We have a 8 ft. X 40 ft. vegetable garden in our back yard. Local, organic, more nutritious, tastes better, and zero transportation / processing. We usually give a bunch away to friends and family. I try to use as many heirloom seeds as possible and hope to start seed saving soon, my little contribution to biodiversity.

I compost mainly to minimise the waste I send to a landfill. Almost all of my food waste ends up in the compost. It's not that much work, but I enjoy what little work out does take to watch food, cardboard, and grass clippings (from my motorless push mower) into a hot streaming pile of dirt. It's one of the few things in my life that gives me a nice sense of accomplishment.

Reusable bags, coffee mugs, water bottles. Only buy green cleaning products including soaps and detergents so I’m not dumping chemicals into the water supply. Conscious consumerism....only support companies who have ethical and sustainable supply chains. Use public transit / bike to destinations. Reuse, reduce and recycle anything and everything I can. But I want to do more. I’m looking for inspiration.

revive the planet? on one hand I do believe in global warming, nature is in trouble etc. but on the other hand I also do think that we as humans are very arrogant in thinking that we can revive the planet. humans as species have been on this planet for let's say 500k years and WE think that we need to save the planet which has seen much more worse happen to it since the inception. We my friend aren't going to be around but the planet existed before us and will do so after ALL of us are gone. Earth will revive itself; it will reuse, recycle and reform on its own which we will never love to witness!
