    Been cutting down on my meat eating for a long time, I haven't eaten beef in about 6 months but have been able to stay away from chicken, fish, and pork pretty easily. Ride to school on my bike any day that it isn't raining. And have been able to only buy one or two things that have plastic.

    Just realized I can get points for being part of a non-profit or environmental organization. I have been a member of the Sierra Club and 350.org for almost two years and they do some great work in Oregon. And I decided to try and sign up with the FreshWater Trust and Oregon Wild, two local non-profits that I am in contact with to hopefully find a job...so hopefully that counts.
    I have been collecting my waste for the past week to see my landfill impact but during that time I have been able to drastically reduce my plastic consumption, and have been avoiding plastic any chance I can.

    Does any body know if we can go back to previous days and plug in our work or is there no going back after the day?

      I think you can go back - I'm not sure how far back tho...

    Not easy to try and save all of your waste, especially when you are out and about, but it's working.
