May Tracking

I mentioned last month that I’m keeping a closer eye on our recycling output (our trash is not minimal by zero-waste standards, but I’m comfortable with it) and our electrical usage. Here’s the update for May:

May 2014 electrical usage: 879 kWh.

May 2013 electrical usage: 823 kWh.

Average temperature for the month was exactly the same. Since last May we’ve purchased a small upright freezer, estimated to require 25-30 kWh of electricity per month. Even with that, though, it’s a small bump in the wrong direction.

Our recycling numbers did not drop from the March level, but they also didn’t increase. That’s nice, since our more active summer schedules can mean an uptick in food-in-boxes.
