my room has two big windows, so i keep my lights off during the day, and try to turn off all the (unessesary) lights. i also just recycled all the empty shampoo bottles, and my acne med container. Austin just got the unsorted recycling, so now we can recycle almost all plastic as well as boxboard, cardboard, glass, newspaper, etc.

i didn't say they were people, i just said that exept them and some other suicidal people, we want to live!!

oh yeah, now that the gas prices are lower, people have been buying SUVs again. why!?!?!

message 31: by Andrea (new)

Andrea Kulman (andreakulman) | 10 comments You are all doing so well with keeping it GREEN. WAY TO GO TEAM!!! I volunteered to collect popcans at my 8 year olds school. I returned them to the store and got .10 a can. I am in Michigan and we have bottle deposits. I know not all states do and that is a shame. It's a GREAT way to motivate people to recycle. My 18 year old daughter and her bf collect scrap metal from wherever- side of the road etc. and take it to a scrap yard where they actually pay her for the metal they bring in.

message 32: by Karina (new)

Karina well...i recylce paper and bottles and cardboard and cans and plastic and those little plastic lids.

we only have energy efficent lightbulbs in our house and have recyled lined paper. we don't have the water on while we bursh our teeth. we always have to turn of the lamps when they're not in use. oh and our bathroom only has one lightbulb instead of the four small ones...i think its beacuse the others ran out but nobody's changed it.

yeah...thats like all we do so far.
