    Lately I have been collecting water from all the rain we have received in the past days. Now I have a few containers for my house plants and don't fill out on my faucet so often. Our house air is still dry due to the heating system still running. I lower the thermostat though and I am breathing better and so do my plants.

    Why so many humans think they are not part of the whole biodiversity on our Planet? 
    What about you are what you eat...
    Just my two cents thought before going to bed :)

    Why is it so difficult to understand the impacts our purchases and waste have on other people, animals, and places? How might your experience with this challenge impact your future consumption and choices?
