    Energy Heat and Cool Naturally
    What are other ways you could use the power of the sun to reduce your own environmental footprint?

    I've started looking into solar panels for my house.

    Food Plant an Herb Garden
    Consider the ways you can garden: a plot of land? a patio container? hanging basket? windowsill gardens? What would work best for your living situation and lifestyle?

    We have a small raised garden bed in our backyard, but I struggle with herbs since I have no direct sunlight in my kitchen. I want to setup a spare room with my container herb garden to thrive in.

    Waste Use a Reusable Water Bottle
    While water bottles serve an important role in places for health and safety, we can do more to reduce the unnecessary use of them. Can you identify the barriers in making this a new habit? How can you set yourself up for success in making this a permanent change?

    I keep one bottle in my gym bag, one at my desk, and one in my car, so I always have a reuseable bottle on hand.

    Food Try a New Way to Prep
    Canning and pickling food is a great way to have delicious summer fruits and vegetables all year round. Just make sure to follow the canning and pickling guidelines from the USDA. What are some foods that you would like to preserve and enjoy later in the year?

    I currently make my own chicken stock and can it, however, I'd like to expand into beef and seafood stock as well! I'd also like to try and can some apples and cherries for pie filling.
