    I originally joined this program to do something for the Earth and see how I could improve my day to day lifestyle.  Not only have I achieved these goals, with the help of this wonderful community, but I've also gained a deeper understand and respect for our planet which I can thank you all for.  It has been a pleasure, and I think we can all safely say that our efforts will not stop here.  There is only one road to save the planet, after all, and it is one paved without plastic.  Well wishes from Washington.

    Amazing!  I find that I really like the idea of helping  Earth, and though its is definitely more of a challenge than I originally thought, that just adds to the reward.
