Challenge #4: In the Dark?
For the past several weeks we’ve been teaching ourselves to live in the dark. Not completely, although candlelight is quite calming and romantic, but rather we’re making a conscientious and concerted effort to turn lights off throughout the house unless they are absolutely necessary. No exceptions. Sounds easy, right? Well, it should be…but for some reason it’s not normal behavior. Hallway lights, staircase lighting, and accent lighting were often left turned on. That habit is quickly changing.
Challenge #1: What’s your carbon footprint?
This year we’ve resolved to get leaner and greener: a 52-week commitment to making a new green-inspired choice every week in order to form new habits and greener behaviors. By the end of the year we hope to emit measurably less carbon and leave a smaller footprint.
