For now, my sustainability goals center around recycling everything I can, reusing as much as possible, and teaching my boys that everything does not have to be “new” and “improved!” I would like to shop less. I would like to reduce the amount of plastic garbage we create in my home. I would like to rely less and less on products that are wrapped in plastic and Styrofoam and cardboard. I would like to stop forgetting the cloth grocery bags in the trunk!
I would also like to consider ways I can consume less energy, but I currently live in a very old, drafty house and I attend a university 45 minutes away from home on a route that is not served by public transit. So I will be exploring what other ways I can be prepared for a low energy future.
