    To all of our Columbus Zoo Staff and Volunteer team members - I can't believe how quickly July has gone! You still have a few hours to log in, check in, check off actions and post your thoughts, so go for it! I have been so impressed with our team's efforts, with your candor in sharing your successes and the actions that didn't go quite as...

    Proud of our efforts! Plastic will always be used, but hopefully single use will disappear. It can be done.....

    I love how much easier this got throughout the month. Forming some great habits 😊

    I find myself feeling very guilty when I find myself with single use plastic or non sustainables; I need to recognize when I can make improvements without being harsh and also commend myself when I do well and try to keep it up.  This was one month of great insight and just a baby step of a long journey in the right direction.

    I’ve always thought about freezing summer vegetables in glass jars but just never have. This year I put my sweet corn in glass jars and didn’t use any single use plastic bags. Thanks for the inspiration Plastic Free EcoChallenge!

    Our neighbors constantly use plastic cutlery and paper plates & napkins.  Their wedding anniversary is right around the corner, so instead of being pushy, I thought a gift would be a way to get them to switch (or at least somewhat) to stop using disposables.  🤞
