Many ways and they are cheaper too. First, you can buy used or 2nd hand. Any thing from clothes to tools or electronics. Fix things rather than throw them away. If you keep appliance manuals they contain part numbers that are easy to get on the internet. Grow a garden or buy local produce. Reusable bags work in the produce section as well as the check out line and buy things that come with less packaging to begin with and you will have less to throw away. Use cloth napkins and rags for cleaning rather than paper.

There are a few things that can be done and we have found a company that makes it easy to do so because they make extremely concentrated cleaning products that do not contain harmful and toxic ingredients, are less costly than other products AND WORK FANTASTIC. Not only are the products safe around kids and pets, but does not harm the environment either. Saving money doesn't hurt ;-) They have cleaning products for EVERY room of the house too. They've been around for almost 30 years.
2) Get into the habit of turning off the lights. 3) Recycle, 4) Walk or ride a bike whenever possible.
