* Bring my own reusable mug every time I buy coffee/tea on the go

* Bring my own bags every time I shop

* Use only natural or organic cleaning products or try making my own
* Reuse paper use by printing on both sides
* Reduce the amount of unwanted mail I receive (stop unwanted catologs, stop junk mail)
