Carbon diet update

Yesterday I bought more CFL bulbs and replaced two incandescents. Next I will buy some surge protectors and shut things down at night. The clothesline we ordered should arrive any time now, too. I am planning to check my kWh use this month vs one year ago. I expect I'll see a reduction.

Found a great way to curb my appetite for chocolate goodies. I read online about the child slavery so common in cocoa production in the Ivory Coast.

So the path to peacemaking is very personal today. Hope the carbon team makes a bit of headway.

Peace y'all

On cutting carbon

my office eco-team is not doing well and I don't know what I can do about it. My default communication tool is email, and maybe that's the wrong tool. Anyway, I will keep plugging away. So much to share, but --- when? more to come

Peace, y'all
