Isn't there a better way than accepting disposable hand-wipes at restaurants? http://goo.gl/VJ5sxA

I have taught my kids to look at things normally thrown out and say what is a better way to use this item again today. This is my first tip because it opens up young minds to think beyond limits.

If you are looking for education in the field of environmental studies or anything ecologically-related, there are scholarships available. The following is an example: http://www.plushbeds.com/PlushBeds-Green-Scholarships/Advantages-of-a-Green-Lifestyle-Scholarship/

Make 'living green' the norm for your children and household

When branches fall from the trees in and around my yard, I collect them, strip off the leaves for the compost pile and cut the branches and twigs to firewood and kindling for our home fireplace.

I live in apartment with no yard. I've begun growing houseplants indoors. For Christmas this year, I bought a Norfolk pine tree and decorated it. I'll have it for many years, and won't be cutting a tree down each year, nor will I be buying an artificial tree.

I have since stopped applying chemicals to the weeds around my home instead,I allow them grow up to a tolerable level and when the need to cut arises, i work it personal without any chemical whatsoever

A combination of vinegar and baking soda make an excellent natural scrub for the bathtub, sinks and toilet. Plain vinegar is a great all around cleanser all over the house.
