what do you guys do to conserve

what do you guys do to conserve resources?? i refuse a plastic bag if what i stop to get can be carried out in my hands. I try to cut down on short trips in the vehicles. there's a can recycling place right by my job and since there is i save cans and drop them there on my way to work. actually the last time i saw a guy picking up can on the side of the road so i stop and gave him too bags full. never seen a person so happy. anything you guys do?? every little bit helps.

1. crack window instead of using ac (home/car)
2. use blankets in the winter instead of heater
3. I reuse my plastic bags as lunch boxes
4. I only look at mags that have more than one girl on the same piece of paper.

i thought i might've read somewhere that motorcycles give out more pollution than cars? either way, i do whatever little things i can. i bury the fish remains after i filet them because it just seems better than throwing them away and plus it makes the garbage cans stink like . other little things, i don't know. i'm on UCS' mailing list

You might have been joking but I really do the same thing because I hate the thought of wasting a gallon of water just because I had to pee
