    I use only CFL bulbs and always recycle them.

    I like that saving energy and resources equates to saving money.

    I try to run all of my errands in as few trips as possible! I like to think I'm saving wear and tear on the car and tires, as well as saving the $ for fuel

    I once had an energy audit of the house done by a rep from our city's electric company. The man suggested I plug small air leaks (double-hung windows where the windows meet, etc.) using grocery store shopping bags! I checked in the basement for places where air was sneaking in, too. Careful- don't use near hot water heater or furnace if they can melt. I also found a way to make "sausages" out of them for draft dodgers at the bottom of the doorways. I've been using plastic bags this way for years. I really makes a difference.
