These are all great starter tips. It's great to see how the blogs I read on a regular basis overlap and connect.

For those wanting to take the next step beyond personal conservation (reduce, reuse, recycle), advocacy is the way to go. Join 1Sky or 350.org or another environmental advocacy group and start talking to your political representatives.

Listen to

for some simple and apparently successful advice about going green.

I like your crunched list and I agree that they are all musts, and I do try to take them up in my everyday life. I do think it's crucial to buy local but if I had to stop buying imported foods, yes, that means no California strawberries in February (I can live with that) but it also means, for me here in northwestern Ontario, no: olives, figs, almonds, walnuts, raisins, apricots, pomegranites, oranges, peaches, nectarines, rice (except wild rice)... the list is long. Not sure if I can give up the staples of our family's diet.

plant a garden, even if just a couple herbs in the window box.
