    We've done a lot these two weeks everyone! Make sure you checkout the impact just our individual team has had in the top right corner of your dashboard. 630 lbs of CO2 saved, 890 gallons of water saved and 124 plastic bottles that haven't gone to the landfill, just to name a few.

    Planted a small herb garden last night. We don't have a lot of room in the backyard to grow a full garden, but found a convenient program that will help me keep my produce local!

    Got a reusable coffee mug from the Starbucks in the building this morning! Kicking it up from just no bottled water.

    Okay - I finally pulled the trigger and got a compost bin. We've been talking about it and finally did it. If you're in the Charlotte area, Mecklenburg County offers deals on high-quality bins at 40% discount. Check out similar deals in your area if you're interested!

    Our electric company recently installed new higher-tech meters. I went online yesterday to see what new information there was now that they're installed. It's a little scary to see our energy usage on a live, day-to-day basis but definitely helpful in changing our habits.

    Won't get done during this challenge, but been doing a lot more research into planting a garden at our house.

    It was a nice day to have lunch outside and watch the squirrels battle it out on the grounds. :)

    These flowers finally bloomed this year, thanks to using this guy's leftover water everyday to water it. Conserving water!

      Nothing like dog slobber to make those flowers bloom!
