    A choice that I could make that would do more good and less harm is creating a compost bin to improve soil in gardens and reduce my impact on the environment.

    Other easy things that I do to save energy and reduce my environmental footprint are turning off my lights when they are not needed and turning off unnecessary electronics when I am not using them like my TV and fan.

    Where I live, electricity is generated using solar panels, wind, and dual-fuel. Transitioning farmland to solar panels, to produce energy is becoming very popular in southern Minnesota.
