    We have a fairly good recycling program at our office, but it can be improved! I've been researching ways we can recycle items that can't be put into our regular recycling bin. I've found a company who has special boxes that can be filled with items that are generally non-recyclable and I have signed my company up for a box. We're on a waiting list for a free box, but pending that approval, I'm requesting that we have a paid box in our office to reduce our break room garbage.
    Waste Compost Food Waste
    New to composting? Be sure to check out the action resource links to learn tips and more about it. As you transition from throwing food away to composting, what do you notice about how much you are tossing? Do you know how your compost will be used and the benefits it has on the environment?

    i've learned we compost a good amount of food in my house.  We need to adjust our food production.

    I don't feel like such a waster anymore.
    Waste Choose Two-Sided Printing
    Choosing two-sided printing can be an easy adjustment on your computer settings. How can you help others make this same switch? Can it be encouraged company wide?

    I put a sign on our printer to encourage 2 sided printing.  LETS GO!

    This challenge has been really fun! I am a pretty eco-conscious person, but there is so much more to learn. Having my eyes opened to so many environmental issues I didn't know about will definitely impact my choices going forward.

    Biking to work on weekdays and for errands on the weekends is a habit for me - I do it without encouragement of any "challenge".  It will be a great time when people ride because it's the right and good thing to do.
