    UU DD just hosted a Sustainable Fashion presentation.  You can also get your sustainable fashion points (In Industry) by watching some interesting documentaries.  If you are interested we can host a video for the June Cinema CAT.

    Just did the carbon offset calculator shared for today.  It took less than ten minutes and required no electric bills.  It is a very general calculator, but you can see how different decisions change your carbon footprint.
    This is a double-duty calculator.  One of the offset programs offered by Tradwater is used to buy up rusting CFC canisters and dispose of them properly- eliminating warming from refrigerants!

      I keep my compost in the bottom fridge drawer.  This silicon microwave popper is the right size for a week of juicer scraps and is squishy  enough to fit in and out of the drawer.

    What a fabulous start to our challenge- 100% participation at last night's CAT meeting.  You rock!  I see this feed as a place to post our joys and sorrows in our quest for a low carbon life.  Share pictures of what works for you.  Ask for tips on things you are trying to figure out.  You probably want to check the box that says POST ONLY TO MY TEAMS FEED. Unless you have a message for the World!
