      One of my goals was to not wait for the water to heat up when I'm doing dishes, or taking a shower. I happen to do that a lot. Another one of mine was to use cold water when I'm doing my laundry.

    Michael Pollan states that "it is better to pay the grocer (our edit: or the farmer!) than the doctor." What are your thoughts on this?

    I have been trying to eat less processed foods lately because I wanted a healthier life style. I did not realize it help the planet or make a difference.  I will try to do this more I think It's good for everyone to try a more healthy Lifestyle. Now I'm not saying you have to be obsessed with eating like this all the time but, Instead of a candy bar you could eat some type of veggie once and awhile.
