I enjoyed this article, especially the middle part about ways and reasons to change habits to affect the environment. I know planting a garden is not an easy task, but I was thinking about growing some herbs at least, even without reading this article. And I think that making changes do affect the people around you.
And that's part of the reason I want to buy a Prius, since Brentan and I have to buy a car. And hopefully we do buy a car soon, it is exciting that we will be able to go more places. That's my weakness though, lots of (desire to) travel, and sometimes not needed consumer goods. (Oh, how do I love shopping!)
