    Hi Team! It's been a stressful week! Take an opportunity to watch a sunset or sunrise (challenge item!) over the next few days to help find some peace and balance. Enjoy the weekend! Go Team!

    Hi all! Thanks for your participation in this effort! This is a neat tool to help us brainstorm individual actions--often that push us beyond our everyday comfort zone--that can make a difference! Let's all aim for at least 5 personal actions, in waste or other. I welcome your feedback at our next team meeting, thank you! Elissa
