    I feel very accomplished after completing this task! After cleaning out two closets in my house, I now have so much more storage space! Completing this challenge definitely will help me reduce stress in my life!

    I joined the challenge for two reasons. First, I enjoy learning about ways that we can help to save our planet. Already, I've discovered that sustainability is much easier than I imagined. It doesn't take much to make a big difference. The second reason I joined was to share our team's progress on Lincoln Learning Solutions' social media channels. As an organization, we are proud to support the efforts of this Ecoteam! ATTENTION ECOTEAM MEMBERS: Please send me photos of your progress and I'll be sure to share them online!  Go team!

    I’m collecting water that would otherwise be thrown away (such as unused bottles of water or water used to boil food), and then will use that to water plants. This will help to conserve water in my house.
