    If you focus on changing your behavior, you can accomplish a lot in a short time. The challenge really helped me measure the personal impact of myself and my family by recycling and working together.

    Went through garage to find more things to donate and recycle.

    I've been reading more about sustainability strategies. Some would be near impossible to implement in our family...but we are going to go bike shopping for two family members who need them. That will reduce car travel for one of them by over 50%.

    My wife and I love to hike the trails at the Dunes National Lakeshore. It is truly one of the most beautiful places on earth. Trust me.

    Our family recently started recycling in earnest. Hard to believe that we fill up a large bin every two weeks.
