Reduce, Reuse &Recycle, carry own utensils/water bottle always; re-use "single use plastics" ; make sure to recycle all material possible. 2021 invest in home solar & 2022 opt for EV as replacement vehicle. Home composting of plant based scraps, and victory garden. Switch from cow milk to local (raw) goat milk. Reduce hot water usage. continue to harvest rain water. Plan on start using cloth napkins! Look into gray water system from laundry.
I avoid single-use products and try to support companies that are committed to sustainability. Also tending to my garden at home and trying to walk rather than drive when possible!
I am making a pledge to reduce overall greenhouse gas emissions through a series of short and long term strategies - my first undertaking, to utilize public transportation for my scheduled in-office commute days.
I have been composting since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and have saved hundreds of pounds of food waste from going into the trash!
We toss all fruit/veggie scraps into a tumbler composter and anything that we cannot compost ourselves, we toss into the green waste bin for the City's collection. We recycle as many products as we can and we donate used goods to minimize our waste in landfills. We also sometimes pick up trash on our doggy walks to prevent them from ending up in storm drains. We will start adding more trees to our yard this Spring to help fight climate change!
I live a 100% vegan lifestyle. Animal agriculture is the #1 cause of greenhouse gases and the fishing industry is the #1 cause of plastic in the ocean.
We use cloth napkins and cloth diapers!
participate in mandated SB 1383 curbside residential collection service.
I pledge to be mindful of my carbon footprint. Support local businesses that promote sustainable local products.
We recycle, create our own compost, plant low water plants and trees native to So Cal in our yard, we use environmentally safe soaps etc., telecommute when possible, and carpool when possible. We pick up any trash we see and we encourage our neighbors to do all the same things.
At home I have reduced the amount of water I use everyday and have started recycling. I have also reduced the amount of energy I use everyday.
I am delighted to hear of the County's efforts to become more sustainable! We have had Solar Panels on our home for the past 18 years, have a compost bin that we use every day, and currently telework 100% of the time as part of HHSA. We also conserve water and have drip lines for our irrigation. We rarely run our A/C or heat and do our best to reduce plastic consumption with reusable grocery bags and refillable water sippers. My next vehicle will be electric, but my current vehicle is a four cylinder and gets great gas mileage. In short, we do everything possible to lessen our carbon footprint and show our love for the Earth!
Replaced vehicles with PHEV versions. Planning to add more photovoltaic panels and home energy storage solutions to our house to make grid importation as low we possible can.
I pledge to start composting. In addition, I will continue to buy products with sustainable packing, especially beauty and house cleaning products.
I've worked with DPR at Guajome Regional Park, in conjunction with Pack 752 in Oceanside, to host conservation events for the pack where we have scouts and their families plant trees and remove invasive species at the park. It's been a year or so since we last had a conservation event so I pledge to keep the conservations events coming.Outdoor Code- Be clean in my outdoor manners.- Be careful with fire.- Be considerate in the outdoors.- Be conservation-minded.Go earth!-Gary Smith
Use a hybrid vehicle, reuse shower water to water plants, buy green household cleaning products.
I save water, reduce trash waste and recycle.
I avoid plastic, single-use items as much as possible and pack my own reusable water bottle, beverage cup, silverware, meal containers and cloth napkins. I bring them when going out and while travelling, it's easy to do. I also re-purpose grocery and food bags and keep them handy at home and at the market. My family also helps to care for the Earth in this way.
