When I can I ride my bicycle to work instead of driving my car. I have an herb garden, flower bed and several berry bushes. I compost, and pick up trash along my road. I have raised my children to respect mother earth, my daughter has a vegetable garden , herb garden ,flower beds and several berry bushes along with fruit trees. But one of the things that I am most proud of is my son's research project...I hope you post this web address so that everyone can see what he has developed for...

My wife and I recycle everything and anything we can; we often pick up after others; we did a project for our M.Div. on God's creation; and have a resource to share on ways and means.

I recycle, give old clothes to charity rather than throwing them away, use my computers spare processing power to predict global warming progress using BOINC, use eco friendly products including "Faith In Nature" floor cleaner and dishwasher soap, bio degradable silk dental floss and non aerosol deodorant. Turn heating off at night, always shower instead of taking a bath, very diligent in turning lights off when not in use and replacing broken bulbs with the most energy efficient models...

Turn heating off at night, always shower instead of taking a bath, very diligent in turning lights off when not in use and replacing broken bulbs with the most energy efficient models available. Re-use plastic drinking bottles rather than buying bottled water. Use a compost heap. Have a water butt for watering the garden. Placed insect habitats in the garden. Feed the birds. Use replaceable toothbrush heads so as to minimise wasted plastic, use an old fashioned "safety razor" for the same reason.

I am growing a garden and I use re-usabble bags when shopping. I am vegetarian and I belong to a CSA.

I live in the centre of Italy. This year we are suffering from droughts so water is getting precious. My husband and I are recycling all the water from domestic use to water our garden.

My story is very simple: I took the pledge and I received an e-mail saying that this pledge I took reached the goal of 20,000 pledges and now $20,000 will be donated to Ocean Conservancy. I'm really happy, because I'm part of this and God and Mother Mary just let me help this cause.

We have formed a group here in Cole Camp, Missouri called Friends of the Monarch. We have given out around 2o flats of milkweed in order to help save the Monarch, King of the butterflies. We are getting ready for the breeding season and their journey back to Mexico for the winter. They are becoming endangered due to the loss of milkweed, genetically engineered corn and the loss of their roosting sites in Mexico. If you are interested in helping go to journeynorth.org
