#7 Farmers Markets. There is a farmers market in every area of the city and most suburbs, some are even year round. There's several that are at least March-November. It makes buying fresh, local, organic produce much easier and affordable. You can even get flowers, starter plants for your garden, and other homemade arts and crafts at most of these. There's usually live music and tons of food to choose from as well. And of course water fountains for kids to run through.
#9 Recycling. Whatever your stand on environmental issues, hopefully we can all agree that we humans, especially Americans, are incredibly wasteful and produce an appalling amount of trash. Recycling may not be the perfect answer, but it's at least an attempt to reuse some resources. There is recycling pick up in every neighborhood and recycling and even compost bins a lot of places you go.
