1. I do use many green products at home and recycle as much as I can.

2. One of the worst things I see in polluting the environment is trash being thrown in our waterways and down sewers. I see it all the time and it really makes me sick. We need to be more conscious about the world in which we live.

Your photos are beautiful, I really like the last one.

We recycle as much as possible including our yard debris. We avoid buying products with excess plastic packaging when we can. We also save gas by consolidating errands.

I think you summed it all up with your last word .... indifference.

1) We use the water filter from the faucets instead of the water bottles. Recycle everything we can. Plant trees and gardening. Volunteer to clean creeks in our state, and etc. BTW- my SO has a career in Environmental so needless to say we are so very environmentally absorbed.
2) So bad is the waste of material things. Throwing away old things to buy new things even though they are working fine. There are somethings I can see being necessary, but I think we do it too much in the US.

1) Cut down on electricity usage by unplug the outlets that not often in use.

2) Trash..trash everywhere, is the most terrible thing for our environment, especially plastic.

1. We take our things to the recycling center, since we don't have pickup. We also buy some things used. I have been trying to take 5 minutes showers.

2. I think it's actually the small things we do daily that are most damaging, because they add up in a big way. Such as throwing away a piece of paper, when I could put it in my recycling stash, you know? Small steps really do make a big difference.

I tried to clean my house with homemade things that we already have such as bleach and vinegar solutions, and catching rain water for the garden.

The most damaging to the earth are plastic of all kind that people just toss out without thinking..

I love to recycle and my family thinks I do it too much. Old Kleenex boxes store plastic bags which can be used when shopping at food warehouses. I also gift the boxes to thrift stores along with used newspapers. Plastic containers become planters, bird feeders, spray bottles, or are recycled. Leftovers are prepared anew in new dishes. Rinds are grated and used as seasoning or used for potpourri or plant food. Egg shells and coffee grounds are fed to plants. I love reusing.
