My Ecochallenge: 

During Earth Week 2012 I WILL:

* Bring my own reusable mug every time I buy coffee/tea on the go
* Watch the STORY OF STUFF
* Reduce paper by arranging for e-billing and statements instead of mailed paper copies.
* Bring my own bags every time I shop
* Avoid bottled water/juices/liquids and instead use a reusable mug or thermos
* Start a compost to reduce the amount of trash my household produces
* Think and buy second-hand - books, clothes, furniture, and more are easy items to find
* Clean out my home of unused appliances, items, clothes and donate them
* Use only natural or organic cleaning products or try making my own
* Reuse paper use by printing on both sides
* Reduce the amount of unwanted mail I receive (stop unwanted catologsstop junk mail)

Why I'm participating in the Ecochallenge: 

I am participating in Eco challenge because I must - because we must.

We, as global citizens, are realizing that we must move away from the “take-make-waste” model that has dominated much of the industrialized world towards a truly sustainable way of living. How do we do this? We must change policy. However, we must also change our behavior and habits. That is what Ecochallenge is about.
