    I'm working hard to continue with the changes I made in the challenge :D  I'm constantly surprised at how much we have to recycle!

    I'm hoping that I continue with everything I've started!
    Also, I know I'm not going to win the Looptworks backpack, but through this challenge I've also been able to learn about several different products that are eco-minded that I look forward to trying out :D

    One of my favorite things about this challenge has been reading about what others have done, there have been a lot of creative and innovative ways people have completed these challenges and I hope to use some of the things I have learned about during this challenge and to complete things that I wanted to but was unable to at this time. The things that I have committed to doing throughout this challenge though, should and will become habits for me. It's important that everyone do what they can, because every bit makes a difference; just look at the impact we've made in two weeks!

    I hope that most of us will be able to continue this  conscientious effort to conserve resources at all aspects of daily living until it becomes second nature. Something as simple as taking the bus has become transformative in a very personal way. Time to think, time to appreciate the blueness of the sky and decompress. I certainly will try my best to carry these small changes forward.

    I am thankful for the EcoChallenge. It has been helpful to me in many ways and I am proud of the new habits I have made. I am now more conscious of some negative environmental impacts my behavior leads to, and have made changes to lessen the negative impact. The biggest gain I got though was more personal. In limiting my social media to one time per day, I actually found myself not going to my social media account at all, or just going the one time as planned. It opened up time for me to do more important things. I have also been much more conscious of checking work emails when not working. I appreciate that those activities were part of the challenge.

    Thanks!

    • Thank you for sharing, Treasure - we're delighted EcoChallenge resulted in positive behaviors for you.

      Treasure - I'm so glad you've enjoyed the EcoChallenge and have developed new habits. As the challenge comes to an end, I'm looking through the challenges to tackle some additional challenges and add more good habits. The social media challenge resonates with me...I may have to add that to my list to tackle next! :)
