    My hubby and I have gotten on a kick of "grocery shopping in our own kitchen" before going out to purchase any new food. The creative dishes we're able to make as a result is such a huge benefit of this challenge! I am definitely sticking with meal planning as EcoChallenge officially comes to a close.

    Woo to the hoo! Yesterday's kick-off EcoChallenge event, Healthy Food, Fun & Games (taco bar & trivia), was a smashing success. Thank you to those who joined! Don't forget: Tomorrow, Thursday, 10/5, Office of Sustainability is hosting a 30-minute Climate Change 101 lunch and learn in the Elm Room of the Multnomah Building from 12 - 12:30pm. Food provided. Hope to see you there!

    Go, MultCo, go! It's so cool to login and see more of our fellow County staff registering for EcoChallenge every day. You are all amazing and have such great energy!

    Washington County just challenged us to see who could do the most good and accrue the most points! What are we going to do about it? WIN the Challenge?! Yes, I think so. Sorry, WashCo. You're super, but MultCo is super duper-er. ;-)

    Happy Monday, EcoChallengers! This week, I challenge you to spread the word to your teammates and get just ONE person to register for this year's EcoChallenge. Who's going to make this happen?!

    Greetings, EcoChallengers! Your early registration is super impressive. I'm loving seeing what everyone's picking for your Challenges. Keep 'em coming!
