    It has been an exciting 3 weeks! Though the challenge has to end today, the journey of lowering my carbon footprint does not. If anything, this challenge has made me even more motivated to raise awareness and look deeper into the plethora of ways I can make my life a more sustainable one. Thanks Drawdown and Omega for another year!

    What concerns me is how it harms the animals. What is happening to their environment. We might think that plastic is helpful and sometime the easier way to do things but you don't know what it is doing to other animals and creatures.

    You could always tell yourself "do I really need this water" for example, some people only drink like half of the water they bring to school so they could get water from the fountain provided at school, or fill it up a little bit and when you run out fill it up a little bit more.

    Over spring break I flew to Orlando, FL. I just offset my entire family's carbon footprint. I don't fly all that often. Once, maybe twice a year. Anything within a 10 hour car drive, I drive or take mass transit. It's better for the environment.

    I want my students to believe that our school community really means it when they say that they want to be a sustainable responsible place. We should not provide plastic water bottles at meetings and other gatherings instead we should provide pitchers filled with water and paper cups.  It is an important step toward changing the mindset toward.
