    I tried planting some “fancier” flowers in the past, but we didn’t really have the space to get larger containers. It was also cooler and I had to keep them inside. The only room I had was in my window (with the worst lighting) and they ended up growing too tall too fast and folded over. Now there’s only a fern in my window as it doesn't need...

    I had originally decided to do an evaluation of the energy audit in my apartment, but then realized I do not have the information I needed to complete this. So, I decided to create a rainwater collection station for outdoor watering needs at my mothers place. I searched everywhere to find 50 gallon barrel to set up in her backyard and finally...

    This week, I had the amazing opportunity to volunteer with Forest Park Conservancy! I joined a restoration effort to maintain the forest by pulling invasive ivy species. It was a great experience getting involved with such a great cohort and tackling the ivy infestation. Many people who were out walking and running on the trail thanked us for...

    I watched the documentary titled "Food, Inc." I have watched it before in my high school health class but I wanted to rewatch it. The most impactful part for me when I was in high school was the portholes. This aspect still was very hard for me to see. A porthole is a hole they make on the side of a cow so that they can see the inside...

    This week, I was resourceful and used recycled objects to house my plants. I'm making some propagations off my Pothos plant for a friend, which I haven't done before. The other day, I got these little pudding cups I hadn't tried before from Green Zebra. They were plant based, and came in cute tiny glass jars. Normally I would recycle or throw...

    Sorry this is a bit late. This week's challenges were a bit hard! Though, I feel like promoting a sharing economy is something that I have been raised to do, and was inspired to write about. These past couple of weeks have been really hard on me and after our sustainability class today, I could tell that my professor and a lot of my classmates...

    For this weeks eco-challenge I learned about the different alternatives to use for our economic measure instead of GDP. Some systems included Genuine Savings Indictor (GSI), Better Life Index (BLI), Thriving Places Index (TPI), etc. However, the economic measure that caught my eye that I decided to explore more heavily on was the Happy Planet...

    Before I wrote about how my roommates are trying to grocery shop together more in order to save money and keep from wasting perishables. But lately, our schedules and appetites have aligned and we've found time to make bigger meals together. Not only is this a great excuse to spend time together, we're saving time, energy, and money by making...

    Last weekend I went to a farmer market nearby and bought some vegetables to plant in my garden. Because of this, I decided to do the challenge on eco friendly gardening. With spring already here and summer just around the corner, I have been outside more trying to figure out what kind of vegetables I want to plant. Every year I always plant...

    For this weeks project, i decided to continue my budgeting project of last week (since I didn't do so well), and only try and buy essentials. For this, I decided to try and not buy too many groceries, and try to make meals with what I have just sitting in my pantry (pasta, ramen, soup...etc). I kind of just buy boxes of pasta here and there and...
