    It's July 1, and it's time to get this challenge started!

    I posted earlier about weekly team goals. To allow everyone time to prepare, the weekly goals will be announced in advance. The weekly goal will be assigned on Sunday, and you can complete the action as many times as you'd like throughout the week. MTM would like to see your progress! Please feel encouraged to share pictures of you, friends, family, adorable puppies, etc completing the weekly goals (submit to #Core). 

    Week 1: Watch a documentary about waste - also noteworthy, the site provides some excellent suggestions if you aren't sure where to start.
    Week 2: Pick up trash with friends and family
    Week 3: Prepare a zero-waste meal
    Week 4: "Give some green gratitude" - Participants may submit selfies holding messages recognizing others (colleagues, companies, family members, etc) for their green actions.

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

    I live right next to the bay and cringe when I see plastic waste littering the sidewalks and streets. It only takes one rainy or windy day before it all ends up in the water. I appreciate this extra motivation to do my part in picking it up before that happens, and I hope this habit long-term.

    Hi, everyone! I  am excited to see the enthusiasm for this challenge. In addition to our individual goals, we will have weekly team goals. The first goal is to watch a documentary about waste, and, if possible, discuss it with family and friends after. I am considering using Netflix Party to watch with family/friends. This allows us to stream simultaneously and use a chat function. I look forward to hearing about your experiences!
