Hank's Actions


Use a Reusable Water Bottle

I will keep 2 disposable plastic bottle(s) from entering the waste stream by using a reusable water bottle.



Switch to Cold Water

I will switch to washing my clothes in cold water, saving up to 133 lbs of CO2 a month and 1,600 lbs of CO2 over the course of the next year.

One-Time Action



I will write down three things every day that I am grateful for, or send one email every day thanking or praising someone.

    I washed my clothes in cold water instead of warm and the only difference was that I saved water.  I saved a lot of water and that is insane.  Might have to keep doing this challenge because there wasn't a change and I am helping the earth.

      I may have to also switch to using cold water when I wash my clothes. Only if I could hang them up to dry but that is a lot of work and they might smell weird so I think I'll pass.

      It's not only water saved! It's all the fossil fuels used to heat and then clean that water. That's a key point I've been trying to emphasize in class.  It's all about the fossil fuels!

      I wish I could just do one load with everything on cold, but my mom always taught me to wash towels and undergarments on hot, so that switch would be a challenge for me. Glad to see someone can do it though!
