    Unfortunately, I was sick for the last week so I was not able to track my progress. I am back up and running with the Eco Challenge!

    I always try to recycle as much as I can but, learning about exactly what can be recycled and what can not be recycled will help me have a better understanding of this process.

    I've been using my reusable coffee cup all week at work to make sure that I am not adding paper cups into the landfill =)

    Little rough off to the start. Not because of the challenge, just remembering to log in every day when life is so busy. I'm working on it though!

    Today I was able to use my reusable coffee cup at work (2 cups of coffee). I am happy to know that two less cups will be added into the landfill because of my eco-friendly decision today.
