    Here is an easy way- Filter your water for drinking and cooking.
    I am going to also turn off DVD/DVR/TV/Cable Box/Wii/Computer when not in use!

    I LOVE your “Due in ____ Month” shirt designs.
    I’d love to see you create a crab under the ocean theme!

    Recycle…everything!! if it can’t be recycled it can probably be composted.

    I really love the Tennis and Soccer keychains, also the Tennis bag…Many thanks!

    Hmmm my green life…? My 11 year old is in a water saving program at school. We are measuring our water consumption at home and she has all these projects and questions to answer, has really opened her eyes to water waste!!

    Teething bites! ha!

    You have great stuff!

    Hmmm? Little girl’s room art? Wall decals?

    We put in a water filtration system years ago and tied it into the icemaker on the frig, saving having to purchase filter parts for both systems and having to purchase bottled water. Although filtration systems can waste water, ours drains out to water trees in the yard (and since our state is in a multi-year drought, it may have been the necessary extra to keep our trees alive).

    For reading, I now use a Kindle — yes, it’s plastic, has a battery and will eventually need to be recycled, but saves a tremendous amount of fuel and paper, since my books don’t have to be delivered to the door or to a bookstore that I would have to drive to (nothing is close enough here to get to using any other method of transportation). And it uses less energy than reading on a computer or laptop.

    We already recycle newspaper, glass and plastic. We use rechargeable batteries. We save and use paper for jotting notes or school work. We use longer – lasting lightbulbs. We buy food in bulk.

    My favorite design at your Zazzle site is “Yarr Be Sailing the High Seas Card”.

    I’d like to see more Grandparent designs.

    I have your button on my blog. TY

    My least favorite is we have water saving toliets. We save our rinse water from dishes to water our outdoor plants.

    I heard that drying one load of laundry right after the other saves on energy.

    I’d like to see more Kid Illustrations or Family.

    I blogged both your contests.

    My money saving green tip: We use a Brita water filter jug instead of buying bottled water, we also only use BPA free water bottles to store our water in, just wash and re-use instead of causing more trash. I save everything, I’m almost a pack rat…

    We try to be as “green” as we possibly can.

    We use a Britta, we compost, we turn off lights, never turn on the heat, walk when we can, turn off water when brushing teeth and recycle everything possible!

    Thanks

    My favourite design is the “Green Alien” “Think Green”!

    Maybe a design of a recycled product “before and after” kwim?

    Thanks

    In an attempt to be more “green” I have started bring my own reusable shopping bags when I go shopping. I also ride my bike to work instead of drive. I would love animal print bags. Thanks for the giveaway!

    1. We have eliminated drinking bottled water in our house. We now only drink filtered tap water.
    2. My favorite design is “save the babies”! =)
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Composting!!

    Reusable bags are a great and simple step towards living more “green”. I use them all the time, so this would be awesome! The little veggies are just so cute, I love them!

    I also try to reuse other bags when I can – like rinsing out ziploc bags and using them again instead of tossing them and making more waste.

    I love the adorable penguin design! I’d like to see more cute animal illustrations. I also love the Halloween ties – I like pretty much anything Halloween themed!

    Thanks so much for offering this awesome contest!

    we are mega green here, for the environment and money savers. we never buy bottled water, we recycle or compost everything and use green bullbs everywhere. we use natural products for cleaning and stock up on them when they’re on sale. And, of course, use bags, you get 5cents bonus at some stores for each bag you use!

    I loved so many things on your site, New Family mousemat was a fave, as were the pregnancy tees, due in….jan/ feb etc.

    I would have liked to seen Christian cards for sale (Christmas ones) – I saw the other selections, give thanks etc.

    thanks very much for the giveaway,

    I’m kind of obsessed about going green. I blog about it here! thedirtywork.blogspot.com

    we have all of our electronics on power strips. that way you can turn them completely off rather than leaving them on stand-by all the time.

  • Maggie

    I turn off as many lights as possible whenever not in that room. It’s a small thing, but I like to feel it helps. 🙂
    I like the teething Bites alligator shirt. You have so many cool designs, all I can think of is those like the one I like (puns, etc.) for kids. 🙂

    I have always been real big on if your not in the room turn off the lights. I like “save the babies”.

    We changed all our light bulbs to energy efficient,
    we recycle everything,use cloth bags for grocery shopping,walk a lot and I’m using laundry balls that are good for 45 washes.

    I just love all the cute related animals and the baby elephant. How about some cute angels?

  • TheAngelForever

    We use reusable water bottles and are constantly adding to our bags for shopping and carting things. We also use low energy bulbs.

    So many fabulous designs. I love the Think Green Alien! I would love to see some more fun geek options and for teachers as well.

    Thanks for the great opportunity!

    My hubby and I use a shower timer and we use reusable bottles instead of plastic ones. We also wash in cold water. This bag is so cute. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Carrie

    Green tip: use fabric to wrap your gifts. I actually sew bags that can be reused. It’s fun to watch them get used again each year.
    I like your think green trees design. And, you can’t go wrong with mushrooms and owls right now for new illustrations!

  • rebecca

    Our mantra is reduce reuse recyle, repurpose. We try not to buy too many new things and always donate things we no longer need. My weakness is long showers, but I am truing to cut back on them.

    I love all your bags, mugs, tees, bags etc but my fave is the – Don’t You Know God Loves You T-shirt!
    I think you have a great selection, but rainbows would be nice with a dove! Peace on Earth!

    To be green I do not use plastic shopping bags, I bring my own to the store.

    I love the save the babes pro life saver t shirt!

    We use reusable shopping bags and recycle.

    We do as much as we can, but my very favorite way to have a green househould is to join a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture).

    We are recycling more than ever (our county recently expanded the recycling program) and have cut our weekly garbage waste by 50%! My kids are good at calling us out (usually DH’s fault :P) if we forget 🙂

    My kids like the Think Green Alien, I like the Think Green Trees. What about some sort of diversity picture and slogan (like a rainbow, etc) for a future graphic?

  • xenia

    We try to buy bulk food items and then separate them into small packages to cut down on the waste as well as using refillable water bottles to not have so many disposables.

    I’m due to have a baby next week (yikes!) and I would have loved to wear the Due in December shirt so that maybe a few less people could have asked me that same question over and over.

    Your animals are adorable and I didn’t see them available on onesies anywhere, I think that would be pretty cute!

    Thanks!

    We use cloth diapers and have a hE washer/dryer set.

    I like the pirate kids cards. My kids just had a pirate birthday party!
