    Thank You to everybody that participated in this Challenge. We made a difference and hopefully we will continue our quest for a better lifestyle. One that is more in tune with our planet and the needs of all. 
    I have been working on this lifestyle for over 7 years now and have made great progress, I still have lots to do. Being part of this team/challenge, warmed my heart. To see so many people who care and are willing to try. For the first time in years, I felt like I was part of something instead of that odd person that people look at strangely..... For that, I am grateful.... Its our last day, Lets make it count ! Currently we're in third place. It would be nice to be in first. Love to all and Thank You

    My recycle - just cuz.
    It would be less if I didn’t have cats
    But look only 1 Piece of plastic.
    It’s the top to my ice tea mix. I have 2 things I need to change.
    1. Make my ice tea from tea bags
    2. Make my own cat food.
    I will start working on that.

    Happy Monday ! So we put in a rain barrel collection system in our community garden.
    It got myself and my neighbor's involved in an activity, started us talking about having a better variety of vegetables and limited fruit, I live in PA. We are also working on a donation plan so none of what we grow go's to waste...
    Now I need a nap ! I'm lucky if I got 6 hours sleep all weekend.... 
    Love to all
