I hope this is a good venue to discuss barriers and roadblocks to implementing the challenges. How are others doing with the shorter shower thing? Changing my very ingrained personal hygiene habits is proving more difficult than changing lightbulbs... any tips?

Does anyone know a good landscaper who is "green"? I am thinking of getting rid of that patch of lawn in front of my home and instead planting some native plants that require no watering. Any contacts or ideas? Thanks. Caroline

I just put this in myreply to ponteri10 about bags. I have successfully started bio-bags recently. They are good trash bags and compost bags, and are 100% compostable and biodegradable. http://www.biobagusa.com/
I bought them at Whole Foods but find them very expensive there (like everything else at WF!!). I found out you can buy them by the case online directly, which I will try. If anyone wants me to order some for them let me know. Caroline
