We live in a dorm, so it's hard for us to compost, but the university has a garden with a compost pile off campus. We put all our compost stuff in the freezer until we can make it out to the garden to deposit it.

A really simple thing is to use all of the paper (write everywhere, print two sided) before you recycle it. I started doing this and was amazed at how much my paper use decreased.
sounds like the chico bag I mentioned in an earlier post! I have one that is clipped to my purse. On the plus side it makes a great knitting bag too!
