    I am so thankful to have been able to join this challenge! I learned a lot along the way about how we as humans can help decrease our carbon footprint.

    I use way too many plastic bags. Reusable bags would be a good alternative.

    I had heard about biomass before this challenge, specifically how algae is an emerging biomass energy source. However, I was surprised to learn that biomass is the largest renewable energy implemented in Europe!

    For some reason, Americans tend to associate eating meat with wealth and status. Steak seems to be a favorite of the wealthy, and Americans want to emulate this. It is sad to see the amount of land that is wasted on beef production, especially when considering how the land could be used for renewable energy generation.

    I've been losing weight since late 2017, so this was a natural transition for me. I'm currently up to 55 pounds lost and counting! Eating smaller portions keeps the mind more alert and active, reducing the feeling of sluggishness that is all too common after eating a bunch.

    Electric and hybrid vehicles are starting to be around the same price as the gas only counterparts and that shows that everyone has the availability to use electricity to get around anywhere nowadays
