sarah's Actions


Adjust the Thermostat

Do at Home

I will adjust my thermostat down 2 degrees from usual when I use the heat, and up 2 degrees when I use air conditioning.



Family Game Hour

Do at Home

I will spend quality time with family and friends by playing low-tech game(s) and/or through the spirit of imagination.

One-Time Action


Exercise Daily

Do at Home

Exercise is a great stress blaster! I will exercise for 20 minute(s) each day.




Do at Home

I will write down three things every day that I am grateful for, or send one email every day thanking or praising someone.



Skip the Straw

Do at Home

Plastic bags and small plastic pieces like straws are most likely to get swept into our waterways. I will keep 1 plastic straw(s) out of the landfill and ocean each day by refusing straws or using my own glass/metal straw.



Use a Reusable Water Bottle

Do at Home

I will keep 4 disposable plastic bottle(s) from entering the waste stream by using a reusable water bottle.



Support Comerica's National Day of Service

As an extension to Comerica's National Day of Service in September, consider conducting a virtual volunteer action that supports our communities. Since there are no organized in-person river, beach or lake clean-ups in most communities this year, if you would like, you can consider cleaning up around your house and neighborhood to support your local environment as neighborhood storm drains commonly drain to local water bodies. Please do not invite others outside of your household if you choose this action.
