    Normally I use warm water when I rinse the dishes off, but this time I used cold water.  
  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    What do you think contributes to people in North America eating more meat than in other places, and what does this say about North American values and ways of living? How do we start shifting a meat-focused food culture?

    Grace York 4/16/2019 6:54 PM
    maybe by telling your Co-workers of friends about your food choices.

    Waste Use a Reusable Mug
    Maybe you've heard how good it is to switch from a single use coffee cup to a reuseable one but it's just hard to make the switch. Think about what stands in your way of making this a habit. By identifying the challenges, you can begin to work through them to have better success in taking this action. Knowing the difference you are making, how does it make you feel?

    Energy Switch to Cold Water
    What do you plan to do with the money you save from making more energy efficient choices?

    It's really up to my parents. I know that my mom is glad that I realized that what she's been telling me for years actually matters! Because my parents have to pay the bills, so we don't see how much leaving a light on for 3 hours costs.

    I wish more people would join this challenge! It's so fun, and it turns it into a competition, which makes most people try harder. I know I certainly do! :)
