What is your conservation effort?

Alaska, of course. I was a little miffed, to say the
least, when those wuses in Congress agreed to let Bush
drill in Alaska. I signed numerous petitions to
prevent that.
I recycle a lot too.

I reuse, I recycle, I hand down and accept hand-me-downs, and I try to limit my consumption of non-renewable resources.

I lobby for environmental causes--starting with the need for responsible consuming.

I try, in vain most times, to conserve my own sanity. Wife and two kids drive me crazy! Just kidding. Mainly recycling paper and cans and the such is the most I do.

Recycling. Using reusable items (e.g. cloth towels) rather than paper ones.

I can't think of anything.

I live in Michigan, so I return all my cans and bottles. It's 10 cents each and it adds up.

My kids wear hand-me-downs and play with handed down toys, which I then donate to charity. I buy used books and then usually donate them back to the library I bought them from.

Oh, I know! I breastfeed. I eat food and drink water and my body produces milk for my child. There are no bottles to buy or wash, no formula to process or package, no packaging to fill up landfills.

Well, I'm an environmental engineer, so I'd like to think that a lot of what I do on an everyday work basis (wetland remediation, environmental Impact assessments) is helping the conservation effort. Other than that, I recycle, I have a compost bin, I order parasitic wasps to help control fly infestation in my barn, I raise guinea fowl to take care of ticks...I'm strictly opposed to pesticides. Also, I'm a member of my local freecycle organization. Check out to see if there's one in your area! http://www.freecycle.org/
