    This  challenge helped me see that  although I have made some  progress, I  have a ton of room to grow on just the basics ...  I need to take my bags  whenever I go out. I put them in my car.

    I feel the most  important thing I can do in this life is teach my children good stewardship of our beautiful planet.
