March 3rd: Before you leave home for your spring break, adjust the air conditioner and water heater thermostats to conserve energy.

March 9th: Book flights with airlines that offer electronic tickets to reduce your paper waste.

March 10th: If you find a "green" product or company that you like, tell your friends. Consumers can use their collective purchasing power to effect change.

March 11th: Explore your Spring Break location on a bike instead of by car. You'll spend and pollute far less.

March 12th: Stay fresh this Spring Break in eco-friendly fashion. Limit your shower to 5 minutes and save up to 1,000 gallons of water a month.

March 13th: Snap your Spring Break photos with reusable batteries and be sure to return old batteries to your local electronic store to be recycled.

March 14th: Before leaving for your Spring Break trip, unplug all of your appliances and turn off your thermostat. Don't pay for electricity you are not around to use.

March 15th: Respect the natural land around you. Pick up all the bottles, cans, and wrappers you leave on the beach this Spring Break.

March 16th: Get involved. Consider spending your Spring Break by helping out communities devastated by environmental disasters.

March 17th: Reuse plastic or paper shopping bags to pack items for your Spring Break trip and recycle them afterwards.

March 18th: Rather than buying travel-sized toiletries for your trip, fill reusable containers with shampoo, soap, and other necessities.

March 19th: Take the train for journeys less than 300 miles. Trains and buses are usually the least polluting means of transportation for long distances.

March 20th: Don't smoke this Spring Break. Thousands of acres of forest and wildlife habitat can be devastated by a single cigarette.

March 21st: Think about how your Spring Break trip affects the environment. Decide to offset your travel and consumption with positive actions that contribute to the health of our planet.

March 22nd: On your Spring Break Bring, bring along a refillable water bottle instead of buying bottled water and creating excess trash.

March 23rd: Camping this break? Ask about their recycling facilities and bring along your own accommodations if necessary.

March 24th: You've got extra time when you're on break. So do something that's beneficial to you and everyone around you. Pitch in at a local environmental organization.

March 25th: Gain perspective. If you're traveling this break, take in the local culture and consider how your lifestyle back home may impact others around the world.

March 26th: The golden rule of traveling: Respect the local environment as you would your home.

March 27th: Consider washing a full load of laundry with biodegradable laundry detergents that do not contain chlorine, phosphates, or other chemicals that harm the water supply.

March 28th: Use your Spring Break to visit endangered habitats. Call a local environmental organization to join their next trip.

March 29th: During your vacation, use public transportation whenever possible. You'll reduce pollution and take in the local culture.

March 30th: Spread the word! Share the "buy smart" message with your family and friends during your vacation. Waste less by reducing, reusing, and recycling.

March 31st: Be a responsible hiker. Leave nothing behind, and pick up what others throw away before it is washed into the water you drink.
