    I made my own water bank for my toilet tank today and installed it this morning. I look forward to seeing if it makes a difference in my water usage over time

    This challenge inspired me to take a deeper dive into sustainability. I want to keep momentum going, so I tried a few apps that have a similar concept. The one I liked the most is JouleBug. So, I challenge you to keep your momentum going. Find something like JouleBug to keep you going in the EcoChallenge off-season.

    This challenge has allowed me to be more mindful in the daily decisions that I make.
  • October 23 at 10:01 AM
    It's been rather exciting, trying to commit to and do some of the challenges. The great part is most of the actions can be adopted into our own daily actions rather easily.

    Incorporate more potatoes with the skin (boiled, baked, sauteed) and spinach in my melas.

    Inform and educate more people about water scarcity, especially as it becomes more of an issue and more apparent in some cities.
