    I first engaged in the Ecochallenge with members of our church several years ago - I actually cannot remember when. Since then, we have paid attention to the amount of water we use in the shower and washing dishes by hand.

    I wasn't able to accomplishing any of my challenges yesterday because remodeling my basement bathroom had kept me too busy. Hopefully the remodel will make it more energy efficient. I will at least install a low flow shower head to reduce water usage.
