This is Tom…without chapstick

January 25, 2012

Chicago science blogger

A self-photo I took on Sunday January 22, 2012, two days after a foot of snow had fallen on parts of Chicago. The image tells the story of how simple conservation can be.

  • Working hard to abandon my love of lip balm (Chapstick) and the energy involved with manufacturing & transporting it, I’ve decided that chapped lips are underrated.
  • Avoid shaving for a few days to save water and electricity.
  • Shop at Patagonia (or a Salvation Army thrift store).
  • Spend time outdoors.

Thank you for reading. 🙂
