Are you naturally inclined to be green? Find your Sun sign's element (Fire, Earth, Air, or Water) below for tips on how you and your family can best live an environmentally conscious life!

Fire signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
You're competitive and you love a good challenge, so if you get together with family members or work colleagues about who can recycle the most, you'll be more likely to get involved. Fire signs thrive on new initiatives, so your challenge will be to maintain interest after your initial enthusiasm dies down. Keep things simple to make it easy. Set up recycling boxes around the house and create challenges with your kids about who can collect the most waste to recycle. Get creative and offer rewards for family members who actively participate.

Earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

Your practical nature loves a financial benefit, and you may even prefer re-using before you start recycling. Re-using means taking the effort to clean or repurpose items you already have, which in turn often means you can avoid (or at least delay) buying new things. Consider repurposing that glass jar your pasta sauce came in to store dried fruit, nails, or paper clips. If you can see a financial benefit, you'll be inspired to do more. Being a sign naturally connected with the Earth, you intrinsically understand the importance of reducing demand for resources.

Air signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
You like the idea of recycling and green living, but you may lack the drive to take action. Make green living fun by starting with a group of friends, or pooling resources with extended family. This could mean a social morning spent working in a community garden, setting up a composting system, or perhaps simply becoming more efficient about sorting paper, glass, and plastic from one another. Information is your biggest motivator, so if you do your research first, the facts will convince you that even the smallest changes can make a difference.

Water signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Your sensitive nature means practical things like recycling sometimes fall down your priority list. While inherently you may not always be bothered, you know how good you feel when you do anything that makes a difference in the world. If you can connect recycling to improving the planet for future generations, you'll be more inclined to make changes that will benefit your kids (and their kids). Water is a huge environmental issue, so consider how you could be more mindful of water use in your home; you could also cut down on using plastic water bottles. Consider switching to glass or metal for a truly green water experience.
