    I also was looking at the actions for the economy section and remember doing the trash exercise in high school. My AP Environmental Science teacher made us carry around our trash all day to make us realize how much waste we produced. She even had us tracking how many sheets of toilet paper we used 🤭.  I definitely want to try compost more in...

    I forgot to mention a few things that I wanted to post on here. First, I went grocery shopping yesterday and I tried to buy local or organic when I could. I love shopping at Trader Joes for this reason because I think they really pride themselves on trying to support local and sustainable food options.  Another thing is about the...

    Because my job is 20 minutes away by car (with no traffic), it was difficult to cut down on my transportation this past week. I did carpool a couple of times and made sure to run all my errands in one trip instead of multiple. I just got my bike refurbished, so I'm really hoping to do any local commutes by bike this summer. I also made sure to...

    I was not able to complete most of the transportation challenges this week, due to having had knee surgery three weeks ago. That being said, I set the goal to carpool to the school everyday this week, instead of driving solo as I usually do. I did accomplish this goal, two of my football teammates and I rotate driving everyday and we plan on...

    This week's transportation challenge was a bit hard to check off the boxes. I did not go in person to work at all so I actually commuted 0 miles by bike, but I also commuted 0 miles by car. I'm pretty sure I only used my car once this week to drive to a gravel trail for a bike ride. I was able to walk to the store and didn't have any other...

    This past week with the transportation section was a bit hard for me to change habits much.  As. I mentioned in our meeting, living outside of the city leaves very limited options.  It was interesting to discuss the possibilities and other options, yet unfortunately, none of them are really viable for where I reside.

    This week on transportation, I realized conveniences are costly, both economically and environmentally. I learned with my privilege that I have a choice in the way I transport myself in an environmentally friendly way. I have been more attentive in not using my car for unnecessary trips, which has health benefits as well. I began to skateboard...

    Over the last week, I've been really conscientious about my water usage - everything from cooling used boiling water to water my plants, taking shorter showers, and recycling as much water for household chores as possible. I had a bunch of laundry to do, so I did the loads using cold water on the lowest pressure setting possible, and then dried...

    This week was interesting as when it comes to making large impacts on one's water usage it is easier to make the biggest impact by removing meat from your day-to-day life.  As such I focused more of last weeks goals to make that happen as well as this weeks again.

    Over this past week I kept a water journal to keep track of my water usage. Growing up in multiple states, I learned that not all tap water is the same. In some places, like a community I lived in in Arizona, the tap water was not trusted as drinking water. Where I happen to live now though, in Tacoma, I can use tap water for all of my needs...
