going vegan saves more energy, water, pollution, pesticides, etc than all these ways combined.

the two most interesting (and often overlooked according to me) methods are : (1) Maintain your appliances.....and (2) Get a draught excluder

We are close to zero (0) waste & proud of it! TY, Frans! Was kind of surprised that there was not more about composting in this article.

use vinegar and baking soda to clean - cheap and green, and the kids can help!

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Frans because you have done so within the last day.

Go Green and Save Green with a Hand Held Bidet Sprayer. The easiest and best thing you can do. It requires no new plumbing or electric. The Bidet Sprayer will pay for itself many times over in toilet paper savings which makes this a very smart and green thing to do. Available at .

I love draught excluders but they must be used to work. I found some that have a bag (tube?) on each side of the door and therefore move with it. No more having to put them back all the time. If you are making your own use a thin, slick fabric at least for the connecting piece.
