    It felt great to de-clutter my home and donate good quality home items to the Portland non-profit Community Warehouse, as well as clothes to Buffalo Exchange and Good Will. I also donated my (28-year-old!) car for re-use and then recycling: its parts will be used to keep other old cars running (hopefully cars with better gas mileage than it had), and since it was an old car, it had a lot of metal that can be recycled into new products.

    Howdy BPSers. I'm excited for EcoChallenge to officially kick off tomorrow. So far we are trailing BDS by 100 points. That's easy to make up by visiting the calendar every day to log your actions. We can do this!  Here are some other tips for scoring more points.

    I didn't get around to doing a Spring Cleaning so I'll work on a Fall Cleaning, and then take home goods to the non-profit Community Warehouse.

    How shall we celebrate?  I will organize an office event for those who sign up AND participate this year. I've got a few good suggestions so far including - local donuts and coffee. An apple and pear tasting. What are your ideas?
