    Just got back from traveling, and managed to make a difference while I was gone!  I refused straws every time they were offered, kept my contacts and packaging for recycling, and picked up trash when I saw it on the trails.  So glad to see our progress over the last week - KEEP IT UP!

    I am so excited to see the contact lens recycling program - as I wear daily lenses, I generate a lot of plastic waste just to see.
