This series has assisted me in being able to reduce the level of my “footprint” that I’m making. Unfortunately this calculater isn’t asking me the actual key questions to show the amount that I’ve reduced it.
My Landlord in the last 5 years has replace my waterheater, furnace, fridge, and washer with more eco-friendly units. I’ve replaced most of my lightbulbs with the new florencent ones, replaced shower heads, go to the farmers market when open (MN has an tendency to close open air markets during the winter), three people share one car so there is never a time that there isn’t two or more individuals inside it. Recycling is manditory for Minneapolis or they charge you extra and I recently found out that our energy source is the beautiful Mississippi River.
I may not have won any money that some of the people on the show have received, BUT the savings that have incurred I do consider myself a Winner. My gas bill, energy bill, and household expense was reduce by 2/3 last year and that was with the gas prices being through the roof expensive.
Thank you so much WASTED for pointing out the little things that have help my household reduce our footprint and save us MONEY.
