    I can't believe it's the end of Earth Month already!  I do feel like I built some good habits to continue with more vegan meals, more bicycling and always continuing to learn!  Nice work team!!

    Changing lightbulbs is an excellent first step toward energy efficiency! What's next for you?

    Unfortunately, living in a rental I am limited in the updates I can make.  But I'm going to see if this old electrical system can handle a digital thermostat! Fingers crossed!

      Maybe you can ask your landlord about making the updates in exchange for reduced rent? It will increase the value of their property... OR you could change the lightbulbs for while you are there, and just put back their energy-sucking ones when you move out ;)

    If everyone lived like me we'd need 5.1 earths!  What?  Ok more bike riding and purchasing offsets!

      Isn't it crazy to see usage in terms of the planet's resources!?! Even with doing so many things "right", it adds up so quickly!
