    Nearing the end of the Challenge! I'm not sure I'll be able to maintain *every* habit I tried to create long-term, but I know that I'll see some lasting benefits from this exercise.

    Anyone doing the "Watch a Documentary" action? If so, the EcoFilm Festival is happening this week from the 20th to the 23rd, and it looks like a few of the selections have to do with food issues:

    For any who are interested in offsetting plane travel, I did a bunch of research and can recommend NativeEnergy as a provider. They're highly rated by and have their offsets verified by two third parties. As offsets go, these guys seem legit.

    Many thanks to Rodrigo, who's doing such an excellent job of recruiting team members! Can't wait to see what kind of change we can make in the coming weeks.

    Looking forward to trying my hand at meal planning! Happy side benefit (apart from healthier eating and reduced food waste)? Saving money on last-minute takeout!
