    It has been good!  It good to remind myself to put down all electronics and distractions and concentrate on having a meal. I think this is the one action that i will definitely carry on even after the ecochallenge is over!

    Local Govt and State Govt and business need to co-operate together to reduce carbon footprint. For example in NZ, people are charged for plastic grocery bags. So many switch to carrying their own grocery bags instead.  This becomes the norm over time, and eventually everyone will get so used to bringing their own grocery bags that they won't even think about it. This is one good way to reduce plastic waste for everyone.

    Energy is produced or used by burning fossil fuels and the resources are limited and if we overconsume now, we will not be able to leave behind for future generations.
