Kristi's actions


Say No to Plastic

Plastic bags and small plastic pieces like straws are most likely to get swept into our waterways. This week, I'll say "no" to plastic bags at the store and plastic straws in all of my drinks.



Reduce Animal Products

I will enjoy 1 meatless meal(s) and/or 0 vegan meal(s) each day this week.


Ecological Principles

Practice Gratitude for Earth

This week, I will spend 5 minute(s) each day outside, practicing gratitude (prayer, meditation, journaling, etc.) for Earth and the nature surrounding me.


A Call to Sustainability

Pay Attention to Current Events

I will watch or read the news each day this week with a specific focus on sustainability issues and happenings.

    I just had a free in-home evaluation by Zach Pegg from the TVA eScore program. The guy looked at all the systems in my house and gave me detailed recommendations for better energy efficiency. It was almost like having a free home inspection! The best part is that if I use one of their recommended service people, TVA will come back for free and inspect the work to make sure it was done right. I can't be at the next meeting, but I'm hoping someone can pass on this information. If anyone wants, they can get a free inspection if they use Zach's promo code: escorezach. Normally it's $75., 855-237-2673. 

    This is the second time I've had this done - the last time was at my old house. It's really a good program.

    I've been looking for a good carbon footprint calculator, and the one listed in the reading this week was really good. I was appalled, however, to find that even with everything I'm currently doing, I *still* use 2.1 earths worth of resources! Wow! I hope to find some changes I can make, that I can live with, and still reduce this.

      It does seem an enormous task, doesn’t it? But 2.1 is a pretty amazing number for living in the USA.  I am inspired by all of your efforts.

      Do you have an individual password? That is what I always end up needing to use. I always get in by going to choices.ecochallenge .org. Sometimes there is a "Dashboard" option and that takes me right to my page. Sometimes I have to log in, and that's when I use my individual password. I hope this helps and I wish I had a more definitive answer. The group passwords did not work for me to get back in
