    Loving getting my roommates involved by opting that the entire apartment recycle during this challenge!

      Welcome Sandra! I've heard other team members say that too - that their relationships have been enhanced by their new behaviors. So cool!

      I see most of your challenges are focused towards water, are you studying any components of water, conservation, flow, etc. or is it simply an interest area?

      Great!  Thank you for joining our team and getting your roommates involved.  How many roommates do you have?
