Just asking how many people out there are green people? Do you recycle? Do you save energy? Do you reuse items? Do you but cloth bags? Do you use electric car? Do you avoid smoking? Do you protest about people who harm the planet? etc. I save power, I turn everything I can when I'm not around, I recycle paper, I avoid throwing away batteries, I use cloth bags when I go to the groceries store, I'm not using plastic bags, I'm planning on using that half electric half fuel car. How green are you?

I recycle. if I can reuse an item, I might, I do have cloth bags, but I like to get the plastic ones so I can reuse them in the trash cans or to collect cans to recycle I don't have an electric car, I turn off most stuff, but if I'm going to be working in a room, I'll turn the ac on to get it cooled off before I work in it.

Why don't you use the windows instead? Air conditioners require a lot of energy...

I turn things off all the time. I recycle things at our local transfer station. I try to always bring my cloth bags shopping and I read magazines at the library to save paper. We take walks, pick up cans when we do to recycle them.

You sure try your best if you pick up cans when you take a walk! I really admire people like you, I sometimes wish the whole world would be like that, but that's nearly impossible. Need I mention that being green saves tons of money? In my country, for example, recycling cans will give you $0.5 per can or a bottle, saving electricity and water saves money from the monthly bills.

I concern about the environment. Most of the time I will use the public transportation like bus and subway. And Everyday I go to work and go home on foot. It is much more environmental, isn't it?:) And I can also regard it as my daily exercise. I always keep a cloth bag in my handbag. So if I buy something, I can use my own cloth bag rather than the plastic bags from the stores. I don't smoke at all. I try to use less paper. In brief, I try my best to do something good for our planet. I love China

Wow, I how could I miss the use of public transformation? That is also an act of green. :) Also, I am saving paper and water, myself as well. It's good to have people like on on our planet!
