    I feel like the challenge is going well. I've had no problems with any of the actions so far.

    I would agree it is a better option for everyone and its way healthier the problem is it is too expensive for to many people and needs to decrease in price to be used everywhere.
    Nature Practice Gratitude for Earth
    Kathleen Dean Moore says that a sense of gratitude leads to a sense of moral obligation. Do you agree? How can we cultivate a sense of gratitude as individuals, and as a society?

    Yes, I do agree with what Kathleen Dean Moore says about gratitude. We can use gratitude as individuals by helping each other or ourselves, which can lead to a better society.

    I can introduce myself to people and be respectful and responsible.
    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?

    You could turn off electric items that you are not using at the time. You could also go outside and just go for a walk and not be around electricity. You could use solar power as well. Unlike others, I don't use that much electricity in my zip code.
