    It's only Day 2, but so far my ecochallenge is going well.  Some of the "one-time" actions, like having a discussion or watching a video, can really be done more often.

    I was glad to see that I am doing some actions, but I can do more.  This year, I want to really get educated about the harms of and alternatives to plastics and then get the word out to family and friends!

    Hey Columbus Zoo team, get psyched about this years' challenge!  Invite friends, neighbors, families, pets - well, maybe not pets.  There is no better time to say no to single-use plastics that we can easily do without.

      Hi Mike, what actions do you plan to take during the challenge to #reduceyouruse? I am excited to learn about all the ways that our teammates will make changes in their day to day lives to reduce single-use plastic consumption. Thanks for being part of our team!
