Step 4: Miscellaneous
The previous are the two main categories but there are also things that don't really fit into those categories. Here are some of them.
-Use a reusable lunch bag to reduce waste from paper bags
-Use a "pause" shower head and pause while you are soaping up to save unneeded water
-Take shorter showers
-Gollect rain for free (and green) water
-Use reusable canvas or fabric shopping bags
-Wash laundry in bigger loads to use less water
-Compost to save food from the landfill and get free mulch
-Donate your old clothes, don't waste them
-Buy organic, local food, it is better for the environment, it supports your local farmers, and
saves emissions on transport
-Buy green products because, well, they're green!
-Use eco-jewelery, and things that you can make yourself, like hemp
-Recycle batteries rather than throwing them out
-Get a green computer that uses less energy (like from this contest!)
-Set your computer to go to sleep so that it is not using energy while idle
-Set your dishwasher on energy saver and turn of the "pre-rinse" which isn't needed as long
as there is nothing big still stuck on things
-Buy stuff used, at garage sales, freecycle, Craig's List, etc.
-Save paper. Don't print things unless you must, or will use it more than one time. Try to keep
things on the computer
-And last but not least... make stuff from Instructibles to reuse items and recycle by yourself
