    I recycle, use paper bags, use an ecologist dishwasher at home, try to use bus and subway more..I think just being grateful about what we have and respectful to the nature and all the living beings is pretty much enough..

    As a former prosecutor who continually saw the same kids arrested, I started a community based program where kids from underprivileged, crime ridden communities interacted with their local precinct police officers, going on trips together and getting to know each other with the hope it would decrease the amount of crime in the ommunity. I was the founder,as well as raised all the money, planned all the events and anything else I felt was needed to make the program a success. This was my way of giving back.

    We donate clothes, food and so many other items that we no longer use. I have also taught my young son to always leave extra money on any of the rides at stores or at parks so the next child that comes along will be able to experience the fun he had. He wants to share his toys with kids that aren’t as fortunate and has a very giving spirit, which I encourage. As soon as he outgrows something, we try to to find someone who can use his clothes. Thank you.

    I have volunteered now for 8 years in SkiPatrol to rescue people & give medical assistance. I have been a member of the State Emergency Services now for 5 weeks, which assist the public at times of storms, floods & tsunamis. At home I recycle all natural waste in the garden, recycle plastic bags, all plastic & glass containers & paper/cardboard. I donate all my clothing I no longer use, recycle the kitty-litter in the garden, re-use all bubble packaging & bubblepacks/postage envelopes, & find uses for all cardboard boxes that came with purchases, rather than buy storage containers.

    I know that what I no longer need, want or use can be recycled. I fill up my hatch with misc household and clothing items and donate to the Salvation Army. I also do smaller things like bringing all of my magazines and books to the nursing home – they can not afford to buy magazines and books and love to have something fresh to look at and read. Recycling and donating really make a difference! Also, check out “freecycle.org” – it’s a great way to recycle and help each other.

    I gave away my car and now walk to work, the grocery store, and gym. I also gave up meat to lesser my carbon footprint. Now I walk to the grocery, fill up my canvas tote with local veggies, and walk home. Not only is my day-to-day good for the community, environment, and sustainability, I’ve also become healthier by making these lifestyle changes!

    Small things add up! The little things we do daily to go green and help the planet: take reusable bags to the grocery store, recycle, buy organic and we’re vegetarian (eat/buy less meat is one of the best things you can do for the planet, IMHO)

    I use re-usable totes when shopping, and we recycle. Me and my husband love to use reusable water bottles, and coffee mugs instead of throw aways. we even have our 8 month old daughter using thermos’ instead of plastic – and we buy all organic and locally grown produce when possible. weve recently updated most of our appliances to energy saver/efficient ones…small steps to the bigger picture! i’m also webmaster for a non-for-profit organization. as a family…we just try to do whats best for us, in the most loving and safe way, for a healthier and happier future!

    We recycle regularly, I try to use all natural products, we shop at farmer’s markets when we can or buy locally grown, organic foods. We also have taken to walking and riding our bikes as much as possible. We also found that we could cut back on energy use by just opening the windows instead of using air conditioning and turning off lights when we don’t need them. I also discovered how to properly recycle since most facilities do not accept hard plastic caps. I now recycle these properly.

    I live in the city and am always saddened by the garbage on my street. I’ve taken to every morning as I head out to work, taking a small garbage bag with me and making a point of picking up at least 5 pieces of trash as I walk to the subway. I’m hoping that if someone else sees me doing this, that a light bulb will go off and they will do the same, and so on!

    I recycle, use compostable garbage bags not made of plastic, shop at the local farmer’s market, try and ride my bike to work. I don’t do anything big, but in my everyday little things I try my best to save energy and be aware of what I’m consuming, how it was produced, and what impact my decisions have on the world at large. And I try and keep up with the information on how I can do more and be a more efficient and responsible consumer

    Basically, I just give back constantly. There’s such an abundance coming into my and my family’s life, both material and non material, that it just feels like the right thing to do! Materially, I give away clothes when they’re not needed, recycle, do a lot of planting, donate to my favorite charities…anything that we’re not using I try to find an alternate use for somewhere else.

    On a different level, I also try to give of myself more and more. I find great satisfaction in that – it is so true that the more you give the more you receive! So I volunteer my free time once a week in my first grader’s class, I try to smile and be friendly to people I encounter, I call friends to see how they’re doing, etc. etc. I once even bought someone I didn’t really know at the gym a keychain like mine after she admired it! Just because I knew it would make her day. And it sure did! Mine too!

    my 11 year old daughter has a charity in which we collect new and gently used teddy bears to give “HUGS!” to children in need around the world – Haiti, Iraq, Afganistan, etc.

    Of course if anyone has some to donate…please visit our site!

    Bella’s Bear Hugs

    We also recyle as much as we can, I recycle fur coats and transform them into keepsake teddy bears – if people donate furs then we create bears and donate them to raise money for our favorite charities such as FOODFORTHEPOOR and Cancer Schmancer.

    “Pay it forward” is our motto!

    We recycle everything we can including special items like electronics rather than just throwing them in the trash. Dontate clothes, glasses, and old cell phones to local charities. We participate in the community clean-up to keep our open areas clean. My children know to check all items for the recycle symbol and determine which bin it goes into in our home and the importance of concerving energy and water.

    We recycle as much as possible, save plant refuse, coffee grounds, etc., for compost, use water saving toilets and shower heads and CFLs, wash only full loads of laundry and dishes, and take our own cloth bags to the grocery store and for other shopping. I plan my errands so that I can do all of them in one trip. We support local animal shelters and welfare groups and volunteer and contribute to a local homeless shelter. Probably the most important thing we do is take in unwanted animals and give them a loving, stable, healthy home. We have seven dogs and two cats and all of them are “rescues” of some sort.

    I started a 501 c 3 non-profit organization after seeing the effects of drugs and suicide when I moved back to my home town in Hawaii. I did these to give the children and youth a positive and healthy activity to be part of. My organization teaches dance to children as young as 4 years old all the way through adult. By dancing these children are expressing themselves creatively and learning a healthy lifestyle that exercise can be fun and enjoyable! I hope to make a change by investing the youth!

    We turn off all electricity when we are not using it. Wash clothing, dishes, etc. on cold, no extra setting. Recycle, grow our own veggies, and use energy efficient appliances, lightbulbs, and more. I like Nancy, above, who rescues pets; awesome!! We have two pups and a kitty who were given to us, but may have otherwise all gone to the pound (esp. the kitty; her family ended up there.) We hand-me-down clothing, shoes, everything until/unless it does not fit someone in the family and then we donate, recycle, or give to someone in need. I mend everything! We use things up completely. I am glad to read others’ suggestions on what else to do!!

    I volunteer as a Registered Nurse for our County’s Medical Reserve Corps. I have donated my time to give immunizations to uninsured children, volunteered time to schools for their health fairs, and am on-call for any local disasters or health care needs.

    I recycle, bought an energy-efficient dishwasher and furnace, but … probably use too much water … I have a teenager and all attempts to conserve water use seems to fall on deaf ears!!!

    When my mother died at a hospice center I decided to volunteer to take care of dying hospice patients for free every other week. Beside doing the everyday patient care I read to them, give massages and at times give the patients facials and manicures. I truly appreciate how the hospice nursing staff cared for my mother and in return will do what I can for others.

    Loving nature and respecting our planet come naturally to my husband and I. We have turned our 1870 historic home into an energy efficient, earth loving, paradise. We have installed all new energy efficient windows (21 to be exact), and appliances, light bulbs, a new roof and blown celluose insulation – everything is up to mother nature’s standards now. We mainly walk more than drive, use re-usable shopping bags and buy local produce whenever possible. Additionally, we never throw any reusable items away, we donate them to St. Vincent de Paul and/or Purple Heart.

    When I was a child , I would go with my mother to visit and take things to the elderly folks in our neighborhood. Just a short visit or a piece of mom’s apple pie gave them such joy. So as an adult I’ve carried the tradition on with my children. They are off living on their own lives now but as a therapist in home health I find myself giving alittle extra time and caring to my older patients. Often times ,they are alone and just my visit can make a big difference in their lives. I think giving of myself makes my days better also.

    Recycle paper, plastic bottles, anything that can be. We donate used clothes and electronics to the VA or Salvation Army. We donate pet food and other needed supplies and monetary gifts to our local animal shelters. Walk instead of drive where and when I can.

    Every week when I have any appointments I always stop by the hospital and leave all my old magazines.
    Now when I pass by a year later even…all I see for the older people to read is the magazines I brought.

    I also ask my family and friends to save their old magazines so I can give them to people.

    And a few times on the bus a younger girl with a baby was looking at my magazine and I was done with it and asked her if she wanted my magazine…and the girl on the bus was so happy to have a new magazine to read!

    I am also nice to the older people on the bus or at the grocery store when they need help with anything like reaching packages!

    Also I buy all my meats and vegetables from the local farmer’s co-op and it is good to know my food does not travel far!
