    While I haven’t done many past few days in terms of completing actions, I have been posting many items related to the ecochallange on the Sustainable Westerville Instagram and Facebook pages, so I’m going to cut myself some slack. :)

    I've had a little more spare time this week so I've been able to spend more time reading the recommended articles. Hoping to keep it up after this week as I've learned so much and feel the need to learn more!
