    This has been making me think about my water usage.  Instead of running the water when I wash the dishes, I shut it off, and only run it when it is needed.  I find this challenge is helping me see the amount of water I am wasting in other areas too.

    It can be a challenge to take 5 minute showers, especially when it is cold outside and the heat of the water is so refreshing.  I have a new strategy though which is making it work.

    I compost food at home, but I have to think about this at work.  Brought home my apple core to put in our compost vs the trash at work.
