    Walked to a restaurant, instead of picking a place that would require a car.

    My walks are either at sunrise or sunset, so it is a nice complementary pair of accomplishments under the Nature category!

    We have a Solar PV system installed for our home electricity.  Now we have little to no electricity bill.

    Intentionally brought leftovers for lunch so I was not tempted to buy anything that used packaging.

    So far, so good.  Required little change in habits to accomplish most goals.  Packing the kiddo's lunch is still a challenge- plastic baggies have been too handy to give up!

    Used my own grocery bags at the grocery store, and turned in recyclable plastic film at the collection center.
