    This challenge includes many things we already do in our home and home office.  It's great that I can support our team in this way!
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Choose Two-Sided Printing
    Choosing two-sided printing can be an easy adjustment on your computer settings. How can you help others make this same switch? Can it be encouraged company wide?

    Actually, I print as little as possible.  I prefer to store my records digitally.  All three printers in my home now have 2-sided capabilities which we use routinely whenever we require hard-copy documents.

    New to composting? Be sure to check out the action resource links to learn tips and more about it. As you transition from throwing food away to composting, what do you notice about how much you are tossing? How will you use your compost once it is ready?

    We have grown a garden at my home since about 1980.  Home-made compost has always been our principal source of fertilization.
