    This challenge gets me excited to find new ways to incorporate sustainability in my life. Recently I have been doing Bokashi composting and its way easier than regular composting and I like it a lot! I've also been using towels in the bathroom at work to decrease my use of paper towels! #IAmSustainablePGH
