    Welcome to all the new members!  Great to see so many RHS students signing up.  How many of you have already started your challenges?  I know they can't be logged yet but I figured I might as well start a new GREAT habit.  How about you?  Have you changed anything since you joined?

    Does anyone remember the old Faberge Organics Shampoo ad? Heather Locklear loved it so much that she told two friends and they told two friends and so on and so on and so on!  Well that's just one way we can grow engagement( and show our age!) 
    RBK EcoChalleng hit 76 members today!! So excited to keep spreading the word and changing habits.  I think I have cut my single-use plastic usage in half.  Already noticing the change in how much garbage our house is producing.  Haven't started to compost yet...but that's next.
    Let's go eco warriors!

    We would love to hear how you are gearing up for the EcoChallenge!  Are you making subtle changes?  Have you discovered that you are already doing many things to reduce waste or cut back on fossil fuels?  Or are you considering major changes? Feel free to share your thoughts and ideas   💚🌍.

    Kicking off the  Rhinebeck EcoChallenge this week.  Many many thanks to Sarah Duffer (an environmental science teacher) for getting a handful of us involved after her inspiring presentation at the Drawdown Learn Conference.  Here we go.....
