  8. Purchase a reusable water bottle instead of buying plastic water bottles
  9. When taking the plastic holders off of six packs of bottles and cans make an effort to cut each holder so if for some reason it doesn't make it in a landfill at least it won't get wrapped around the neck or leg of a innocent critter out in the wild.
  10. Learn how to compost.
