    I bought reusable produce bags for fruits and vegetables. Hoping to bring them on my next grocery shopping trip. I've continued to adjust my thermostat on the way out each morning.

    I carpooled home with a work friend yesterday evening. It not only spared the environment 1 pound of CO2, but it was fun having a buddy to ride with :)

    Making sure to adjust my thermostat before leaving for work. I'm trying to be more aware of the resources I use. I'm looking for a new shower head that will use less water.

    I'm trying to be more aware of what they call "fast fashion" on here. My goal is to go thrift shopping instead of going to the mall and buying new clothes. Reduce and reuse! Any second hand clothing stores in STL you'd recommend?

    I'm continuing to recycle as much as I can. I'm a little confused still on what can and cannot be recycled. My goal for the next few days is to become more familiar with recycling rules. I did learn that a product cannot be contaminated by food particles, when it goes in the recycling bin. One cool thing I found out was pizza boxes can be recycled only if there are minimal grease stains. The stain must take up less area than the palm of your hand. Good to know!
