I am visiting a very environmentally conscious town, Arcata CA, and my daughter who goes to school here, only spends a little money like all college students, but what she spends is for sustainably free range meats and does her own compost, and I am doing my best! I visit the local coffee house that sends it's grounds for worm compost!

When my boyfriend and I moved in together, he said he'd do the dishes, but he wouldn't wash the plastic baggies that I throw into the sink to reuse. Last night he did all the dishes, including the plastic baggies! And, he is getting much better at putting the right thing into the right recycle bin. So. Cal--meet No. Cal.

I always unplug every appliance when not in use or when we leave the house. Just learned that you tv uses 10 percent of your monthly electric bill when it's off but still plugged in!

Finding a way to minimize the unwanted flyers that come in our mailbox. I've been recycling them, yet when I saw that we were still contributing to tree loss, I committed myself to a Google search and beginning the process.

Update: I thought you might want to know, Mindy, that the online registration forms for both unsolicited direct mail and phone calls both go back to the main page, at least on my iPad.

It seems as if I should be routed to a payment page after completing the form, yet I am taken back to the original page. I've done website programming, so I'm not unfamiliar with what should happen.

So, my info is not getting through. Others might be experiencing the same problem. If this is an area in which might help or provide suggestions, I would greatly appreciate that. Thank you.
