    It is good to be back in an ecochallenge, this time not with students but with FSB colleagues! I look forward to tracking our success together!

    I found I didn't have much overall trash on the day I decided to collect it all in one place. This is a result of several things. I already have begun to use permanent dishes and napkins instead of disposables, which has significantly reduced my trash load, and I was able to put several things in our recycle bin, which also reduces the trash that I leave. Finally, if we restarted the compost bin we used to have, I would have had even less trash!

    I see we have several students who have signed up and joined the team. I hope we can get the rest of the class involved soon.
