    Water 5-Minute Showers
    Five minute showers are an impressive step toward reducing your water footprint. What is the next step you can take?

    Mason Ihrke 11/12/2019 6:43 AM
    Taking shorter showers is a good start on saving water, another thing I could do Is to plug and fill the sink with water while doing dishes instead of just running the water.

    How might spending more time outdoors enhance your brainpower?

    Mason Ihrke 11/07/2019 4:25 PM
    When I am outside in the wilderness I feel calm and undisturbed and it is good for releaving stress. I like to go on walks into the woods and hear nothing but nature. It calms me down a lot.

    Energy Adjust the Thermostat
    Your utility company is able to tell you your average energy usage. Ask them how your energy usage compares to others in your ZIP code, region, and/or state. What other steps can you take each day to reduce your electricity usage?

    Mason Ihrke 11/07/2019 10:48 AM
    I always keep my thermostat off and open the window if I want to change the heat in my room.
