    Great afternoon for a walk outside. I've been lowering my eco-footprint this week by not using any plastic bags when I visit stores. It's actually been a lot easier then expected. With all the options for reusable bags or paper, its a wonder why we haven't completely moved away from plastic bags altogether. Maybe soon though!

This made me have to be more diligent to meet my...

     I attempted to carry any trash I created for the day on my person today.  I actually had to give up by mid day this time because I had already accumulated more then I could carry in just my hands. I thought about strapping on a backpack to try and push through to the end of the day, but I figured the point was made. We create an incredible...
