    Turning off unused lights also keeps the house COOLER in the summer. I laughed too, but it works.

  2. Jennifer says:

    We use less electricity by air drying clothes/diapers and using natural light.

  3. Brett says:

    We use less energy cooking meals, turn the lights off more, and use fans whenever possible.

  4. Bethany says:

    We line dry our clothes out in the sunshine! :)

  5. Leslie T says:

    I don’t wash clothes unless I can line dry!

  6. hollie n. says:

    we stay eco friendly by leaving the windows open instead of turning on the A/C. We also grill dinner outside instead of turning on the oven and heating up the house. And save laundry by letting the toddler run around in just cloth diapers ;D

  7. Danyelle Binko says:

    During the summer we hang our clothes on the line as often as we can.

  8. Shira Windschitl says:

    I’m going to attempt to line dry my diapers. I am still unsure about the whole crunchy cotton thing, though. I’ve also moved the baby’s play room downstairs so we aren’t using as much electric to keep the upstairs cool.

  9. JHollyhock (aka Jennifer H.) says:

    Like most people we try to use our dryer less in the summer and use less lights with all the natural light shining in. Riding bikes or walking instead of driving is also something we enjoy more in the summer.

  10. Amy H says:

    We grow our own vegetables, does that count? And yes, less running the dryer too :)

  11. Jenny says:

    Shopping farmer’s markets!

  12. Lindsay R says:

    We line dry, use cloth instead of paper towels, use reusable water bottles and walk more to local spots.

  16. Amy says:

    Our family dries our cloth diapers on a drying rack (year round!) but we love it during the summer cause they get to sit in the sun! :) We also try to avoid using our AC as much as possible.

    With the recent news on commercial sunscreen, a new way we’re going green this summer is finding and using natural sunscreen sans the chemical. We’re also avoiding plastic on our outings with reusable water bottles. Our greenest of green in our family is by choosing cloth diapers for our baby.

    I am about to switch total silver for my spot! We also eat as much fresh raw food as we can! and a tip for those who fight with flies, next clove essential oils with water! Then spray. It makes your house smell really good, and it’s non-toxic and deters flies.

  46. Angie Madore says:

    We line dry as often as possible. I’m also using this summer as an opportunity to teach my daughter more about recycling by taking her to the recycling center each week.

  47. We keep our current eco-friendly lifestyle all year long but look for ways to cut our electric usage by turning the a/c up a few degrees and hanging all of our laundry out to dry in the hot FL sun!
