Punch List
Created 08 Sep 2021
  1. Avoid air travel by taking bus, train, or carpool wherever possible. Purchase 2x offsets (onsets) for any flights.
  2. Enjoy a plant-rich diet by prioritizing vegetarian food options and limiting consumption of responsibly raised fish and poultry to 2 days per week, and other meats to 1 time per month.
  3. Continue a car-free lifestyle using transit, walking, biking, and scooters for all local and last-mile trips.
  4. Minimize electricity consumption in my home by using windows and shades for natural ventilation and cooling. Turn off large power consumers like TVs, monitors, and appliances when not in use.
  5. Be a zero waste champion partnering with Recology, a local waste and recycling service provider, to advocate for proper waste reduction, composting, and recycling practices in my building and in my city.
  6. Continue composting any food waste and making purchasing decisions to minimize and eliminate packaging.
  7. Use my skills as a communications designer to support projects and initiatives locally and globally to inform and inspire others to be engaged in regeneration.

A punch list can be for an individual, family, community, company, or city.  It is the list of the actions you or a group will undertake and accomplish over a predetermined span of time—one month, one year, five years, or more. You can make different lists for different time periods—this week and this year for example.
