change three ways

For a quick upgrade replace the bulbs in your 3-way light fixtures with LEDs to reduce energy use by up to 90%. Check out the label to make sure the “brightness” and “light appearance” are what you want. Also- speaking from experience- make sure the bulb fits in your lamp before you buy it. Then sit back and forget about it: LEDs last up to 50,000 hours. Easy peasy!

buy less food

Picture this: farmer plows and plants seeds, waters, protects, and harvests plants. And more, I’m sure. The harvest gets shipped to a grocery store. You buy fruit/veggies/meat/cheese and take it home. Time goes by. Food rots in fridge. You throw it away. Sanitation worker takes it to landfill.

How to change the end of this sad story? Buy less every week and commit to eating what you have.  What could be easier? For those of us who aren’t perfect, make the compost bin plan B.
