Team West Linn Feed


Reflection, encouragement, and relationship building are all important aspects of getting a new habit to stick.
Share thoughts, encourage others, and reinforce positive new habits on the Feed.

To get started, share “your why.” Why did you join the challenge and choose the actions you did?

    It was a good EcoChallenge! My actions felt worthwhile but not too onerous. This year, I decided to pick actions for my health and well-being that I thought I could accomplish since, though I get exercise and eat a pretty healthy and low on the food chain diet, I don't tend to spend focused time on mental health, happiness, etc. There were larger actions that I wish I could tackle but didn't think I could attempt this year. Maybe next? Good job, everyone!

    Another thought: Has anyone learned something while participating in the EcoChallenge that you want to explore further? Curious about global impacts of certain practices, maybe?

    It's been really great to see all the different ways that we've added new sustainable practices over the past couple of weeks. To me, it's a good reminder that making lots of little choices over the course of a day don't feel like a burden but add up to making a big difference.

    It was a successful challenge, and having a cold house is not so bad.  Even with the temperature set to 65 degrees I had to open up all the windows when we had a large gathering last weekend.

    I have really enjoyed this challenge. It has prompted me to be more conscientious on a daily basis about what I am reusing, recycling, saving, etc. I've also really enjoyed seeing what my co-workers are doing to be more mindful in their daily lives. Kudos to all of you who participated!

    Walking to starbucks with my reusable cup is keeping paper cups from the landfill and getting exercise at the same time.

    I'm 600 pages into the extended edition of The Stand because I challenged myself to replace screen time but not lying down time.

    Today I was thankful that we clean and save aluminum foil for reuse. I needed a piece to put over the dinner casserole and the role of new foil was nearly out. I found a usable reuse piece down in the drawer. Dinner was saved!

    What?!  Turns out I need to eat more fruits and vegetables.  
    Success=an apple or celery with peanut butter instead of a granola bar.  
    Easy to prep when I am already making a snack for my kiddo.
