    I must say that I HATE searching for parking spaces.  What a waste of time! Instead, I can enjoy the California sun, nice breeze and exhale less CO2 than my car will emit!

    What's next? Room occupancy controls- movement and timers. They are cheap can can be controlled from my cell phone.
    Food Keep Track of Wasted Food
    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. Where would you rather use this money?

    I went food shopping this evening. I buy the nearly at sell-by date food - it’s usually reduced and lasts much longer than the sell by date anyway.

    Transport Advocate For Greener Vehicles
    How does advocating for green vehicles in your community connect to your values? How might you be able to get others involved in advocating for the shift to fuel-efficient vehicles?

    We’re planning to introduce a green car only policy at my company, Pure Planet - electric and hybrid. Feels progressive as a company policy, but I’m pleased it will be normal for all in not many years.

    I’m going to cycle to the train station more frequently - daily if the weather is good. I might even upgrade to an electric bike to make the journey a little easier.

    A sustainable community is one in which tolerance and human rights, health, peace and security, environmental sustainability, institutional responsibility, economic and social equity prevail.

    I helped our company Pure Planet introduce a new equal parental policy, which encourages gender equality and parents - regardless of gender, sexuality or how they identify - care better for baby girls and boys, giving them a great start to life.
