I wanted to do something "green" for the entire month of April to celebrate (like giving up paper towels), but I clean houses for a living so that was not going to happen.

Turn off the lights when you leave a room and keep small appliances unplugged when they are not in use. I'm definitely guilty of using too many plastic bottles, but until our drinking water on this little island improves, I will continue to purchase bottled water. Hey, at least I recycle them.
Here are some other things you can do to minimize your ecological footprint:
