    We are building a new house and are excited about making it as sustainable as possible – we live in an old victorian now and have done what we could. Now we’ll get to start from scratch and plan the whole thing.

    I plan to start small by doing a better job of insulating the windows and doors – sealing up the cracks where I can. Old craftsman house, so lots to do. I plan to switch out the toilets and shower heads to low flow. The appliances need to be upgraded. The list goes on….

    Would love to win something great for me and good for the environment from Inhabitat & Lutron!

    In 2013 I plan to upgrade my personal computer.

    This 2013 our family of four is deciding to down-size to a 600 sq ft green rental. It’s gonna take some imagination, but thanks to the creative genius at inhabitat… we’re excited to make this happen!

    I had never heard of Lutron before, but looking through this site has me enthralled with all the ideas for saving energy. I read this as I sit in my living room, freezing “to death,” trying not to use too much energy while it’s below zero outside. We could definitely use some window shades to help us keep the heat in. Meanwhile, we’ll keep ourselves wrapped up in comforters and snuggle with the cats.

    We’re finding ways to reuse and upcycle objects into useful items! For our new years party, we’re reusing salvaged ribbons, dried flowers, and tin cans in our decor!

    I think that this is a great site…first time here and appreciate what you are doing with these products. I really liked the solar power devices and would choose one if I won. Good luck everyone.

    Work on reducing my carbon footprint by:
    1. Buy less packaged foods
    2. Carpool
    3. Ride my bike more often
    4. Purchase more organic foods and organic chemicals

    Also, I plan to volunteer more often on projects such as trail work and garbage pick up.

    I will make sure I save more ENERGY by making sure all lights are turned off when I leave the house, hoping nobody breaks in knowing that Im not at HOME.
