As mentioned in our Environmental Update, CIR has pledged again this year to encourage all of our employees to carpool, bike, walk or take public transportation to work on Earth Day, Thursday, April 22nd, to help demonstrate WNY's commitment to going green.

I have pledged as an individual, and hope to be leaving my car at home on Earth Day again this year.  I continue to have a tricky schedule with work, school and mom duties, but at least I'm not scheduled to work that day.  The only problem may be the fact that my final studio review falls on the same day.  I could run into last-minute scheduling problems, or need to be hauling a large model, but it's impossible to predict at this point.

If all goes as planned, I can take the NFTA-Metro bus to UB South Campus for my studio review at any point after my daughter gets on the school bus in the morning.  Since my class usually goes late on Thursdays, my next-door neighbor picks my daughter up from the after-school program at 6pm when she picks up her kids, so I don't have to worry about picking her up.  Barring any unforeseen circumstances, I should be able to just take the bus home.

As you know, CIR is now on Facebook and Twitter.  Be sure to follow us, among other things, I'll be posting updates of my adventures trying to be car-free on the day of my final studio review when I can.

We capture the water from the basement dehumidifier for reuse as part of the initial fill of laundry water. In the grand scheme of things, this is about 4 gallons per week in the summer, but it is better than sending it down the drain. >> More
