I recycle and do everything I can to avoid making more garbage. I got this awesome water bottle at Walmart that has a carbon filter built in, so I don't need to use anymore plastic water bottles at work. The filters are replaceable, too, so I don't need to buy a new bottle, either. Also BPA free, so that's good, I guess. I suppose I could also say I bought a motorcycle to reduce my use of gas, which is true, but I really got it cause I've always wanted one, and now I'm a bada$$! Lol.
I also have florescent light bulbs, turn everything off, bought more energy efficient appliances, and get onto the kids all the time about turning the water off. Of all things, I think that's the one we should really be worried about, since there are a lot of scientists who keep telling us we're going to run out of water. Yikes! I also eat organic when I can afford it and try to get to the farmers market as often as I can and buy local fruits and vegies at the store.

I have a mulch bin and I mulch yard debris along with food waste. I recycle plastic bags, but I also use my own washable bags when I shop. I drive a Suburban--not good on fuel mileage--but I have cut back
