    I just watched the recording of your last session.  I'm in for a graduation party and meeting you all face to face!

    I kept track of all the items I threw away this week that were headed to the landfill because I was unable to recycle them or compost them.  Most of what I threw away were tissues and paper towels.   That makes me think that I should research better ways to dispose of the tissues or if I should start using handkerchiefs again.  I have started minimizing the use of paper towels by using washable ones but I can certainly do more of that.

    The class has helped me to increase my awareness of my personal actions and how they affect the environment.  This is leading me to take actions that are more earth friendly.

    Wanting to do 2in1, I walked to the local hardware store to buy a new mechanism for a bathroom faucet, and on the way picked up trash.  I found so many plastic bottles, cans, masks, wipes and McD drink cups that I had to make a detour to the local park to empty my bag which I then filled again on the way home.  Lots of people said hi and were obviously intrigued.  Some told me that they picked up trash too!

    We began subscribing to the Washinton Post daily Climate 202 articles via email.  It is free. We receive climate news that is not standard fair. It is global information but covers in depth information about North America and it's exposures.

    We are remodeling our house. We replaced our old toilets with water saving bank technology. We replaced our appliances, washer, dishwasher, refrigerator, with energy efficient replacements. We will monitor water usage for savings. We will not let the water run the entire time that we are brushing our teeth. :-) 

    During the Summer months we will be sure to use timers when watering is necessary. 

    We will continue to keep tap water in the fridge for drinking versus buying bottled water.
