    The other day at Natural Grocers there were no unwrapped cucumbers.  I asked the produce manager why only the wrapped cucumbers.  She told me that because prices were up she didn't order the regular cukes  but got the cheaper ones in the wrapper instead.   So I mentioned that I don't buy produce in a plastic wrapper.

    In what ways is social media an effective tool for sharing your values?

    If you choose the appropriate site to share your information, you can see how many people have looked at your posting.    

    Recently I shared a posting about cleaning up after yourself at the beach and I posted it to the concierge page for a particular beach.   Many people responded positively and re-shared the posting.   

    So I think that being specific with your posting is more productive than a random posting, although that can't hurt as a backup plan.

    How does the act of picking up litter connect you more to your community?

    You gain a sense of pride and ownership when you keep your community clean in some small way.    Along with that is frustration, sometimes anger  at those who care so little for the community where they live, work and play.

    Today I mowed the grass with my battery powered mower and put the clippings in my compost pile.   It's coming along and the stuff on the bottom is slowly turning into soil.    Since I started composting there is very little trash as I rarely buy packaged food and have been a vegetarian for decades.   

    I finally bit the bullet and turned the hot water setting down on my water heater.   Can't say that long hot showers are my only vice  but have definitely tried to shorten them a bit.

    Picked up a few pieces of trash today on my daily walk with my Minnie, the cutest dog in the world.   So what's up with people who pick up their dog's poop in a plastic bag and then leave the bag on the ground?

    Last summer I saw the movie Straws.  Go to the Straws Facebook page to see how your group can see this thirty minute documentary.

    Yesterday I returned from a month at South Padre Island volunteering as a beach patroller for Sea Turtle Inc.   If only the number of sea turtle tracks equaled the number of pieces of trash we all pick up on a regular basis.   It is mind     blowing to see the disregard  to our beautiful   beaches.   It's easy to get overwhelmed and very discouraged.  All together we can make a difference.   So today when I shopped all produce went into my mesh bags and my reusable bags from Natural Grocers.  Today I will be composting and making my own yogurt.
