So, I decided that another good indication of the success of my project would be to measure my ecological footprint. I found a TON of great sites for doing so. This one was my favorite: http://www.myfootprint.org
Overall Project Goals: 1. Decrease our waste production, and our carbon footprint. 2. Post to my blog at least once a week, if not more 3. Increase awareness for recycling and reducing waste production 4. Show my support for local business, and show that it is easier and more cost-efficient to use these local gems rather than Big Business. 5. Find easy ways for the everyday busy person to save the planet, and save money!
