Being Green

I was thinking the other day about all the things we do to be green and to do our part for the environment. It makes me feel happy that we're doing something good for the Earth and that maybe it will help it be a better place for our children and grandchildren. Some of these things include:

-Hanging clothes on the clothesline to dry whenever possible
-Cloth diapering
-Buying local food when possible which means we also eat in season
-Going to Frenchy's for second hand clothes
-Scouring kijiji whenever we need something instead of buying new
-Recycling (ok, both recycling and composting are things we're required to do but we'd probably do them anyway even if the law said we didn't have to)
-We only drive one car
-Heating our home with wood instead of electricity
-We're considering planting a vegetable garden as well
-Using reusable dryer balls instead of disposable dryer sheets
-Using biodegradeable laundry detergent

Those are just some of the things that come to mind. What kinds of things do you do to be green?
