    I chose to start using a reusable water bottle as one of my daily actions because it's not only practical, cheap, and easy, but it also saves so much plastic from being sent to the landfill! I really recommend you guys try it out, it ended up being an easy switch for me and I hope to continue using a reusable water bottle every day!

    I can't believe we're already in the last week of the ecochallenge! Completing my daily actions each day has been easier than I thought, so I'm definitely going to continue doing them once this challenge ends! What about you guys?

    The rain is making me feel very happy and cozy today! I hope to take a nice walk around the park then curl up with a good book. I'm feeling very proud of myself and my team for being so consistent with our eco-challenge actions!

    It felt really weird asking for no straw when I got bubble tea today, but I have a reusable straw that's big enough to let the boba through so I used that instead!

    Today when I was washing dishes I compiled all of the food scraps left over and composted them!

    These check-ins have really been helping me stay consistent with my daily actions! I hope to continue doing these actions after the ecochallenge ends.

    Using reusable straws instead of plastic reduces your plastic waste output and prevents some toxic plastic from entering the environment!

    I've been saving 4-6 plastic bottles from being sent into the landfill each day by using a reusable water bottle!

    My roommate and I have been meaning to switch our electricity to the renewable energy option for a while now, and because of this challenge we finally made the switch!
