    I had no idea natural gas is a contributor to climate change.   I would absolutely consider an induction stove when I need a new stove.

    I’ve always been conscious of my water usage as my parents were very mindful to not waste water. I will bring a water bottle with me on my vacations so I don’t purchase bottled water.

    I learned that being still helps and practicing mindfulness early in the morning, helps set up mind for a calmer day.

    I have challenged myself to stop and ask myself 'do I NEED this item' before clicking add to cart.  If it is not a NEED I must really have a desire for the item to continue the purchase.
