1. goin' veggie! Primarily organic... and we'll be hitting the Farmer's Market for local items. Oh, and we've cut down on how often we go to a grocery store. And we bring our own organic cotton grocery bags!

2. switching to natural cleaners - Jonelle's given me even more great tips!

3. the standards: CFLs (even on outdoor lights), dropped thermostat to 67, running dishwasher on off-peak hours, unplugging chargers and misc items, sprinkler system OFF during rainy season, ... Oh, and my business is using recycled or sustainable paper... when I'm not paperless! :-)
