    As I said earlier, I will continue to follow what I have promised in my challenge choice actions; I love it.

  • Emily Ndungu 10/24/2018 9:17 AM
    Yes, I have reached my mark for this challenge! I have fulfilled my promise.

  • Emily Ndungu 10/23/2018 8:04 PM
    I have kept the choice challenge commitment and I want to follow through and beyond tomorrow-the challenge day.

    We are almost there! I walked 10 minutes, ate two meatless meals, enjoyed my home-grown herbs and mints, put my peels and left overs in the compost, and separated the recyclable materials. 

  • Emily Ndungu 10/22/2018 8:53 AM
    I have put my peels to the compost, walked 30 minutes, used the organic ingredients on my meals, had a meatless meal, carried a reusable bag with me, and selected the recyclable items.  
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use Reusable Bags
    What do you do if you find yourself in the situation of needing a bag for items but don't have a reuseable one with you? Carry things out in your hands? In a cart? Accept a disposable one? If you find yourself in this position often, what system could you put in place to try to establish this a successful habit?

    Emily Ndungu 10/22/2018 8:48 AM
    I would put reusable bags handy when I am travelling.

    Three more days to go! I ate 1 meatless meal, walked 30 minutes, put the peels and leftover food to the compost, used the organic ingredient. 

  • Emily Ndungu 10/20/2018 7:28 PM
