    Only 6 days left Team ESR! I am so happy to have had this experience through Earth Month.  This Eco challenge has taught me so much about how small steps turn into big rewards to the impact we have on our normal every day of living.  Thanks for this opportunity to open my eyes to the bigger things in life, sustainability for our Earth's future. Be well.

    Hello Team ESR, I am excited and nervous all in one.  I am excited to be a part of this, and see how I can challenge myself to ensure a safer and better future for all of us.  Good luck everyone, and any pointers for me would be much appreciated.  This is my first time doing this, so a little nervous, but lots of excitement.  Peace

      No need to be nervous, any act you do to make something better is appreciated. I am excited to find new challenges and to hold myself accountable. This should be liberating and I look forward to this opportunity with this team.
