    Being in the moment, seeing the waste I am creating. Often when I am doing something I am thinking about the next thing I am going to do, I am not thinking about what impact I am having right now. This challenge helped me stop and think about the paper napkin in front of me and realize I was taking it home with me to add to my daily waste...

    I have added many plants to my indoor spaces, cleaning the air. I journal almost daily, have a daily Buddhist practice, attend several yoga classes a week at my neighborhood studio. I also have almost eliminated animal products from my diet eating a mostly plant based diet.I eat mostly unprocessed foods.

    Ikea will except batteries and light-bulbs. This is helpful since one of my challenges was to change out light-bulbs to LED. I also found Plastic Lizard in St Johns. They take plastic caps and lids. Both of these I found through the facebook page I belong to, Zero Waste PDX.

    I have maxing out my steps everyday on fit bit by walking and taking breaks at work to get up and walk around.

    I need too buy less and start selling and giving more stuff away. I like the ideas of minimalism. Maybe 1 day :)
