    Energy: a. This was a challenge for me because I do not have to pay for my own energy. Therefore, it was hard to remember to turn off the lights.  b. This can help the environment because we saw first hand the amount of BTU we were using. By turning off or unplugging I can save the environment. I’m  c. I discovered that doing cheesy things...

    The five  minute shower is a real challenge for me. I am very conscious of conserving and recycling in all aspects of my life and encouraging my family to do the same, but a warm shower is my "me time" and is my biggest environmental vice!
