    I guess we only have so many days left of this challenge. At least we made it to the top 30 as a team!

    I wish I could go on more hikes more often. Being outdoors allows you to see life from new perspectives instead of seeing the same parking lot from my window. I get to see the ecosystems of a variety of animals and on occasion the past people that have come through.

    Prior to getting my Brita pitcher, I just feared all the different things in tap water. But after buying the reusable pitcher and filter, it has cleared all that fear.

    Great job so far, everyone! Let's get a few actions in these past three days. Try enjoying a meal free of meat products today.  Oct 16 ecochallenge.png 1.95 MB

    I found this challenge to be more difficult than I expected. Many times, servers at restaurants will give you straws before you can even notice, then they will end up in the trash even if you don't use them. Sometimes they will even put them in the drink for you. It definitely made me more mindful of useless waste.
