A product may be produced from recycled materials, for instance, or created using electricity produced from solar power rather than fossil fuels.

One very practical way to help the environment right now is to carry your own tote bag to the supermarket. This will help eliminate the estimated 100 billion plastic bags produced in the US each year - which literally take centuries to fully decompose in local landfills.

Along with the fact that plastic bags are one of many oil based products consuming billions of gallons of petroleum each year, it's easy to see why switching to eco-friendly totes is a good idea.

Earth friendly products may also be substituted for less earth friendly products. Non-chemical insecticides, for example, can replace more toxic, environmentally damaging chemicals which taint food products and damage the soil.

Eco-friendly products may also be products which help reduce energy and natural resource consumption. An intelligent heating system, for instance, will turn the heat off in a house when residents are at work, and heat the house back up before they get home, saving huge amounts of energy by only using it when necessary.

Another trend among a growing green movement is the giving of eco-friendly gifts for birthdays or around the holidays that promote green living to the as-yet initiated.
