    This eco-challenge has been really good for me. I did not realize how much water I used and how much I could truly save. Saving water has been so beneficial and has changed my daily routine for the better.

    Transportation Car Share
    Take a moment to think of places you frequent often (school, work, grocery store, natural areas). Could you choose one or two days a week to schedule driving with a friend, neighbor or co-worker to these places?

    Yes, I do feel like I can drive with a friend a few times a week. Since I am in college we use our cars but we try not to a lot. I carpool with 2-3 friends when we need to go to the store and grocery shop.
