What do you do in your daily life to live sustainably?

I am curious what people on these forums do on a daily basis to live more sustainably.

Maybe it's something as simple as using your own mug when you get coffee each morning.

Or maybe you are a total hippie who lives at one with the earth. (Although, you probably would not be driving a Mazda 3 if that were you )

Or maybe you do nothing at all and would rather run over all the hippies in your Hummer while throwing a Big Gulp cup out the window on your way to a plastic bag factory.

So let's hear um!

Re: What do you do in your daily life to live sustainably?

i drink filtered water at home (rather than buying hundreds of bottles a year).
does that count?

Totally counts! Bottled water is crazy bad.

I re-use condoms and use the Oklahoma credit card for gas. Saves a grip!

Re: What do you do in your daily life to live sustainably?

The cost effectiveness of using your own mug to get coffee is hardly worth it. You have to use the same mug over a thousand times to make any difference than the impact of a paper cup. (Due to the water waste from washing the reusable mug and such)

I have canvas bags I use for grocery shopping. They hold a lot more and I dont have to deal with all the crap plastic bags in my house..

lol, i need those bags for dog dookie! :P

i would think a mug is better than throwing away a bunch of styrofoam cups each day.
