All of our Green@Home posts have talked about the little things that, over time, can make a big impact. In our small Manhattan apartment, we're re-using shopping bags and making an attempt to buy locally produced food. One of the latest changes, I've made is to train myself to turn off the water while I'm shaving. This seems silly, but it was a habit that took a few weeks to break...

I used to let the water run while I shaved. Now I only turn it on to rinse the blade. It's a no-brainer (like turning the water off while brushing your teeth), but it was a habit that I needed to change.

Please send us photos and info on how you live green@home. This is not a contest, just a way to build up an AT inspirational database of sorts on how real folks are living greener at home.

Simple, straightforward ideas are welcome, like how you deal with your recycling bin in a small kitchen, and so are ambitious projects - like your amazing green roof. We hope to have a big archive of ideas to inspire us all by the end of the month.

In exchange for sharing your green@home ideas, Ecover is giving the first 100 of you that we post a thank you gift from their line of green products.

The submission form and all the details are here - hope to hear from you today.
