  • Join a local lending library, barter or swap to avoid buying new
  • Get off junk mail lists and “go paperless” for monthly statements
  • Reduce waste to landfill by recycling plastic, glass, paper, metals, electronics, batteries, clothes, and shoes
  • Properly dispose of hazardous waste, toxic substances, and medicines
  • Buy only environmentally preferable products or encourage a policy at your office
  • Buy quality products that last (clothes, toys, furniture, shoes)
  • Share things you don't use every day (car, vacuum cleaner, tools, etc.) with your neighbors
