Global Challenges

The Earth has many environmental challenges....clean water, clean air, enough food, population pressures, conservation of wetlands, energy use.

We can each play our part in finding sustainable solutions to these problems...and they don't have to impede our lifestyles...many of them are simple changes. Here are a few:

-Turn off the lights when you are not home
-Use public transportation (Where I live, it costs less for me to travel by public transportation than to drive a car, let alone the cost of parking).
-Water your lawn in early morning or late evening
-Start a compost pile and use it on your own vegetable garden or lawn
-Turn down your water heater
-Plan trips to multiple stores
-Buy bulk
