- Turn off the lights when you leave a room.
- Turn off your car when idling for more than a minute.
- Take shorter showers.
- Bring your own reusable grocery bags to the market (I use Envirosax).
- Bring Your Own reusable utensils/mugs, rather than using disposable ones.
And one more thing... on keeping with the green theme.. my last day in DC was spent out on the National Mall at the Solar Decathlon. It was awesome, and now I totally want to build a house incorporating all the renewable energy/materials/resources and environmentally friendly products they've used in their homes.
