    What is odd, motorized two wheeled travel is not entering the equation when it comes to sustainability/low carbon foot print. Nobody is talking about scooters & motor bikes, we are talking 50 to 100mpg here. Interestingly, in the area of electric propulsion, the bicycle and motorbike-scooter begin to overlap !

    Great Challenge! Some were easy (already doing) but some I was more motivated to take extra steps to complete.  Go Blazers!!

    Food Buy From a Farmers Market
    What is one food choice that you make, or could make, that would do more good and less harm?

    Megan Sala 4/23/2019 3:14 PM
    Planted my first garden at home this year!  Trying to use home grown veggies to cut down trips to the store, eat healthy (and it's obviously adorable!)
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Choose Two-Sided Printing
    Choosing two-sided printing can be an easy adjustment on your computer settings. How can you help others make this same switch? Can it be encouraged company wide?

    Megan Sala 4/18/2019 10:52 AM
    2 sided printing should be required as default.  But even more important, who prints things these days? :)  
  • Reflection Question
    Energy Choose Clean/Renewable Energy
    How might you be able to get others involved in advocating for the shift to clean energy?

    Megan Sala 4/18/2019 10:50 AM
    Talk about it!  At a friend dinner last week we discussed how easy it is to sign up for clean energy through your power company.  There was a lot of misconceptions about what this meant or how much it costs - by just chatting about it and explaining the simple steps, a few more friends signed up.  

    • Olga Aulet-Leon 4/23/2019 2:59 PM
      That is awesome Megan! You are right, it is easy to switch and the more of us that do the more powerful the impact!

    Water 5-Minute Showers
    Five minute showers are an impressive step toward reducing your water footprint. What is the next step you can take?

    Megan Sala 4/18/2019 10:48 AM
    To reduce water consumption, we frequently take small steps around the house: reusing towels, being smart about not continuously running water (like when brushing teeth or washing dishes, etc) and not watering the lawn, "smart" watering of our veggie garden at cooler times of day during the summer.  Small steps, but help our whole family think about the little things we do that add up!

    After all those years, it still feels good to commute on two wheels !

  • Marla Plass 4/15/2019 8:00 PM
    I now use two mugs at my desk, one for water and one for coffee.

  • Marla Plass 4/15/2019 7:58 PM
    I continue to keep the water off each time I brush my teeth rinsing thoroughly at the end!  I like the difference and will continue indefinitely.

    • Olga Aulet-Leon 4/23/2019 3:01 PM
      Love this! Such a simple thing to do, and the amount of water you will save going forward will make a huge difference to the environment! Thank you!

    Transportation Drive Less
    How has your access to various kinds of transportation throughout your life influenced your current attitudes about transportation and your transportation behavior?

    Juergen Schuetze 4/15/2019 4:12 PM
    I have always been a multi model transportation person, in Portland I have used bus, light rail, a bicycle, a motorcycle and my car. Not planning to change that.
