    There are so many different non profits to learn about and learn from. The ones that are important to me contribute to the conservation of animals both here in the Northwest and around the world. Conservation Northwest is one of the largest contributors to the data collection and volunteer work here in WA, and I learned a lot about their program and hope to do my own volunteering in the future!

    Basic Needs & Security Know Your Produce
    What surprised you about the two produce lists? How will you use these lists for your grocery shopping? Have you used these lists before?

    I’ve never seen these lists, and thought it was interesting that there was such a diverse range of food types on each. I know I make the right choices for my health in taking advantage of all the local farms and produce stands in my area, and enjoy going straight to the fields many months of the year.

    Basic Needs & Security Calculate Your Water Footprint
    What is one way you will reduce your water use? What is a practice you already have that helps you reduce your water use?

    I have a small water footprint, until its accounted for food and travel.  If only the small positive choices we make on a daily basis with our personal living habits could translate into more water saved. Calculating my personal footprint helps me imagine how much water large corporations and facilities use on a daily basis, and how important “efficient” facilities are, and why making large changes and building with conservation in mind is so important!

    Basic Needs & Security Take 5-Minute Or Less Showers
    With 5-minute or less showers reducing your water footprint, what do you plan to add next to your water conservation habits?

    I’ve always been fairly water conscious, but showers are for sure the place I waste the most. Paying attention to what I’m doing in the shower, and planning ahead to not “dally” while getting ready has helped me cut down shower time.

    I wanted to make sure I joined this challenge again this year since I learned SO MUCH last year. This year has been more challenging; I’ve been busier, feeling more stressed, and just not feeling positive about the state of the world. Even though I haven’t checked in daily, when I do I know I’m making a lot of small changes, even when I’m not checking in. Something that matters to me and will continue to matter. The daily tasks make me realize how much I DO accomplish daily, weekly, monthly, and that the real point of all this is to have tasks become positive lifestyle changes! I’m changing slowly, and continuing my good habits, and I know it makes a small difference! Happy exploring, and I hope everyone makes a little bit of difference today!

    I’m super excited to try out the company Ridwell! They take many different materials that I haven’t been able to properly recycle or trash in the past. There are also many different waste facilities that are located in the surrounding counties that I now will utilize!

    I made the most of my mini staycation, and didn’t travel more than 100 miles away from my house. By planning driving loops I was able to enjoy new and fun places while ending back near my house at night!

    Climate & Ecosystems Explore My Area
    How can spending more time outdoors enhance your sense of place? Was there a new place in your region that was exciting to learn about and visit?

    I’ve been exploring almost weekly for as long as I remember, and if I don’t get my outdoor time in, it really effects my mental health! But I was getting stuck visiting the same places, so this has made me try new ones! I found a new beach that is now going to be one of my favorites!
