    I see your point.

    I do own plates and cups ..lol I just choose to use a paper one if and when I decide to eat something at home. Which, isnt often because I find it boring to cook for myself.

    Trust me when I say I am affecting the landfill in the smallest way possible

    Now all of you on the other hand with all your excess car pc parts and wires.. tsk tsk How long does it take for my paper plate to burn and disappear?? I can do it myself with a little bonfire before I throw out the trash and it would be like it was never there at all. Id be down to 0 trash bags a week.

    I know then Id be polluting the air right? lol I give up.. Im a bad person who needs to change :P

    I use CF lights in the house and am considering LED solutions.
    The PC stays off when not in use.
    I have added insulation to reduce heat/cooling needs.
    Purchased a more fuel efficient car.

    Truckin - what car did you purchase?

    We're probably going to have to purchase a new car here soon. A hybrid won't work for what we need it for since hybrids aren't of any benefit on the high way.

    We need a truck since we have motorcycles, but I have a hard time driving a truck around when we're not using it as a truck...

    My answer was an 81 Toyota Corolla... for a list of reasons in no real order:
    No additional car payment
    I can work on it myself
    cheap to purchase and insure
    out of the box millage about 30 (doubles the mileage of the suburban around town)
    The cost of car and the first 6 months of insurance will be covered by fuel savings in about 4 months just for normal driving.
    The reduced cost of service by not driving the suburban is an added benefit


    It is in fairly good shape and old enough to qualify for collector's plates in Colorado and seems to have 80K miles on it.

    I'm supprise that no one said "I cycle to charge the battery to power low power device around house" .
    I remember one of the actor in hollywood did that. While exercise on a cycle, he also charge the battery to power some landscape lights around the house.

    All my light in the house had been convert to CFL. Hang dry clothes instead of dryer. I'm also thinking about LEDs for some of the light as well.
