Waste Reduction
My Ecochallenge: 

During Earth Week 2012, I will:

* Bring my own reusable mug every time I buy coffee/tea on the go
* Watch the STORY OF STUFF
* Reduce paper by arranging for e-billing and statements instead of mailed paper copies.
* Bring my own bags every time I shop
* Avoid bottled water/juices/liquids and instead use a reusable mug or thermos
* Start a compost to reduce the amount of trash my household produces
* Think and buy second-hand - books, clothes, furniture, and more are easy items to find
* Clean out my home of unused appliances, items, clothes and donate them
* Use only natural or organic cleaning products or try making my own
* Reuse paper use by printing on both sides
* Reduce the amount of unwanted mail I receive (stop unwanted catologs, stop junk mail)

Why I'm participating in the Ecochallenge: 

It is important to me that we change our lifestyles to reduce further damage to the earth.

My Ecochallenge: 

I will try to ride my bike to work every day next week.  I want to use less gas, cause less pollution and lose weight!

Why I'm participating in the Ecochallenge: 

It is time for America to become more responsible for the condition of the earth.  If everyone made one change for the better each year, the impact would be huge.
