Try watering your plants and yard with rain water! I know it's not new but it's one of those things that is so natural and easy that we (including me) forget to do! I have been searching the web and there are so many types of rainbarrels that are attractive and easy to hook up that; well I just have to get mine ASP. I can't believe how much water I could have saved using one! I also try to plant flowers and scrubs that are native to my home area which are not high maintenance. Going green is not as hard as we think! Just small things will help, so just try something that works for you.
