What you are currently doing to make a difference? In 2014 I switched to bar shampoo, now we only buy bar soap and shampoo. Even better I buy it as We Fill and they get their shampoo bar from a local maker. I get to reduce my plastic use as well as the carbon output from having it travel across the country.

What I want to do? Get all natural gas out of my house and run 100% solar powered appliances/ etc.
