1) No (At least not enough to matter. We had a municipal recycling program for a while, but it was shutdown.)
2) Yes
3) Yes
4) Yes (I think your number is low. Wouldn't be surprised to find out a quarter of that number are harvested within a 125 mile radius of my house.)
5) Yes
6) Yes. None at home, unless you count the dogs.
7) Yes
8) Yes (if you mean a sod roof )
9) Yes. Most laundry detergents have very little impact compared to the phosphate-based formulas of not-so-long-ago, so that means Unilever, &c. Most plastic car parts are now marked for recycling and car engines pollute much less.

Yes Yes (I used Franmar Soy Gel to strip a piece of furniture, thinking offhand) Yes (of course, everything that has a positive impact will also have a slightly negative one as well) Yes Yes (So can some sewage, grey water systems) No Yes Yes (There's a problem with this in arid climates, you have to water the grass, unless you either build underground or into a hill.) No
