Happy Earth Day

Today is Earth Day. There is a quote that says "every day is Earth day" and I definitely like that idea better than having a single designated day. 

There are many things that can be done to celebrate and protect our Earth. The Earth Day site has lots of ways you can pledge to help and it even has a footprint calculator. 

 Here are some of the ways I try to reduce my consumption: 
1. Vegetarian diet
2. Buy local produce (we support local farmers by getting a CSA box each week)
3. Growing our own vegetables (check out our garden here)
4. One car family (we only use 1 car 99% of the time and carpool as much as possible)
5. Recycle and use reusable water bottles

How do you help conserve resources and celebrate Earth Day?
