    I had a really great day! I spent my whole time outside weeding and tending to the front of my parent's garden. Been more mindful of my showers and flushes. So far have been beating my time spent with 5 min showers! Going to sign off for tonight after doing some homework. See you all tomorrow. 
  • Reflection Question
    Water 5-Minute Showers
    Five minute showers are an impressive step toward reducing your water footprint. What is the next step you can take?

    Who knew that 5 minutes was so short! Going to be hard to break my 15-minute showers.

    Hello ECOchallenge 2020 participants -- With the change of everything that is going on I think the results of this challenge will be interesting and more impactful to ourselves in the long run. We will have more time to think and do what we want to accomplish. One of the reasons I wanted to try this is to get out of my comfort zone and see what my peers are doing and to learn from myself. Please be well and have fun tomorrow!
