tree, flowers, or bush every year, i grow vegetables but not with much success.

I'm affraid hat all I do in this way is just turning the lights off in the room when I leave it. I don't even have a garden to plant a tree in it, hehe.
