    Today I learned about contributions to the climate crisis.  Using fossil fuels not only causes climate change, it causes respiratory illness. The top actions we can take, include: Reduce air travel, go vegetarian or vegan, bike or walk instead of drive, produce less trash, compost and use a clothesline instead of a dryer.

    I learned that cayenne pepper is a safe solution to deter animals from digging up in our yard

    Hey Team Santa Barbara, let's keep those positive actions going.  The top 8 teams are all competing closely.  We were in 4th place but we dropped to 6th place this morning.  Try out some new actions today and share with the team what you learned or appreciated about it.
