    I learned that there are many ways to make a small impact in our daily lives. Doing this challenge makes me realize every year how easy it is to make small changes that result in big results. Working together to help spread the word about recycling and conservation is always fun!

    I have not drank from plastic water bottles since we started the eco challenge. This really does make a difference!
