  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use Reusable Bags
    What do you do if you find yourself in the situation of needing a bag for items but don't have a reuseable one with you? Carry things out in your hands? In a cart? Accept a disposable one? If you find yourself in this position often, what system could you put in place to try to establish this a successful habit?

    I keep my reusable bags in my car. When I unpack them in the house,  I immediately put them in my purse so I don't forget them. I also carry a large purse, so I can put purchased items in there as well.

    It reminds me of all the incredible things I am grateful for and how blessed I truly am. Sometimes first world problems get in the way and taking a minute to reflect takes you back to a place of calm.

    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?

    I am doing my best to get my green thumb badge. I love spider plants. They are good for air quality inside. Plus, they are so easy to grow more. I have been using the cuttings as gifts.

    The efficiency of the programmable thermostat will save energy. It will not run uselessly.

    I am making sure to turn off lights whenever I leave a room. I choose appliances that turn themselves off after a certain amount of time...and also replacing bulbs with LED ones.

    That is crazy how much CO2 is saved by powering down your PC. I love the EcoChallenge because I develop little daily habits that I will continue with even after it is done.

    I painted a cherry blossom tree on an old mirror to up-cycle it this weekend.
