Lisa's Actions

At Home

Water conservation

Think about water savings. Turn off water while brushing teeth, washing dishes. Get a rain barrel for watering plants. Load dishwasher to optimize water usage.

DAILY ACTION

Belongings

Cruelty-free cleaning supplies

I will buy only those household cleaners (and cosmetics) that are NOT tested on animals. Animals are part of our environment and being kind to them is being kind to our environment. Most animal testing is not necessary and cruel. SO many great cruelty-free options these days.

    At Starbucks the other day (at Target, needed sustenance) and bought one of their sturdy reusable cups with top and straw for $3 and asked barista to fill that instead of using a throw-away cup. Now just keep it in my car with my reusable shopping bags so if I ever get a drink while shopping, no waste.

    I wish there were an app for my phone.  Is there?  I think I'd be better about doing it daily if there were.

      There isn’t, but if you have an iPhone and are viewing this site in Safari you can click this button (see picture) at the bottom of your screen and then click ‘add to home screen’ to make an app widget.

  • Reflection Question
    Week 1 Focus: Recycling and Composting Recycle Plastic Bags
    Has separating your plastic bags for recycling helped you identify how you might reduce how many you have? What are you doing differently now?

    Rarely/never take plastic shopping bags. Always use cloth bags. Whatever plastic bags we do end up with get recycled without fail but taking them to Home Depot.
