    I already use mostly LED bulbs in my home, so not many need to be changed!

    Our Athletics department actually invested in reusable mugs for all employees. Upon hire, employees receive their "Spider Mug" and it's been a great way to keep the styrofoam cups out of the kitchen!

    I live in an area that's very walkable, and sometimes find myself taking unnecessary trips when I could get outside and take a walk instead. This week, I paid more attention to the distances and last night ended up walking to a restaurant that was only a few blocks away, when I normally would've driven.
