    Great Challenge! Started lots of new sustainable habits and will continue to rethink some actions.

    ATTEND THE ECOCHALLENGE CONSERVATION WEBINAR My apologies for the delayed comment here, but I found the Webinar very informative one of the most interesting facts that I learned was in regard to the biomass of mammals on earth. Did you know that 60% of the worlds mammalian biomass comes from livestock? and another 36% comes from humans? There...

    I can't believe this is the last Friday of April. It went so quickly, yet, so much has been accomplished. Next week we will have one last in-person activity in celebration of Earth Month: Lunch & Learn with Western Disposal. Composting and recycling are still big challenges on our campus, come learn more and spread the knowledge. Tues,...

    During this challenge, I've been more aware of the little pieces of litter around me. It only takes a minute to pick it up and has made me feel really happy to be able to do a little thing to make the area around me more beautiful. I also saw a guy the other day walking his dog in a park and he picked up about 20 pieces of trash during his...

    I had a great Cabbage Stir Fry vegetarian meal today at the Boulder Cafeteria. I didn't miss the meat and ate the whole thing.

    I signed up today for this app: "Too Good to Go". Their mission is to fight food waste, which according to trustworthy sources accounts for 1/3 of all food produced for human consumption. 1.3 billion tons/year = 1.3 x 10^12 kg of Food. The app connects you (consumer) to business that have surpluses that would go to waste. Businesses...

    SMART SEAFOOD CHOICES: After researching this topic to a small degree, it seems clear to me that not all fish are the same in terms of their environmental impact. some types of fish are significantly more costly to farm than others (per gram of protein that we get from them.) According to Wholely.com, the worst offenders for the environment are...

    ENDANGERED SPECIES: I have been researching on the Colorado Parks & Wildlife threatened and endangered species list, and I was particularly focused on the amphibians and fish species (such as the Razorback Sucker or the Couch's Spadefoot) that are becoming endangered due to human development of dams and the various chemicals that we pump...

    In honor of Earth day yesterday, I joined the neighborhood effort to clean up our local greenway! It was as easy as taking the dog for walk and bringing and bag (and a glove, some of that trash was nas-ty!) to pick up trash along the way. It was so easy and something I hope I will do every once in a while outside of an organized event!

    In honor of Earth Day yesterday, I attempted a zero waste day. I could not believe how hard it was! I was extremely confident going into the challenge that I was going to breeze through it, only to find myself going to the trash can again and again all day. It's easy to be conscious about obvious waste substitutes (such as using a reusable...
