Are you Sustainable?
I've been thinking a lot lately about how my actions as an individual have an impact on the world at large. Reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver helped me learn more about food and the world (while having a very engaging reading experience and not feeling like I was being lectured), and I just stumbled across a new website that helps people, families, and businesses figure out how sustainable they are: Make Me Sustainable. Anyone can register on the site for free, and there are a ton of great features. You can enter your own information and see how doing small things can make a big difference (such as keeping your car tires properly inflated or setting your hot water heater at a certain temperature). You can even look for other people in your community and join groups if you wish. I just signed up today and I'm looking forward to using this site to help make my own life more sustainable.
