      Personally, I started buying renewable energy credits (RECs) through Arcadia Power, a third party, to offset my apartment's power usage. There is a likelihood I will move to San Diego for grad school in the Fall, which is why I didn't do something more involved, such as subcribe to a community solar project. That being said, it looks like the energy utility in San Diego allows people to subcribe specifically to 100 percent renewables, so I will be in good shape if I go over there.

      Other than that, I have been trying to ride my bike more to the grocery store. My panniers can carry a lot, but I still probably need to make two trips in a given week to feed 2 people (yay exercise!).

      Impact can be in many different areas (carbon emissions, energy use, water, plastics, land use, advocacy etc etc). I just want to know something you're doing that helps the environment. It can be big or small, something you've done for a long time, just started or want to implement soon.

      I'll start, about 18 months ago I bought a bike and started cycling again. Most of my shorter journeys are now by bike and I'm looking at cycling to work.

      Environmental news is often really bleak, lets hear some positive efforts!
