The theme of July and August was energy conservation. Us here at the BC participated in this challenge by turning off excess lights and keeping our thermostat a few degrees higher than we usually would. We were also able to use our smart LED lamps rather than our overhead incandescents to further reduce energy consumption. As always, making a difference does not have to mean buying a bunch of new things or making drastic changes. The most sustainable changes come from small adjustments, and changing things over time. We didn’t move off the grid or buy all LED bulbs to reduce energy consumption, we turned up the temperature and used the LEDs we already owned. If you made any small changes for this challenge, let us know!
