    nothing too exciting. Reusing our water bottles, reusing plastic bags or putting them in the recycle box at the store. I'm trying to get into reusable grocery bags ( thanks to Melissa ) I've been trying to get the water company to give me my dang recycling bin but they won't

    I recycle everything that I can put in the recylce container that the garbage man picks up.

    I try to find different uses for bulky things that could be reused. Plastic butter tubs for leftovers, twizzler plastic tubs for crayons and marker for the kids, etc.

    ohh the twizzler thing is a good idea. I love to use my glass jars for leftovers and sauces and stuff too.

    seattle has a very comprehensive recycling program. we are required to recycle everything & can be fined if recyclables are found in our trash. yard waste gets turned into compost & we can put our food waste with our yard waste if we want. i also take the bus to work rather than drive myself.

    We recycle everything we can. I also just bought a bunch of the resusable bags from the commissary. It was really great. This last time I went to to the commissary I did not get any of the plastic bags. Also, I keep several of those bags in my car so if I stop at WalMart or Target I have them so I don't use their plastic bags.
