Well, I do enjoy watching The Today Show every morning and I have learned many fun and new things. Over the past few weeks, they have focused on going green and wanted to see how fellow quilters are doing "green".
Personally, I'm trying hard to downsize material stuff - fabric, books and using Freecycle locally to share my "stuff" and my Manic Monday Days. I also use Craig's List sometimes to make a few bucks, though folks tend flake on that medium.
I do a lot of online shopping and it seems over the past few years, I receive more catalogs than ever before - up to 7 a week. I don't really read through them and being our recycling folks don't take magazines, I have to trashed them. On the Today Show, they introduce a interesting web site called Catalog Choice, where you can go in and set up an account and stop catalogs from coming and keep the ones you truly want. Not all catalogs are on this site, but you can add ones so it helps them update the site. Very cool.
Another cool website I have found is called Paper Back Swap. I have yet to actually request stuff, but I'm in the process of adding items. The reviews I have heard from friends is very encouraging.
I have started to convert my light bulbs over to compact fluorescent light bulbs, which I actually prefer in my sewing area. And of course that is where I've started that change :D
It's not a lot of "going green", but every bit helps and I notice the more aware I am of my "extra stuff" the more conscientiousness I become.
So, what are you doing "green"?
