What are a few things you do that help the environment?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Photos and interviews by Samson So

"I buy local products from markets. I also have my own garden so I can grow my own salads."

Francois Normandin, Oakland

"I do a lot of the regular things, like recycling. I also try to walk to grocery markets instead of driving. Buying organic foods is also important because it's healthier and supports local farms that don't need to drive as far to sell their foods.

"Tomi Maila, San Francisco

"To contribute to the betterment of the environment, I use drought resistant plants for landscaping and also reduce water consumption through low-flush toilets. I also frequently use public transportation. "

Nick Jaffey, Sunnyvale

"I shop the local farmers markets because the transportation of the goods is less and it saves the environment that way."

Greg Crowes, Sunnyvale

"The one thing I do to help the environment is I recycle. That includes cans, bottles, paper. That's pretty much all I do because generally I think environmentalism is sort of overblown. It's a hoax."

James Eisensy, Mountain View
