    I learned that I could easily , and very comfortably, eat primarily vegetarian or vegan meals. A number of days I ate such meals only, and my body was very happy -- not hungry!

      It’s close to 8:30 and they’ve pulled ahead by 500 points!    By the way, I know that some people have not liked the fact that Ecochallenge will give you 150 points if you donate $30 to them, but I disagree.  This is a complicated and expensive infrastructure and it’s free, but the only way to fund it is through participants.  I really appreciated that they offered that many points for just a $30 donation. It’s one of the smallest amounts I’ve ever been asked for and this kind of action to donate does help climate change activists.  My two cents!  But no matter, I am so grateful for this challenge and our efforts to make a difference.  Thanks to all!

    Higher standards of living are very often dependent on moving our environmental costs elsewhere. What are some specific ways in which the environmental impacts of your own lifestyle might be shifted elsewhere?

    taking   a plane, increases the CO2 footprint for us all, while claiming
    that I am really not impacting others...consuming so much gas for my vehicle, while
    thinking I am not affecting others, really is making others lives more harmful..by
    reinforcing companies going and taking advantage of lax laws in other countries which end up costing them and us all...and our environment.

    Better since I became more committed, spurred on by the realization, so demonstrated in Gwynne Dyers book Climate Wars, that, in the end, it is up to the citizens to rise up and take action. "Carpe diem"

    Really happy about how much I've been able to move pleasurably into using more and more of my growing collection of vegetarian and vegan recipes!
