    I can see how eating foods that are Whole Foods and not processed foods can make all the difference

    This is my second day and I realized I got so use to drinking plastic water bottles then reusable bottles. On top of helping the environment it can help me save money.

    Walking has made me feel a lot better. I feel more energetic and I released a lot of stress by doing this.

    One thing I’ve noticed since starting this eco challenge you easily save water by flushing the toilet only when necessary.

      A popular saying for this is : If its Yellow, let it mellow, if its brown, flush it down. :)

    Staying active and walking a minimum 4 times of week has helped me in my weight loss.

    Taking 5 minute showers has rubbed off on my sisters.

    Today I’m grateful for another day of life. Also, I’m grateful that my family is always there for me. Lastly, I’m grateful for that I have the opportunity to go to school.

    I’ve been adjusting to only taking a 5 minute shower. Now that I’ve been doing it the last few weeks I noticed that’s it not too bad. You can save a lot of water and live a more sustainable life.

    I enjoyed a nature walk in the sun and smell the fresh air.
