    I had a lot of fun doing this challenge.  I always try to do my part by recycling and volunteering to clean beaches, but this challenge made me go out back and clean the canal that I live on, and I think my neighbors took notice.  I also switched the auto-setting on my washing machine to "tap cold" water; my clothes are just as clean!  I'll keep it going--There Is No Planet B!

    As I look to improve the energy efficiency in my home, I  need less electricity and thus rely less on carbon-intensive power plants. This reduces my home's demand from the plant, which in turn benefits the environment by reducing their carbon dioxide emissions.

    What concerns me the most about how we are affecting the planet is global warning. Global warming is the long-term heating of Earth's climate system observed since the pre-industrial period due to human activities, primarily fossil fuel burning, which increases heat-trapping greenhouse gas levels in Earth's atmosphere.
