Writer's Block: Happy Earth Day

What do you do EVERY day to take care of the earth's environment? What could you do more of?


Hmm....
Well, I carpool with a classmate every day. We changed the bulbs to those better ones, I buy only organic California produce, our meat is free range and hormone free (yeah, we eat meat but at least we do that...one day I hope to become a vegetarian...), and the eggs we buy are organic. We don't use chemicals in our garden and we have a lot of flowers that attract bees and such. I recycle daily, I actually go through our bin and separate the paper and plastic and such. I turn off the faucet when I'm brushing my teeth, I use cold water when doing laundry, I take quick showers and don't put it on really hot (warm), I use cloth bags when going to the market. I turn off lights when I'm not in the room and I take my car to the car wash (they use less water then if you do it yourself, and they dispose of it in a way where the contaminated water doesn't end up in the environment).
Uhhh...oh, I don't use clay cat litter, I use recycled paper litter.

I know there's more but...I can't remember. Heh :P

What can I do? I can become a vegetarian. That would help a lot and I do want to become one, at this point in my life however, I just don't have the self discipline to become one. I could drive a hybrid but decided against getting one because of the issues they have right now. I fully plan on getting a hybrid when I get my second car (these issues might be worked out!). I could stop buying leather shoes. I don't buy anything leather except for shoes because I just can't really find any non-leather shoes for my feet. I could also use that liquid-less car wash..I actually plan on ordering that eventually ;)

Liquid-less carwash?
Do explain?

Sounds interesting, never heard of it until now.

It's better for the environment, and best if used for a small job :3

Or you could just not wash your car, like me...I am the greenest! :P
I don't eat red meat and pork so I'm on my way. Chicken is soon to be kicked out, I'm not a big fan of how sick you can get because of their living conditions, so gross. I love love love fish but I will someday delete that too from my diet. It has actually been REALLY EASY for me to give up red meat and pork. I have cravings now and then but nothing ridiculous. When I'm pregnant I will have to find other ways to stay healthy for the baby, I'm not going back to meat...:P
OOH and I don't even HAVE a cat so I'm doing a better job at being environmentally friendly than youuuu! :) hahahahaha
I have found a lot of companies make shoes that have "leather" on them, even Adidas and maybe Nike...not sure. I had a pair once that had no leather but LOOKED like it was leather. They do need to come out with prettier non-leather shoes...
