Ask: what can I do to help keep Earth a viable place for all earthlings to live? Here are some simple and some more complex things we can do to help our environment and keep this planet liveable for all creatures. Choose a few and move forward!
Do not constantly run the water when you brush your teeth or wash up.
Bathe & Shower less. Your skin & hair will love you for it. (Do touch-up wash, please!) Fix leaky faucets & toilets. (In Feng Shui plumbing problems means money down the drain & poor health).
If you have a dishwasher use the quick wash setting for lightly soiled dishes not the regular setting.
Use cold water to wash clothes, use the quick wash setting. Use phosphate free products.
Help reduce the plastic water bottle refuse:
1.Buy a faucet water purifier/filter, or a counter top filter unit.
2.Have a washable water bottle and use the filtered water from the tap or counter filter unit.
Reduce/ stop meat consumption (gallons of water to produce a lb of meat compared to vegetables).
Purchase organic products as much as possible, less harmful fertilizers, pesticides, and hormones.
Take public transportation, bike or walk. Reduce car emissions.

Think about future generations in all aspects of your actions.
Volunteer when possible (we need all the help we can get).
Embrace the plight of our fellow earth citizens and help them cope.
Eat less, eat better, waste less food. Grow a vegetable garden( even in pots).
Make the effort to recycle. Use re-useable bags for shopping and for carrying items. Return plastic bags to markets to recycle. If you cannot, tie them into knots so they don't fly around dumps and into trees & wildlife areas.( learned this in Maui). Cut up your webbed beer & soda holders (protects wildlife).
If you see trash in front of you pick it up when safe to do so.
Keep natural spaces trash free, go the extra mile clean up what you see.
Stay healthy in mind, body and spirit. Support natural medicines over prescription pharmaceuticals.
Enjoy sunny days and embrace rainy ones.
Do one good deed a day.
Don't be arrogant about being an American when it comes to overabundance and resources. Look around at the rest of the world and embrace your good luck.
Celebrate Earth Day, every year it becomes more relevant.
The Planet Earth is the ultimate natural example of Fung Shui principles.
