    This website is the ultimate guide to reducing food waste! They have meal planning and prep guides, food storage tips, and even recipe suggestions to turn scraps and "past-its-prime" food into a meal  https://savethefood.com/

    I was pretty surprised to see how much food we actually threw out over the course of a week! I'd rather use that $1,500 (or hopefully much less for us going forward!) for pretty much anything!!!

    Support more organizations that advocate for the health care needs of girls all over the world. We need to make sure our educational systems recognize the basic needs that young girls require and that's done through educating the puplic and policy reform.

    I got really good at saying ‘no straw please’ at restaurants and asking for no silverware when getting takeout. I even brainwashed my kids - at restaurants they would tell the server to bring their drinks in glass, not plastic!

    This has been a fun and rewarding challenge.  The fact that we challenged ourselves to be better custodians of our planet and learned more ways in which we can help reduce carbon emissions and support climate change and global warming solutions we are all winners. Way to go team!

    I think single-use plastics and our culture's consumerism are big issues affecting the environment. Single-use plastics and plastic packaging is a huge issue, and as society continues to buy new things rather than reuse, plastic and packaging waste will continue to grow.
