Item 10: what I plan to do to help #savetheplanet

When starting this project I decided ten items was the optimum. So this is the last post for my first time around. If I still lived in a house or a townhouse, I would be looking into adding additional insulation to the walls and attic, installing an attic fan, upgrading the windows, caulking the windows, getting a more efficient water heater, installing solar, and changing the color of the house and its roof, and more. But I live in an apartment. I have caulked the window seams but the other options simply aren’t possible. That doesn’t mean I’m without options.


Replace my water-consuming toilets with low-water-use alternatives. I’ve chosen in the past not to spend the cash to replace toilets that still work. That decision has sent a lot of drinkable water down into the sewer system over the years. At the moment, I can’t think of any other upgrades that would save energy in the short or long-term.

Suggestions and comments appreciated.
