    Today my daughter and I participated in the St. Paul community clean-up.  We tracked what we picked up using the Marine Debris Tracker: 207 items, 93% of which was plastic.  Most found object was cigarette butts.  I highly recommend using the Marine Debris Tracker to help NOAA better understand the waste around our watershed!

    I use the Headspace app to stay present in the moment. I get lost worrying about things, and having a reminder to be grateful for what is happening right now is good for me.

    the water that lands around my house goes to the storm drains which flow half a mile west, directly into the Mississippi.  Everything it picks up in my yard makes its way to this river and some of it may even flow all the way to the Gulf of Mexico!

    My brother works in transmission planning as an electrical engineer, so we have many conversations about sustainable energy and energy issues in his industry. I'm inspired to act by his helpful education, as I know more of how and why things matter.

    Because of our food supply, and for the longevity of plants and trees who require pollination to grow. I just talked about pollination with my FYEX students and was proud that nearly all of them knew how critical pollinators are to growing and sustaining produce.

    We just bought a large composting container for our garden plot and I'm so excited! We will utilize the compost as organic matter for the garden, and as a space to discard rotten or inedible veggies we grow.
