Post any ideas or ways to conserve/recycle/etc. Preferably simpler things (as I live with my family and can't do everything how I want), but anything is cool. Thanks.

Use your own shopping bags instead of the plastic ones you get in the shops =]
I use a hessian bag and a turtle bag =]

Use compact fluorescent bulbs instead of regular incandescent light bulbs. The fluorescents use less electricity and last far longer.

Start composting. Instead of throwing all those inedible bits of veggies out, you can compost them and turn them into soil. There are lots of composting resources on the web.

Drive less; walk and bike more. Take public transportation when possible.

And, of course, eat a vegan diet!

Great subject for a thread!
