    This challenge has been quite a learning experience - especially in try to not use disposables.  I need to get a lot better at that!

    Green Drinks was great today. Did you know that the Icicle Brewing Co. contributes 1% of their profits to an ecological cause?
    I also learned that you can organize a wine tour with Link! Contact Selina Danko for more info.😊

    I read about waste management and that led me to ask questions about why they were starting to not accept glass in their recycling efforts.  We'll see what they have to say!

    Today I learned that salmon need water at a certain temperature to survive and there is not a lot of "wiggle room".  Cold water has more CO2 in it.  When fish are in warm water, it's like altitude sickness for us.

      Thank you for this understanding - though it makes me want to cry. . .

    the way they have set up the emergency alerts, you can just get the type you want; you don't have to get them all.
