    I think the Eco challenge is important to allow people to reflect and be introspective about their actions and the effects is has on the rest of the world around them.

    The Eco challenge has been interesting and I have enjoyed seeing my smaller actions compound into something great!

    If I can't use a reusable bag, I would honestly most likely just use a plastic bag. I thankfully haven't run into this situation as of yet. If I were to encounter this problem often, I would shop at places with carts, put my items in the cart, take it out to my car, and put my items in reusable bags that I keep handy inside of my car.

    There definitely is something very therapeutic about watching the sunrise/sunset, and for many, it is considered a way of "establishing a relationship with the planet".

    I agree. We need to appreciate our earth more and not take things such as the sunset/sunrise for granted.
