What steps have you taken to lead a more sustainable life?

It’s the second week of Science and Sustainability month, and this time we want to know what you have done to lead a more sustainable life. Be as specific or as general as you want. Do you reuse items that you’d normally throw away, bike instead of drive, compost your trash? Have you made dramatic changes to your lifestyle in order to live more¬†sustainably? What is your rationale behind these changes?

And more importantly, have you tried to make changes that¬†ultimately¬†failed, either because it was too expensive, too much extra work, or just stopped making sense? Are there changes you want to make that you can’t? How do you balance the sustainability ethic against the pressures and conveniences of modern living?
