    Good morning team!  Woot woot, we are off to a FANTASTIC start with this challenge.  Our team is ranked 24th right not out of 300+ teams.  We are even close to beating my Husband's team, (SF Teaching Zoo - Zero wasters) which delights me to no end lol.  It's not too late to recruit friends and family.  Keep up the good work in completely your daily or one-time ACTIONS! And, if you have photos I would to see them. - Cheers and have a safe and healthy weekend.

    How does the act of picking up litter connect you more to your community?

    Angie Adkin-Miot 7/02/2020 5:55 PM
    My kiddos and I picked up trash in one of our local fields.I explained why it was important to keep our natural areas free of rubbish and then it became a game to see who could the most.

    What did you find out about your plastic consumption by using the calculator? What did or didn't surprise you?

    Angie Adkin-Miot 7/01/2020 5:09 AM
    I really found this website and calculator informative.  It can be hard to guesstimate some of the questions they ask...but, it really got me thinking about my strengths and weaknesses when it comes to plastic consumption.  I am also curious as to how the Europeans consume less plastic that Americans...it seems to me that we need to adopt some of the Europeans standards and tactics when it comes to plastic reduction.

    Hello fellow Eco-friends! Happy July 1st and day one of our challenge.

    I am so proud of you for signing up!  This is going to be so much fun. I can't wait to learn and grow with you all. If you haven't already, check 'Edit Actions' to see what mini-challenges you would like to participate in.  There are also excellent educational links that are fun to explore.

    I did the 'Plastic Footprint Calculator' found in the 'Community section' of Actions (see attached photo)...and, I know I can do better.  Please feel free to share your Footprint on our dashboard and/or any tricks you have learned to reduce your plastic consumption. Cheers :) - Angie

    Hi Team, we are only a few days away from the kick-off to our plastic free eco-challenge. Yay! If you haven't already, it's a great time to start reviewing and selecting the daily and/or one-time actions you would like to try. If you click on the 'Manage Actions' tab it will take you to the various categories to select from. And, if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask either on this dashboard (or via a facebook message). Keep in mind that you score points for any message you write on our dashboard, or people you recruit :)  -Angie

    Hello everyone,

    Welcome to the All Creatures Podcast plastic free eco-team...and, welcome back to many of you from last year!  I am excited for the July 2020 plastic free eco-challenge.  We can do this! Now that I am spending more time than ever at home, it's going to be a perfect time to learn more ways to reduce my plastic consumption and to incorporate some behavioral modifications life and home. If you can, please think about family and friends that might want to join us and send them an invite.  The more the merrier :)  Also if you have any suggestions of what I can do as a Team Captain to help motivate and attract more participants, please let me know.
