What can you do?

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, which is the beginning of  Lent — a time period of 40 days during which many Christian cultures give up something until Easter comes.

Even though she is not Catholic or even particularly religious, for many years, Recycla saw Lent as a time to give up something, such as chocolate or chocolate or possibly even chocolate. This year, she is going to observe Lent by trying to live a little more lightly on Planet Earth.

These goals should not actually be difficult for her, but she intends to be more mindful and really focus on doing more to use less.

Whether you normally recognize Lent or not, this is an excellent opportunity to try something new, such as giving up meat on Mondays or giving up driving one day a week.
