    I watched Lost and Found about the families that get separated fleeing Myanmar. I learned that so many families are in need of help all over the world. I will pray for them.

    I'm trying to turn off lights more often at work and home, if not needed. Also, I'm using a small light on my desk instead of overhead lights to focus better as well as lessening energy impact.

    I will try to remember to bring my reusable shopping bags into the grocery store. I used to do this on a regular basis but somehow got away from it.

    It is harder than it seems. I used to meditate so this has been a good reminder to get back to it. I hope to continue after this Eco challenge by putting a reminder on my calendar.

    Someone recommended the YouTube Documentary called "What the Health?" I loved it. I am on the road to becoming Vegan.

    I made a donation to Second Servings of Houston, a non-profit organization that picks up prepared food that would otherwise go to waste and delivers it to their community partners.
