    How can you be more involved in nurturing a sustainable and just community where you live? Where could your deep passion meet your community’s needs? I am part of several communities within the community where I live. In the course of helping my neighbor farmers, and buying their produce, I enjoy a connection with their passion and their good...

    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...

    As you know I have been thinking about how to reduce my plastic use. This morning I heard an NPR story about plastic particles found in the air in the Pyrenees Mountains, far from any large cities.

    I am beginning a sustainability journal by writing down the least and most sustainable practices I engaged in at the end of each day. So far, it raises my level of consciousness and gives me a chance to see some positives.

    TVA is accepting public comment on their Integrated Resources Proposal until April 8.   If you go to https://tvairp.com you can learn about the various proposals for how our energy will be sourced up through 2038. There is a bubble on the right that says "get involved" and that is where you can go to leave a comment. The bar graphs...

    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.

    Read articles about former mayor Megan Barry's push for Nashville to be the "greenest city in the southeast," and it appears that David Briley is continuing to push sustainability in his administration.  The new police headquarters is up for LEED silver certification and has the largest rooftop solar installation in the city. ...
