Paper or plastic? Bus or car? Old house or new? Does recycling really make a difference? Should I pay for solar panels or better insulation? More Americans are asking these questions as they try to make lifestyle changes toward more environmentally-friendly lives. Unfortunately, many consumers are flooded with advice based on emotion, not science, and are left confused about which are really the most important decisions.

For nearly a decade, local resident Christian Wagley has used research from the Union of Concerned Scientists to help guide actions in his own life. He'll share with us the teachings he follows as reported in the book: The Consumer's Guide to Effective Environmental Choices, including 11 "Priority Actions for American Consumers"--a list that can help you decide where to focus on improving your own life in ways that make the most difference.
If you find yourself interested in the following things, join us:• Sustainable land use and construction practices• Harmonious living between human and natural communities• Creation and preservation of beauty• Socially and environmentally conscious action• Fascinating conversation• Excellent food and drinkWe will have the S.W.E.L.L. meeting once a month at different locations in South Waltonto appreciate each others’ company and provide a place for conversationabout creating an abundant future.If you would like to be included on our list, send an email to: chandra@cfhdesignstudio.comAlso, check out our blog at: consider the environment before printing this e-mail.Hope to see you there.• Susan Horn • Chandra Hartman
