Today I follow Janel's lead kicking off the Green@Home giveaway. Like Janel, most of my greening steps have also been slow and steady...many things we've already shared on Apartment Therapy. Although I've recently increased my home size, I continue to make smart solutions for the future of my 1920s home. A few of our choices in '08:

Green Move #1: Installed sustainable cork flooring - and we're looking to do even more.

Green Move #4: We buy used as often as possible - including this amazing $99 score on our South Bend stove.

Please share your photos and details with us about how you live green@home. We're hoping to collect dozens of simple, great ideas this month to share with the AT community.

Simple, straightforward ideas are all welcome, alongside the big, bold decisions you might also have made at home.

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.

You can find the submission form and all the details are here.
