    Although I was not able to fill the eco-challenge form every day, this activity did help me to change my habit. The action I picked for myself did improve my personal wellness. I got rid of the straws as plastic dumping is harmful to the world. I believe everyone must still remember the photo of a straw pulled from a sea turtle. We should try to do something to protect the environment,

    Eating whole food is an easy way for me to work within this eco-challenge. My family does not enjoy eating processed food at all. So we usually buy fresh food for the grocery store. I am not sure why eating whole food is good for the environment, but this website suggest me to do so and I feel good to follow it.

      good for you and good for the environment! processed foods tend to have less nutrients and fiber and more salt. https://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/not-all-processed-foods-are-unhealthy
