    I'm noticing that most of these challenges just come down to convenience. This is no exception. When looking in a store or shopping for food it comes down to 'do I need this, or do I wanna be more comfortable and convenient?'. Plus this saves me money which is a nice bonus.

    This is super easy to do. My desk top takes forever to turn on, but with the perspective of saving energy the powering down is way worth it.

    Name some of the human activities impacting the health of water systems, both locally (your watershed) and globally (freshwater and oceans). What can you do to improve the health of water systems?

    I actually started to trying to take less showers in general. Currently I average around 1-2 showers a month.

    What would a sustainable water future in your region look like? What needs to change?

    Less showers, more use of water just when needed. I know someone who uses their dirty laundry water as their toilet water. That's recycling.
