So what do we do around here?
Recycle. Yup, since the 1970's. Berkeley was on it.
Twirly light bulbs. Yup. Nightlights in other areas to avoid turning on other lights.
Don't water the lawn, do mow it. If I could garden, I would find a way to do it with gray water. House plants and dog water get watered with last nights water glass leftovers.
Want an instant hot water heater. Clothesline, pulley kind.
