    Energy Choose LED Bulbs
    Switching out your lightbulbs is an excellent first step toward energy efficiency! In what other ways can you exercise your civic duty to protect the environment and reduce carbon emissions?

    Drive less, fly less, use less water and therefore energy, go meatless, etc.

  • Reflection Question
    Waste Find Local Recycling Depots
    Our ability to recycle certain things ebbs and flows based upon many factors, including market demand for recyclables. Luckily there are places that accept uncommon things to recycle or dispose of in a less harmful way. What did you find when looking for places to recycle items that can't be recycled in your curbside bin?

    When researching more about where to take recyclable materials that shouldn’t be put in your average burnside bin, I found the Recycle Coach app. This app is provided to us by the Ecology Action Center and features information on every single piece of material that can be recycled and where to take it. From airbags to X-rays, this app is very informative in the recycling process.

      It's an excellent tool to stop "wishcycling" when you just hope it will be recycled.
