    The utility where I live seems less flexible for renewable options, but this can be managed by personal initiation. To be honest, I have no idea if this is an option.

    WOO Earth Day was great in Watsonville

    As we all know, the only way to combat climate change is to work together. This reality felt especially true during the cleanup effort. I was shocked and disappointed with the amount of litter we found. Despite how disappointing the amount of garbage was, the communal rallying and positivity of cleaning everything up felt empowering and urged...

    My earthmonth ecochallenge has been an informative and grounding experience. Learning about different conservation issues and engaging in ways to make positive change has been really valuable. This has helped me keep sustainability at the forefront of everything I do throughout the day. The challenge of actually taking positive steps towards...
