“Dear PoPville,

Curious what people in DC are doing at an individual level to change their habits and their impact on the earth.

For example, today, I hung out my laundry, used captured rainwater to water my plants, purchased toilet paper in a paper wrapper, turned my thermostat up to 78F, re-used a ziploc freezer bag, ate no meat, and collected all my food scraps for composting at the Farmer’s Market and searched in vain for a place to refill my laundry and dish-soap containers.

What else are people doing or where are they shopping to decrease their waste and carbon footprint?

Ed. Note: I’m hearing from a lot of folks interested in solar panels and composting. I’d say that’s the top two things I see from other DC folks.
