The Intertwine Alliance 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 has been such a great few weeks. I plan to keep up these changes into the future, especially staying off social media!

    I echo what Lauriel said about EcoChallenge falling at a very busy time of year for The Intertwine Alliance -- but then again, it seems like every time of year has become a very busy time of year! Alas. Participating in this year's challenge was very valuable in helping me understand how my personal habits are formed and potentially changed. I'd vote for a four-week EcoChallenge; feels like I only just got started! Thank you to David Macek and the entire amazing Northwest Earth Institute team.

    Ecochallenge always falls on a very busy time for us at The Intertwine Alliance, and it has been really hard to find the time to get outside! Even as an organization that advocates for this type of activity.

      We had the same problem over at GPSEN! I think we also share a problem with recruiting team members - we are both networks of organizations that are already working on sustainability themselves (and have their own teams, in many cases). But thanks for participating with us!

    Went for a walk this morning before work and it was lovey!

    I cannot believe how hard it's been to remember to power off my computers! Habits are strong, indeed.

    I'm halfway through a novel since getting off of social media! It has been years since I have read for fun like this.

    I used to only power down my computer over the weekends since it takes a while to reboot, but knowing how much energy it is using I chose it for one of my challenges, and now I just use that extra time to make my (first) cup of coffee!

    I had such a hard time being a good Ecochallenger over the weekend! I confess. But today I rededicate myself. :)
