    It is difficult to understand the impacts of our purchases because there are so many processes involved in the sourcing, creation, transportation, use, and disposal of a product. Participating in this challenge helps keep this fresh in my mind, which has a positive impact on my consumption choices.

    Talking to people helps, as does showing them through action. Writing letters, using social media, and signing petitions could help with advocating in the larger community.
