So, to that end I've:
Made my own deodorant.
Used reusable shopping bags almost everywhere I shop.
Started shopping almost exclusively at Whole Foods and we are looking into joining a Consumer Supported Agriculture group next spring to get more local foods--along with hitting up the Worthington Farmers Market.
Started a compost pile.
Tried our hand (somewhat unsuccessfully) at gardening.
One place I think I can do even better is eliminating throw-away products from our house. Paper towels, plastic silverware, dryer sheets, wrapping paper, the list goes on and on.
Lately, I've been seeing a lot of cool ideas, fun projects, and useful products to help with my goal.
This site has some good stuff: http://www.reuseit.com/.
One of the hardest is going to be giving up paper towels and napkins. Lots of other people have taken on this challenge too.
Another project I want to try is making these felted dryer balls.
I'll let you know how they come out.
