    I'm seeing a lot of great impacts everybody is making! There's something for everybody to improve upon and one of the things I've been trying to do is be more conscious of how long my showers are... I learned that five minutes goes by real quick but to have a productive shower, you definitely don't need more than five minutes (despite how easy it is to go over)!

    If competition is what motivates you, then you should know we're in 25th place so far and have the 16th highest team membership. You can earn points before the challenge officially begins on the 11th by going through all the challenges and marking off the ones that you already do today or have done recently, like using a reusable water bottle or recycling your electronics.
