Lifestyle Project

Click the orange icon to get the handouts.  The Lifestyle Project is a way for you to learn about the energy you use in your everyday life and to reduce your environmental footprint by modifying your lifestyle. The project is a four-week exercise, beginning with a measurement of your “baseline” behavior followed by three weeks in which you reduce your consumption of water, energy, and/or high-impact foods and reduce the amount of material you throw away. The idea of this project is to make changes in your lifestyle that will reduce the amount of resources you use and have a beneficial effect on the environment. The changes aren’t difficult, but they are significant. Mostly they will require planning and thinking about your actions.

Week 0: Jan 11- Jan 15 Pick three "average" days and document quantitatively your consumption in the Excel spreadsheet.

Week 1:  Jan 18- Jan 22. Reduce your energy use and environmental impact over 2 days and document this in your journal (you do not need to record quantitative data).

Week 2:  Jan 25 - Jan 29. Reduce your energy use and environmental impact over 3 days and document this in your journal (you do not need to record quantitative data).

Week 3:  Feb 1 - Feb 5.  Reduce your energy use and environmental impact over 4 days and document this in your journal. In addition, record quantitative data for 3 of the 4 days and record it in the Excel spreadsheet.
