Here are some tips to live Eco-friendly:
* Consider decreasing your meat consumption: more land has to be put into agricultural production and produce meat than to produce plant products. This means less 'nature' for us to play in and wildlife to live in and more. 

* Don't take notes in notebooks: use a 3 ring binder and take notes on the back of paper that needs to be recycled. Recycle after it has writing on both sides. This will save energy that goes into recycling and slow global warming.

* Buy some canvas bags and use them at the grocery store: Keep them in your car so as you don't forget to bring them. Alternatively use the plastic grocery bags as trash bags for small cans. Some stores will take bundles of plastic bags for recycling. 

* Buy food from the bulk bins at your local health food store or in some grocery store: Most food in those stores is more expensive but the bulk bins and bulk spices are often cheaper than grocery store equivalents and use less packaging. 

* Reuse things when they break: Reusing things instead of throwing them away will result in less garbage in landfills and less resource consumption. 

* Start a compost pile or bin: Toss in fruit and vegetable scraps instead of throwing those items in your garbage. This will cut down on the amount of your garbage, along with providing you eventually with some organic material of your garden or landscape plantings. 

* When a bulb burns out, replace it with a compact fluorescent light, if size permits:  These lasts far longer and use much less electricity than regular incandescent light bulbs.
