Easy. I don't have kids. Reduces consumption of damn near everything.

Thank you! Er.. you don't know me, or vise versa, but I randomly went to view other answers and saw your post. And I can not agree more.

Me either, I'm too much of a kid (at 43) to have my own. I recycle every day and I try to use recycled things as much as I can.

Hehe. Great minds think alike. I posted virtually the same answer.

Of course it's difficult to do more of this.

I don't have kids at all and don't plan on having any but of the fur kind.

Two horses which I use their manure for my garden, the hair that I get off my brush when I brush them down is used for the wild birds' nests that they make. I actaully put the hair in a bag and bring it up to the deck and put it on the feeding stations and the birds carry it off to build their nests for their chicks.

My cats hunt and kill the weaker birds so the strong surives and is able to pass their genes along.

Ha! There are still barn swallow nests in my barn that are made from my late, lamented horse's tail hair. I can't bear to knock the nests down because, well, they have a part of him in them now. He's been gone for three years. Sometimes it feels like yesterday.

When I had him, I'd leave big pads of his hair around the barn for the birds. He could shed like nobody's business. :D The boy was made of hair, except for his mane and tail which were typical Appy, which is to say, he had none. :D

Baby, I don't have kids and I haven't owned a car in 15 years. Shit, I could burn a tire on a playground once a week and still be ahead of the "enviro-moms" come every Earth Day.

Did you see the front-page story in the Oregonian this morning where they gingerly raised the topic of reducing one's breeding output to reduce one's carbon output? It wasn't an answer that the recyclin', bikin', hyper-green folks in Portland wanted to hear, as it ran crosswise to the fact that the most rabid environmentalists I met up there (with a couple of notable exceptions) all had a shitload of brats.

Not yet, but I'll look for it.

You light up that tire, I'll dump the small bag of cat litter that I have to toss twice a week... and we'll have some delicious organic soy beverage.

No, fuck it. I want something with actual SUGAR.

No kids, and I keep the thermostat low enough in the winter that the cats come to us for heat and the floors are, well, refreshingly cool.

The cats are carnivores, but I won't eat anything with a face, so that takes care of the grain-flesh ratio. (I've done enough packings to know that subcutaneous flesh looks *exactly* like pork, and I can't cannibalize).

I also cut my own hair, and don't do any colouring, saving the earth from all that ammonia and such.

I won't eat the bird's eggs, though.

Hey! I resemble that remark!

I will say that I do consume (conserve) more books though...If I had kids I could not afford them all...!
