    I would like to take this opportunity to thank the member of my team who was active throughout this challenge and Ecochallenge for their hardwork in making this challenge possible.  I learned so much this time around; i'm grateful that we had this opportunity and for giving me the opportunity to continue learning.

    Again, when i was reading something else there was a reference to drawdown - it helps me realize how important this book and practice is for the future of the planet

    this is a time of great reflection for me; my work this year on the drawdown challenge has really inspired me to do even more in my life; i want to continue being an example for others, but want to expand that to include other habits which i've come to learn over these past months ; leading by example is my strong suite thanks to ecochallenge

    i've learned a lot from this ecochallenge; one of the best things i've learned is to eat off of smaller plates; at first it was difficult for me, but now it's second nature; i don't even notice the plate size

    it's amazing how often Drawdown Challenge comes up during conversations i'm having lately with folks not affiliated with our group - maybe there is a spark of change......
