    I had the opportunity to go camping this weekend, and a lot of the available actions for this week are already part of my camping ethos. Obviously we do our best to leave no trace. The big one for me is setting an intention to use my daily technology as little as possible. However, I have been known to take this too far such as when my partner...

    For this week's challenge, I went on a hike in Marquam Nature Park. It's not too far from campus. The trail winds up through gorgeous canyons filled with Douglas fir, western hemlock, red cedar, and bigleaf maples, not to mention the many other plant, animal, and fungus species living in the area. I was able to spend a good hour out of the...

    This week I felt was a nice simple one and was especially effective to help me take nice and calming breaks from work as finals come up, I set timers for myself when doing work to stop and take a walk outside every so often. I was mixing it up between 1 hour and 2 and my breaks varied from stepping outside in the backyard with my dog to walking...

    For this week's eco-challenge, I focused on nature by spending at least 30 minutes more outside every day than I usually do. Instead of just sitting in my room, watching TV, or just procrastinating, I chose to procrastinate outside. Even though the weather hasn't been the warmest last week, there were some sunny days, and I would just go sit...

    For my ecochallenge this week I picked walking for 20 minutes a day in nature. My birthday was on the 23rd and I went to the Oregon coast to celebrate. My girlfriend and I surpassed my goal of 20 minutes a day and averaged around like 3 hours with breaks. We went up and down the coast and explored some of the tiny towns that don't get as much...

    For this week's eco challenge, I decided to stop buying products on impulse. There are a few different items I have been wanting, and I have been forcing myself to hold off on buying them until waiting a few week's to decide if I really need it and if its really worth the cot of consumption. For example, I have been cooing with a ton of tofu...

    For this week's ecochallenge, I decided to clean out my closet and donate the clothes that I don't wear anymore to goodwill. Although, I haven't been shopping lately because I am so busy, I came up with a rule to help me think before I buy things I don't need in the future. The rule is to if I find myself wanting to buy something is to wait a...

    For this week's ecochallenge, I decided I am going to start doing a better job of tracking my expenses. I know that my lifestyle fits within my means and I am not necessarily trying to spend less money, but I want to be more thoughtful about how I spend and ensure that I am making purchases in the best interest of my future, and the future of...

    For transportation this week I wanted to just try to reduce the number of miles I drove overall, making the most of my outings and not going out unless I needed to or if going to the grocery store, doing a walk. I find it hard to calculate the total number of miles I was able to avoid driving but I think I did well, other than school and work I...

    In this week's transportation eco challenge, I decided to start taking the bus more. I usually avoid taking the bus places and either drive or ask a friend to drive with me somewhere. I typically take the MAX lines for longer distances and try to avoid the bus. However, using the bus for greater distances has actually been my preferred method....
