    Switched out all of the light bulbs in my apartment to LED's - 18 in total! Only cost about $2 dollars a piece at Costco. :)

    Used my United miles to buy some carbon offset credits for my two business trips coming up via the Capricorn Ridge Wind Project! So cool!

    Going to try and track my wasted food. I've always wanted to do this and see if it would make sense to start composting. Might be a harder challenge getting my roommates on board! I also want to explore carbon offset credits as I have 4 plane trips in the next month alone.
