    Setting up a Care phone tree for a sick and alone resident of our community have 5 people listed need 2 more.  Keep recycling from trash in the club house, maybe by example things will change!  Call Sen. Sweeney to post S678 to prevent storage of fracking waste in NJ! Ugh!!!

    Called Sen. Sweeney to get him to vote on S678 to protect our water and post it against storing fracking waste.  Call 1-877-591-6399!

    Dug into the trash of our club house and recycled 8 plastic bottles, 2 glass bottles, and a package of paper. Why did I dig into trash?  We have a recycling bin!

    Trying to get to sleep before midnight and get at least 6-7 hours of sleep!

    Trying not to feel guilty for not being able to do everything all at once!  Stress is unhealthy!

    I went to a local meeting about fracking waste that is being considered to be dumped locally in our area.  There are many actions that I am involved in including a meeting with a local politician and letters to the Governor and meetings with our legislators.
    Water Say No to Plastic Straws
    What single-use items (e.g. straws, coffee cups, vegetable bags, plastic bags) do you regularly use? What could be substituted instead?

    Single use plastic bags seem to multiply in my environment day by day.  I have cloth bags in my car so I don't have to use the single use plastic bags and I don't always remember to bring them with me to the stores I frequent. I often remember to refuse a plastic bag when I'm  not distracted.

    Health Healthy Sleep
    Consider how many hours of sleep you get now. How would you like to shift your sleep patterns? What are you finding works for you to be successful in this action?

    I am challenged with getting enough sleep. Winding down earlier in the night so that I am not tempted by my electronic devices would be one way to get more sleep. Eliminating snack foods close to bedtime would also be helpful.  This is clearly a work in progress for me.
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    What do you think contributes to people in North America eating more meat than in other places, and what does this say about North American values and ways of living? How do we start shifting a meat-focused food culture?

    I think it is matter of habit and education.  As more people learn about the negative health impacts of eating animal fat,  and the health benefits of eating a plant based diet, things will begin to change.  Education and experience eating healthy food choices will help people begin to shift their diets.
    Food Buy From a Farmers Market
    What is one food choice that you make, or could make, that would do more good and less harm?

    Choosing to buy local in season produce helps limit the carbon footprint of the food that I eat.
