    Hey Houston team!

    The Ecochallenge is only a few days in, so be sure to check your Actions and see how you can start earning points! With daily actions, everyone can earn a few points every day, especially for some of the easier tasks. As people complete tasks, the platform will track our impact under the “Impacts” tab at the Deloitte level, Team level, and individual level. You'll see that even by tracking the smallest things, collective impact will add up --Deloitte already broke its record for participants this year!
    As always, let me know if you have any questions about managing your actions, and remember that anyone can join the challenge even though it's already started--so feel free to continue sending referral links to those you think may be interested!
