    around the garage, I started installing with the help of my dad some solar panels to charge some pieces of equipment he uses for his company. Instead of having them charge all day in the wall plug, he will now plug them in batteries powered by these solar panels.

    With all the compost we produce at home, we started throwing it into a compost bin in our backyard a few years ago. With the years, it has growed a lot, so we decided to take a part and distribute it in the plants. Compost helps the plants to grow, and it helped us get rid of some extra instead of throwing it out.

    I have now cut all transportation methods that use gas for more than a week to replace them with my bike. I have had a minimum of 20km per day to travel, but because sports are cancelled due to covid, I decided to exercice while minimizing the pollution I used to produce. This has been really good for my personal health, and has saved approximately 35 pounds of co2 every day.
