Do you live in Brooklyn? Beacon's Closet( www.beaconscloset.com ) is a great second hand clothing store where you can trade in last seasons fashions(or in my case, last decade's) for cash or store credit. Round up whatever clothes you haven't worn in the last month, bring 'em in, and use the cash to start replacing the lights in your apartment with compact fluorescent bulbs. According to the people at http://www.greenlightsusa.com/ , replacing one 60 watt bulb prevents 504 lbs. of pollution and saves you $54 dollars. They also donate 10% of proceeds to environmental causes, and their bulbs seem to be a bit less expensive than the hardware store offerings!
P.S. Sorry I missed the first meeting to do laundry. I did use an environmentally friendly soap.
