    I vowed to commit multiple goals for the EcoChallenge 2016 and can honestly say I achieved each one with not too much difficulty.I walked to campus for my classes so the daily walking and transportation goals were not too difficult for me to meet but I was curious as to how I would meet the goal for exploring a new nature trail/walk.I decided...

    This challenge was difficult for me at first since this is my first year with a car and it is really convenient to just drive to pick up items I might require.

Building off this goal I also tried to reuse the bottle for a few days before buying a completely different bottle. I...

    For my EcoChallenge I chose to shower for less than 5 minutes and to turn off the faucet while brushing my teeth. It was a challenge to get in and out of the shower that fast and to use shampoo, conditioner and body wash during that time period. Turning off the faucet while brushing my teeth however was easier to accomplish yet difficult to...
