    I loved this challenge! It definitely helps me to think more about any actions I take. Overall I loved this challenge!

I was under the impression these were all one...

         I learned a lot from participating in the Eco-Challenge.  I chose to pick 6 goals and I only achieved all six once.  On average I reached about half of my daily goals.  I learned that it is very hard to achieve all my goals each day.  Living a life where I am aware of the damage the decisions I make to the environment is beneficial.  To...
