    How much energy we use in the winter.  Guess it's time to bundle up more.

    This has been a great challenge to make me aware of how/where I can impact my carbon footprint!  Finish Strong!!
  • Reflection Question
    Energy Adjust the Thermostat
    Your utility company is able to tell you your average energy usage. Ask them how your energy usage compares to others in your zipcode, and in your state. What other steps can you take each day to reduce your electricity usage?

  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Choose a Carbon Offset
    A round-trip flight from New York City to Los Angeles emits just over 1.5 tons of CO2—per person. That’s a lot of carbon! What can you do to reduce the number of flights you take per year?

    When going through stressful situations I tend to walk more.  Walking allows me to think through things and spend time thinking how to make them better.

    When walking I notice the landscaping of the houses in my neighborhood - when driving i do not pay close attention to this.

    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?
