  4. We live in a big apartment complex. Composting is out of the question, but I try to find uses for things that would otherwise get thrown away. We shop second-hand stores for decorations/knick knacks and only buy recycled paper products (like TP, paper towels, etc.) I plan on starting a recycling bin, too.

    I'm glad there's a book about Green Design…I just did a search on the topic a few days ago and came up pretty empty. Small or big houses can incorporate green elements in every room, indoors and out. I'd love to win the book so I can show my clients that it's worth it to go Green!

    I'm always looking for new tips for both design and for going greener. Awesome combination. We only have one world, its our jobs to take care of it and to teach those we impact to take care of it.

    Sorry I forgot to answer the Question. I've gone green by using Cedar balls and Cedar blocks instead of air fresheners and moth balls in closets, drawers, and storage chests.

    I recycle all cans and bottles, use eco-friendly/energy saving light bulbs, use recycled bags. I work at home as a web designer and I try to not print anything and always send electronic files; and when I absolutely need to print, I use recycled paper – my stack of recycled paper has lasted me more than 6 years!

    Oh, and to give my apartment a nice eco-friendly look it's decorated with many sansevieria plants!

  9. Leighann says:

    We've changed all of our light bulbs to energy efficient, use power bars and switch off at the source, we use recycled items and re decorate with used items to re finish where possible.

  10. Let's put aside the notion that being green at home is expensive. It just takes a little effort from us. Thanks for the inspiration. http://www.buzzlightyeartoy.org.uk
