    Wasn't able to meet it every day, but made me more aware to try!

    Learned I could take a few moments and appreciate our resources, Mother Nature and think more about the choices I make and how it affects it all!

    Thank you for another fun year of Ecochallenge. I find that the thoughts and habits that occur during this challenge overflow into the rest of my year.  Can you add a civic involvement section next year? Thank you again!

    Indigenous speaker and activist Winona LaDuke says that, "most indigenous ceremonies, if you look to their essence, are about the restoration of balance — they are a reaffirmation of our relationship to creation. That is our intent: to restore, and then to retain balance and honor our part in creation." Why is balance important to sustainability?

    Our ecosystem is a delicate balance and needs to be protected.  The earth is in trouble and we all need to do our part to get our ecosystem back in balance.  Otherwise our earth will continue to see the negative effects and our planet will die.

    I was annoyed at the apparent excessive amount of material used to create the new-fangled 6-pack carriers.  Then I learned PakTech handles are made in Eugene and I may be able to take them here for recycling:

    heard a nice story on OPB about EU phasing out plastics (i.e., plastic straws contaminating the ocean). took a minute to research further:

    a lot of good news in there!

    Please vote. And consider voting yes on 26-201, a Portland, OR clean energy community benefits initiative: A yes vote is a vote in favor of requiring retailers with a total annual revenue of over 1 billion dollars and Portland annual revenue over 500,000 dollars to pay a 1% surcharge on gross revenue from retail sales to fund clean energy projects and job training. Thanks

    I bike to work and see the same houseless people daily. Today I said hello to one of them as I pulled up to a red light. He said, "Good Morning, thank you for saying hi." It made me want to cry. It is good to acknowledge our fellow human beings and all living things.

      good work! i have been gathering good food (some that wont get eaten quickly) from around the house and putting it into little packs. when driving/walking around PDX, I hand out these to homeless people. this helps with the food trash cycle a bit; and hopefully helps the homeless folks. sure wish we had a better solution.
