Thanks for this group. I am a Sustainable Designer, started waaaay back, now prices are lower and products are so much easier to get. I know Ross has information about home buyers incentives for chosing "Green" and Sustainable products. Thanks for all the links. It's funny, my electric bill never exceeds the $10.00 basic...however with all the taxes it's always $35.00. I called them once and asked how I could get it lower, the man said "you cannot go any lower, live a little and turn on an extra light now and again". NO WAY, like the comments below, I use CFL's and am freakish about turning lights off, unplugging, bla, bla, bla.

I would like to know how many people routinely turn off the lights in rooms they are not in. I do it all the time-- even to the point that I will do it in public places. I found myself turning off the light in the bathroom at school this week- twice. Once at Marylhurst and once at PCC. Oh! And again at Starbucks by work. Hmmmmm......

I got my bike over at the new/ish place on N Killingsworth (over by the Florida Room). They were so nice and helpful. My bike rocks. I love my bike. Did I mention I really like my new bike?

I just bought a new commuter bike and I can't wait to start riding my bike to work again--at least part of the time. Let's face it, in addition to environmental issues--gas prices are horrible, and in Portland with all the bike paths to ride on it is kind of hard to make the excuse to drive a car (at least when the weather is nice). I can recommend "Bike & Hike" is a great place to buy your new set of (cycling) wheels, what is your favorite local Portland bike shop?
