It seems with so much information flying around about going green and dire environmental forecasts, many of us are overwhelmed and don't know where to start. Well, let's get back to some more basics for being a little more eco-friendly.
Remember, small steps are the key to long term success. Maybe you can walk, bike or use public transit a few days a week. Or better yet, see if your boss will let you work from home, or if not, at least carpool with a friend.

Your furniture and décor say a lot about your personality. Visit a local flea market for a great buy on used furniture.
Around your house, turn off lights in areas not being used, install water-saving shower heads. A month-to-month breakdown on your bill will help you track your improvements as you use less and save more.
