    The ecochallenge has had me going around the house constantly turning off all lights not in used. 
  • 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 have used my jackets and anything I have on me as a bag. My habit is to put a reusable bag in my purse and in my car.

    Turning off lights around the house. Unplugging things that I do not use.

    Michael Pollan states that "it is better to pay the grocer (our edit: or the farmer!) than the doctor." What are your thoughts on this?

    Yes! Being proactive and eating and cooking with fresh and local ingredients are the way to go, but sometimes they are so expensive and takes additional planning.

    What did you observe while spending time outside -- through sight, sound, smell and touch?

    I am a lot more conscious in turning off the computers around the house when it is not in used.
