    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....

    My eco-change project is centered on transportation and riding my bike more. So, I wanted to do something a bit adventurous and out of the box for this week. I chose to "feel the distance" as I've been calling it, which means that I chose to walk to places I typically drive to, like the grocery store. There is a grocery store about a...

    This week's topic of transportation was one I was excited about. I decided to just generally try and drive less, and walk more. I recently just got a new job that is only a mile away from my house. I would say the old me would prioritize convenience and drive there, but I have forced myself to be organized, plan ahead, and have the time and...
