My first was turning off lights that I wasn't using. Yeah I know that it's simple and common sense. But I used to leave lights on when the sun would set. Turning them off has done wonders for my electric bill!

A lot of my 'firsts' happened when I was younger and didn't realize they were 'green'. My dad was just cheap . We were taught to always turn off the lights when leaving a room, have the windows open instead of the air conditioning (and we lived in Texas), put on an extra blanket instead of turn on the heat, we didn't use paper towels, etc. I started becoming more interested in the environment when I was a teenager and after I got pregnant with Dd I really started wanting to make a change. I think my first change I did on my own was go to reusable grocery bags.

Gosh, I think aside from the green things most people do like recycling and buying organic, I think my first step into consciously going green was choosing to cloth diaper when I was pregnant with my first.

Switching to reusable bags. 5 years later and I don't miss plastic bags at all! I can fit sooooo much more in my reusable ones.

Though I've recently had more and more cashiers tell me that it might look like I'm stealing if I use my own bag. So then I end up taking my stuff out of their plastic bag and put in in mine myself! UGH!!!
