    Learning about methane digesters was interesting and helpful.  I didn’t know that much about them...methane is like a dirty word, but this was helpful.

    Felt great to drop off 2 boxes of techno trash and electronics today knowing it will get recycled and is not going to the landfill.

    Some things that I already do are refusing straws at restaurants. I also bring my own container to take leftover food home. What I want to focus more on is "Rethinking"...rethinking if I need something or if I need to get rid of something, what can I do instead of throwing it away (upcycle, reuse, donate, etc.)

    I will no longer carelessly pick past the eggs with the closer sell by date. After doing some reseach I found that eggs are good for weeks after the sell by date.

    We are creatures of habit. I used to eat meat at most or all of my meals because it's what I was used to. It was the way I ate growing up. I think sometimes we do things to excess in our country. Now I don't consider meat a necessary component of each meal. You can get as many, if not more, of the same nutrients from plant-based foods. I eat...

    The benefits of smaller portions is multi-faceted. You don't have to buy as much food to provide for the same number of meals. You can buy higher quality food with the savings. There's less waste with smaller portions. You'll feel better and probably lose weight.

    Ironically, I would spend the dollars saved on food. Specifically, grass fed and finished beef, free range chicken, organic produce, etc. My current budget doesn't allow for much in the way of these more healthful foods, but if I factor in less waste, the same budget should net me higher quality food.

    Each person can make an individual impact by being more aware of their actions and the consequences for all.

    We've thrown out a lot of food over the years because we thought the dates meant it was not safe to eat. Now that I know the date isn't a safety issue, we will check the food first rather than just throwing it away.

    I love to travel, so that is what I would do with the money saved!
