    Industry leads culture through marketing. Alternatives to meat are difficult to find and socially less acceptable. The best appeal to shift these patterns is through appeals to self-interest rather than social good or social norming.

    Today is the last day of the Challenge, lets continue to make a difference.  Lets all be mindful!

    I'm now leaving my small kitchen appliances unplugged when not in use. That was easy. The tougher energy hog is the TV set up. Between the TV, router, Apple TV box, etc. it's alot of wires. Has anyone successfully found a smart plug to manage this and does the TV have to "reboot" every time you turn it back on? Thanks team!

    We are down to the wire.  We all can do our part....start today!

    It's so difficult to understand the impact because we send our problems away! Out of sight, out of mind. I feel strongly that I would like to make the most minimal impact I can.

    The weather is perfect for improving my local bus stop. My daughter and I will get out there before the end of the week.
