    I have always mended my clothing, my mother mended my clothing.  I recommend mending as soon as you notice something needs mending. Don’t wait until it gets too large

    I learned a lot about electricity and several alternatives. I am going to do some research to see if I can cut back on my electricity usage.

      It's an initial expense, but they've got some pretty cool tools these days for tracking one's energy use at home...it's interesting to see one's numbers change - drastically in some cases - as you see where your energy hogs are.  https://www.energysage.com/energy-products/energy-monitors/

    I was surprised to learn how easy it is for invasive species to get to different areas and how much harm they can actually do. This is a very interesting topic and I am going to research into it more

    Pollinators sustain our ecosystems and produce our natural resources by helping plants reproduce.  We need a variety of pollinators. I plan on using these lists when I pick out my plants this season

    I’ve never used these lists before but I definitely am going to use them now I was very surprised about the dirty list and will be avoiding those products in the future. I was pleasantly surprised by the clean list because a lot of the items included there are foods that I eat. Very informative
