Go For Natural Products
Bringing my own shopping bag during groceries is what I do and I am teaching my children to practice it too. Buying fresh fruits and vegetables to my neighborhood to ensure the freshness of the goodies are good too plus I can save more of my money when I do it. I guess, there are many little ways to recycle and to love the natural products and it really depends to us if we are going to seriously do it.
French Press Coffee Maker
I love using my french press coffee maker! It is a simple brewing device that uses no paper filters or electricity. I am also a big fan of a local coffee company in my neighborhood where I purchase in bulk. They have a lot of Fair Trade options, are very involved in the community and give back to many groups and organizations. My morning cup is mostly guilt free!
bottles and bags
I carry my own bags to the store with me. I have been doing this for a while and I take them into every store I go in to. I also use the aluminum water bottles and brew my own iced green or black tea to put in them. I save plastic from being used for water bottles and I don't have to spend money on bottled green tea either!
Even in Central America
Her in Central America, I started toting my own bag long ago and the baggers thought I was nuts! I had to beat them to the punch as they love putting even detergent bottles in plastic bags and then in another plastic bag. But! It DOES change. As we support the process people will catch up.Now those same grocery stores are all selling "save the planet cloth bags!"
Ok, easy one but I love mine and it gives back every week AND I can carry so much in them - reusable shopping bags. The KEY is to keep them in your car.
Finally, not a product but a really worthwhile effort....having our own little garden in the backyard.

I found a very inventive toothbrush at Target. It's called a Source Toothbrush and it's made by Radius in the USA. The handle is made from recycled wood bioplastic (mine is made out of recycled dollar bills) and has replaceable heads that allow you to only replace the part of a toothbrush that wears out. The replaceable heads last as long as ordinary toothbrushes but conserve 80% of material they waste, eliminating the need to recycle handles cross-country. The handles are neat in that you can adjust it for either a left or right handed person! The packaging, also, is made of 50% recycled soda bottles.
