Actually, reusing things seems to be the best way for me to become more green. Finding new uses for things that otherwise would have been thrown away is a great way to help the planet. Glass bottles can be reused (just save the cap), plastic containers, and plastic/paper bags. I've even made some decorations out of recycled items.
Hopefully, I will be able to plant in the summer. There are always more ways to save energy and reduce waste!
