What are you going to do today -- and every day -- to help protect and take care of our planet?

Some of the things I want to do are:

1) Have fewer lights on in the house
2) Pack more of Joelle's lunch in re-usable containers instead of plastic baggies
3) Continue composting all of our fruits & vegetable peels
4) Cool the house in summer more with open windows (at least in the mornings) than with air conditioning

There are many things we can each do to help preserve our planet. What are some things YOU are doing or will start doing? Every person's efforts make a difference!

We talked a lot about caring for creation in Fresno and with MCC. One thing that I hadn't thought about was eating locally, since the amount of fossil fuels it takes to truck our food all over the place is incredible. And bread! Apparently it takes the most energy to produce, even behind meat (because goodness, I could cut back on those carbs!)
