    I feel a tiny bit guilty for taking a point for reducing animal products for my dinner on Monday - it was vegetarian, but a lot of milk went into the making of that super yummy strawberry shake from Burgerville. Yes, I could have ordered a salad as we rolled in after my son's baseball game at 8 pm, but a milk shake sounded like a much more...

    I was able to support four microloans through Kiva! One is going to a strawberry farmer in Moldova, one to a grocer in Ghana, one to an embroiderer in Tajikistan, and one to a beader in Palestine. All four are women.

    Last day of the challenge!!!  I am still thinking about electric cars and restorative agriculture.  Meatless meals have become a daily staple.  Good things coming out of this Drawdown Ecochallenge!!!

    Last day!! However, I think I am going to try to keep incorporating vegan meals into my diet, because eating vegan makes me feel better overall and because I am trying to shift my diet anyway as the planet becomes less able to sustain western diets.

    Due to the fact that I traveled on Earth Day and during the Eco Challenge I am going to look into offsetting my air travel. I’ve never done that before. Anyone have a recommendation of which company I should go  through?
