    Having a sense of stringer connection to nature and appreciating the feeling of from farm to table way of life. Also benefit of no pesticides and watching growth process and feeling gratitude for being nourished by the earth

    I'm finding in our current times judt how much of a one-time disposal sicirty we've become and find myself curious and connectung more with a way of  life from our past. A more connected way of living and honoring all life and nature as we are all truly one. So am looking forward to a more simpler way of life

    Picked up reusable cloth mask. It came in plastic packaging :( but thankfully it's reusuable zip packaging so will be able to reuse it to carry around mask when I'm not using it outside

    Hey Team! FYI -  For those of us who forgot to check in daily but completed their daily actions, I just saw we can go back up to 7 days to note the completed tasks for the date. Just scroll back on the date to access that day's actions. Hope that helps - sorry just finding this out :)

    Hey Team!! Just 3 days left of this challenge let's finish strong! I'm already committing to picking up litter regularly on the streets and at the beach moving forward and continue with the new plastic free habits I've picked up from this eco challenge. I've also really enjoyed pushing myself to prepare and cook zero plastic waste meals and intend to continue to make more progress in the area. Mostly it involves more wholesome whole foods not only better gor my health but also for the environment. Win Win :)
