    I did an energy audit of my home and I found that our home scored between average and great. I learned that upgrading some appliances to their energy efficient versions would improve my home's energy audit. I also found out that if I changed my AC setting from 74 degrees to 78, that I could have a potential savings of up to $546.00/year.

    Today I took the time to go to Waste Management's website for my area to see what exactly is acceptable to be placed into our recycle bin for curb pick-up. I was surprised to learn that plastic containers numbered 1-7 are recyclable through curb pick-up. When I was on the website, I also took the time to contact a representative via email as...

    I learned that about half of the products I currently use are on the safer end of the spectrum (yay!). I already do try to by as many natural products with recyclable packaging as I can and the database provided in the "Learn More" section really makes it easy to find alternative products for my not so safe products that I currently...

    I have a few native plants that I planted years ago. My mexican sage attracts hummingbirds and I just noticed last week that my lilac bush had many butterfly visitors.

    To create a zero waste day is a challenge. I know there are other products in lieu of paper towels that I should consider purchasing.

    Today I learned about how to recycle socks. For some reason every Christmas I have been receiving a plethora of socks. Needless to say after a few years and my sock drawer is overflowing and I have been thinking what can I do with all these socks?? My favorite idea from the suggestions I read, which varied from darning to repurposing for...

    I really find it so fascinating to learn about the different types of native bees. In particular, I read about the mason bee today and all the information I found was very enlightening. For one, six mason bees can pollinate a fruit tree, compared to 10,000 honey bees. Secondly, I learned that mason bees like to pollinate close to their homes,...

    I know I need to eat less beef and chicken. What I do eat, as often as I can it's organic, humanely raised.

    I learned that my water footprint was lower than the average US citizen (yay!), but I also learned that their are a lot of areas that I can improve. I think one of the easiest ways for me to effectively change my water footprint would be to adopt a more plant based diet (that was my most water heavy footprint).
