    I've found that eating 1 meal outdoors each day has helped my mood and productivity! It also reminds me to pause and appreciate the nature around me.

    What's your #EcoChallenge? Make your own EcoChallenge Selfie with this template (link below) !
    I committed to limiting myself to 5 minute showers each day and am totally acing it! Feels great knowing I'm conserving WAY more water than I was before.
