Ward's Actions


Do Nature Activities

I will engage in nature-based activities alone, or with my friends or family, for 15 minute(s) each day. (This can be anything from going on a walk or hike, to noticing the leaves changing color, to reading a book with nature themes.)


Create Your Own Action

Away with all plastics

To purchase zero plastics for the entire October challenge.No straws,No plastic bags, No plastic mechanical pencils,No plastic period. I picked this because plastics are not natural to our biosphere.

    So I had a cosmopolitan today and it came with a plastic cocktail straw. should have seen that one coming.  It seams we almost have a symbiotic relationship with the the stuff. Small Dakine, but for the most part I've been successful today. used glass jars to get laundry soap and curried pistachios.

    What did you observe while spending time outside -- through sight, sound, smell and touch?

    After my eyes adjusted to the natural light, objects became more clear and vibrant. I could hear more distant sound. I could smell the dank and earthiness of the bio-swell. I felt the mildly smooth surface of a very large basalt rock placed unnaturally in the riparian area just off the pavement of the parking lot.......... Fascinating.

    Shoping with zero plastics in mind is very revealing of the limited options available. What was uplifting was joining a food coop (People's ) and I can get bulk tofu,bring your own container,local artisan bread in a paper bag.Peace out and good luck with your chalengrs.
