Very nice, thank-you! It is nice to have a collection of tips all in one place. I'll be reading through them and looking for some new ideas and new ways to go even more green. We are trying to do better each day and it seems like everyday, I learn something new on this website. It is very much appreciated!

Yes, much easier especially for new members to browse or look for the green living tips through a single thread on this forum.
I could still remember some of those threads and I could say that I had learned a lot from those conversations.

Great idea, Shortpoet - thanks for thinking of that. These posts are all really helpful, especially for those of us relatively new to the concept of green living, as opposed to merely separating the glass, paper, plastic and cans from the rest of the garbage. Since I joined this forum, I've found that there's a lot more involved in living green than I ever imagined, so it's nice to have some of the basics gathered together for quick reference.

Shortpoet I am such a fan. I like to be dark green and will do everything I can. Small things make a big difference. I can remember how my mother wuld never let us leave a tap running or leaking even a drop per hour. Or to leave lights on everywhere.

Thanks for the post!  I'll definitely be looking into all of these.  The environmental facts were very interesting!  Also the tips were helpful too.  I never realized that LCD screens were more economical than plasma.  Although, now that I think about it, it does make more sense.  Also, this website can be pretty helpful too: http://www.greenlivingtips.com/

Great collection of tips Shortpoet.

This thread is really going to be popular as a source of green tips, me too have mentioned this thread as a source of green living tips in my eco friendly blog. I have also written a new post mentioning top seven reasons which justify the use of jute in our day to day life. In this blog I have emphasised on the environment friendly aspects of jute & jute made goods. I am also planning to write on other topics in future as well e.g. recycled goods, solar energy and other eco friendly practices.
